Re: French Polynesia Bound? Updated Long Stay Visa Info, Marquesas Food Costs, etc.

Hi Chuck,

Dunno if the current crop of cruisers appreciates how useful (nay, essential) your posts are,but that sort of info would sure have made our lives easier back when we were cruising FP. Good onya, mate!

Hi, just to clarify. A long term visa is 12 mths? How many times can you renew this? I saw on your website you stayed three years?

Guys like you make it so much easier for the rest of us due to your blogs /websites. Thankyou.

Long Stay visas are either 6 or 12 months - be careful of what box you check on the application. Some applications do not have a box to check so make sure its clear in the written portion of the application.

Linda has recently renewed her carte de sejour (what you receive in FP after your paperwork is processed) 3 times. Very easy to renew and you can continue to renew each year. At the 5 year mark you can then apply for residency.

The issue is that the boat can only stay for 3 years before either importing it or going to the Cooks or Pitcairn(depending on what side of FP you are on) and then returning to reset the clock. You only need to be out less than 1 day but need official clearance paperwork to show FP customs.

I am just about to update our Long Stay Visa writeup (Version 15) and post back up to our website. Clarifying bond requirements.

Warm regards
