Most tourists are granted a visitors permit on arrival to the Solomon Islands. You do not need a visa to enter the Solomon Islands if you are a Commonwealth citizen, a citizen of the United States, or a citizen from most European countries.
From 28 December 2019, to enter Solomon Islands you will need to show proof of vaccination against measles. Failure to do so may result in deportation or being unable to board your inbound flight. Bring your official vaccination record with you. You must be vaccinated at least 15 days prior to arrival.
To be approved for a visitors permit you must:
- Hold a valid passport, with six months validity beyond your departure date and with blank pages to accommodate stamps.
Have either a return or an onward ticket,
- Be able to show evidence of sufficient funds to support yourself while in the Solomons, and
- Have a valid visa to enter other countries from the Solomon Islands, if required.
