Suriname Visa – How To Apply For A Surinamese Visa

Is Suriname your next destination? You will need to obtain a Suriname visa in order to travel to Suriname for tourism, business, and official purposes. Suriname also offers a tourist card, which can be obtained at the port of entry in Suriname. This tourist card will allow United States citizens (1) entry into Suriname for tourism purposes. Also, you will need to make sure that you have a passport that is valid and up to date. Your passport should have at least 6 months validity left on it after you depart Suriname, as well as a minimum of (2) blank visa pages to accommodate for visa stamps while traveling.

Suriname Visa Requirements

For a tourist visa, your documents should include a Suriname visa application form, (1) accepted passport photograph, and a program or itinerary of your trip. Also, a notarized letter of consent and a birth certificate will be necessary for minors.

Everything needed for a tourist visa will also be needed for a business letter with one more addition. You will have to provide a Business Letter that entails an introduction of the applicant, the type of business that will take place, the type of visa and desired validity length, and proof of sufficient funds for the entirety of your stay. The business letter should be on the letterhead of the company you are employed with.

For an official visa, you will have to provide everything needed for a tourist visa with the addition of a State Department Letter. The letter should be addressed to the “Embassy of Suriname, Washington, D.C.” and should detail the purpose of the trip, travel dates, and passport number.
