Polynesia’s maritime borders are still closed.

No Comments

"For the time being, the reopening of maritime borders is not on the agenda. Pleasure boating to Polynesia is still prohibited unless an exemption is granted. The quarantine is maintained and there are only 3 ports of call into French Polynesia, Nuku Hiva, Rikitea and Papeete.

At the end of the health emergency period, July 10, 2020, things will be reconsidered."

Navigation possible but limited

No Comments

From April 19th until May 12th, 2020, pleasure boating is allowed within 2 miles of your island. Ni inter-island is allowed unless approved by DPAM. No passage between Taihiti and Moorea is allowed. It is prohibited for all pleasure craft on an international voyage towards French Polynesia to stop, anchor or station here, or to offload anyone in the territorial waters until further notice.

Art. 11: By way of derogation to Art. 10, the head of Maritime Affairs, in relation with the local Maritime Authority, may authorize a stop over or anchorage of a pleasure craft in need of technical assistance or re-provisioning under the heading of international agreements. Such granted authorizations are for a limited time. In this case, pleasure vessels must announce themselves forty eight (48) hours prior to arrival, the captain must make contact and indicate the health status of all persons to the Port of Papeete and the JRCC, and advise as the case may be the relevant symptoms (fever, cough…). The passengers and crew of these vessels authorized to stop over are not authorized to disembark, at a dock or at sea without having observed quarantine on board the vessel for at least 14 days from their last stop over. After this period, the rules in force for all other people will apply to those on board.

Expiry of short term visa

No Comments

Requirements concerning non-resident boats and crew. This is as we understand it today (April 8th, 2020). We are seeking confirmation from the authorities, but have not yet received confirmation. We obviously will post any confirmation or new update.

After a new contact with the High Commission, it appears that a clarification is needed regarding the non-resident boats and crew currently present in French Polynesia.

There are currently (April 8th, 2020) two different sets of requirements.

  1. DPAM (Maritime Affairs of French Polynesia) requires every non-resident boat to register with them. See This is strictly for the Maritime Affairs to be informed about the location of boats in the territory.
    The form to use is: https://www.service-public.pf/dpam/wp-content/uploads/sites/20/2020/03/FICHE-DEROGATON-NAVIRE-PLAISANCE-v2-.pdf
    This is to be sent to: cathy.rocheteau@maritime.gov.pf
  2. High Commission: Unlike what we were told earlier, holders of short term visas need to apply for an exceptional and motivated visa extension at the “Etrangers” department of the High Commission. This application must include:
    • Name of the person concerned
    • Boat name
    • Current location
    • Copy of passport (front page and page holding the visa)
    • Date of expiry of the visa
    • A cover letter with the specific request for visa extension
    • Reason for the request

    Although it may appear obvious that the last point includes the lock down obligation AND the fact that no port West of FP currently accepts new incoming boats, it is a requirement that the exceptional request for extension be motivated.

    This request for extension is to be sent to : etrangers@polynesie-francaise.pref.gouv.fr
