If a yacht enters French Polynesia
at the Marquesas how long do they have before they are required to leave. Can the permit
be renewed and what does it cost. What are the restrictions I'm going to more exotic land falls like the Gambiers.
If you are EU you can stay forever without a visa. For most everyone else you can obtain a 3 month visa upon entry that is not renewable. Not dependent on nationality the boat
can stay 3 years before incurring duty(tax). Checking into the Marquesas, Gambiers, Australs or Tuamotus all are done easily by the Gendarmes.
If you want to apply for a long stay visa our write up on our website jacarandajourney.com in"Other Good Stuff". should help you answer all your questions. We have worked hard to keep it very current
You can only apply and obtain a long stay visa outside of FP at a French consulate. The French Consulate does not have to be in your country of residence. Panama
is the easiest to apply for a FP long stay visa.
