Wallis & Futuna

Does anyone have any information about this group, especially clearance into Futuna and accuracy of charts.

Noonsite.com has a bit of information. Anse de Sigave is the port of entry. As far as I can tell, this is a French territory and will be similar to entering any other French territory. The same for charts, I assume. (Never been, no experience, just going by what I see online.)

No problems Mark, it's just a quick in & out in a stinkpot to clear Fiji customs. The owner/cook is worth around $84million dollars but that better not prevent him helping refuel 1200 litres of fuel in jerry cans when we get there.
Thanks Amgine, info seems pretty sparse.
