Everyone entering the Federated States of Micronesia must be in possession of a valid passport or other travel document issued by the government of the country of citizenship or nationality in which they are travelling. The document must be valid for at least 120 days from the date of entrance and must not be expired. Citizens and nationals of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the United States are exempt from this rule if they can also provide proof of citizenship or nationality, such as a birth certificate or an entry permit, in addition to their other documents. In addition, their nationals are awarded an entrance permit that is good for up to one year. Other countries are permitted to remain for a period of 30 days, which may be extended for a total of 60 days. There is a departure tax that must be paid.
On September 20, 2016, the Republic of Micronesia and the European Union inked a reciprocal visa waiver agreement. This agreement permits all nationals of nations that are contracting parties to the Schengen Accord to enter and remain in the Schengen Area without a visa for a maximum of 90 days in any 180-day period under the terms of the agreement.
