What to do if your Haiti visa is refused?
You have the right to contest this verdict. The embassy of the Member State that opted to deny the visa distributes a standard form to notify the applicant of the decision to deny a Haiti visa and the reasons for the denial. People regularly ask us how we can “guarantee” the issuance of a visa. Because all final decisions are made by embassies, there is no way to obtain a 100 percent guarantee. All you can do is ensure that your application is as strong as possible. Please reach out with us if your visa application has been refused.
Haiti enables nationals of the majority of nations to remain without a visa for three months. All non-Haitian passport holders are required to pay a $10 tourist fee upon entry. Visitors must possess passports that are valid for at least six months beyond their intended period of stay.
There are no import or export restrictions on local or foreign currencies. Nevertheless, sums above $10,000 USD or its equivalent must be declared.
Agriculture is the largest sector of the Haitian economy, employing nearly two-thirds of the labour force but contributing less than one-quarter of the gross domestic product (GDP).
