Customers originating from the Dominican Republic who wish to travel to the Commonwealth of Dominica are reminded that a Visa is required for entry into that island. Please be advised that passengers who are not in possession of this document will be denied entry.


Haitian and Dominican Republic Nationals must obtain a transit visa when transiting Antigua and Barbuda.  This position applies even where a passenger is transiting for less than 24 hours.  There is no need for a transit visa where a passenger is continuing on the same carrier and/or is transiting without going through Immigration. Persons can visit to obtain their transit visas.



Electronic System for Travel Authorisation(ESTA)

LIAT advises its customers that there are now additional requirements to travel visa-free to the United States. Nationals of Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries need an electronic travel authorisation (ESTA) before travelling to the United States. Effective 1 April 2016, customers must have an e-passport to use the Visa Waiver Programme.  Failure to hold this type of passport will result in the customer being refused entry.  The application requires basic biographical and travel information to be entered. Passengers will also need to fill out a green I-94W form upon arrival in the U.S.
If you are in possession of a passport of an eligible country and you plan to travel to the United States you must have ESTA approval  and present proof of same to LIAT at the time of check-in. Failure to comply will result in check-in being denied. A printed copy of the ESTA approval will meet the LIAT requirement.

Nationals of Visa Waiver Program countries will still be eligible to travel without a visa but will have to obtain an approved ESTA prior to travel to the United StatesFollowing is the list of countries which participate in the Visa Waiver Program:



Andorra Germany Malta Spain
Australia Greece Monaco Sweden
Austria Hungary Netherlands Switzerland
Belgium Iceland New Zealand Taiwan
Brunei Ireland Norway United Kingdom
Chile Italy Portugal  
Czech Republic Japan San Marino  
Denmark Latvia Singapore  
Estonia Liechtenstein Slovakia  
Finland Lithuania Slovenia  
France Luxembourg South Korea  

Applications may be submitted at any time prior to travel however the Department of Homeland Security recommends that travel authorization applications be submitted at least 72 hours prior to travel. Unless revoked, travel authorizations are valid for two years from the date of authorization, or until your passport expires, whichever comes first.
