COVID-19 Entry Requirements for Bora Bora and the Islands of Tahiti
NEW French Polynesia Entry Protocols (updated as of August 5, 2022)
Please Note: As of August 5, 2022, the government of French Polynesia announced a Complete Easing of COVID Entry Conditions for Tahiti and her Islands.
For Travelers from the United States, here are the highlights:
Travelers are no longer required to complete any health forms prior to arrival.
Travelers will no longer need to provide vaccination status information or documentation (vaccination is not required). Venture Tahiti still encourages all clients to travel with any documentation recommended by their own state and local authorities, if applicable.
COVID-19 testing is no longer required, regardless of vaccination status.
For Non-US Travelers with a Stopover or Transit in the United States:
All travelers with a transit or stopover in the United States should refer to Tahiti Tourisme for current requirements and must still comply with all US entry requirements.
Please don't hesitate to contact us or set up an Advisory Session with one of our Certified Tahiti Specialists, if you would like more guidance from our experts. We are always happy to help.
The information above is a summary of the current entry requirements when visiting French Polynesia. It has been compiled by our Venture Tahiti Specialists as a courtesy to clients and travelers and is accurate as of the date above. As this is summary data as of a specific date and time, and guidance has been changing frequently, it should not be relied on or treated as a substitute for specific advice, regulations or guidance provided by Tahiti Tourisme or the Government of French Polynesia.
We are often asked about the cost of food in Bora Bora and Tahiti. Food tends to be a bit expensive in French Polynesia. It is on par with dining out in New York, Los Angeles or Honolulu. If you are trying to stick to a preferred travel budget, regardless of how much you plan to spend, the cost of dining in French Polynesia should be considered in your travel and vacation planning.
Which islands to visit and how many islands you should visit depends a lot on how long you plan to stay in French Polynesia.We typically advise clients to spend at least 3 nights on each island in their itinerary (except possibly the Island of Tahiti). Spending less than 3 nights tends to make travelers feel too rushed. After all, you are going there to at least try to relax.
The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is absolutely incredible. There are no words to describe the beauty of Tahiti and the staff there was wonderful. I cannot thank Venture Tahiti enough for helping us book the most incredible experience of our lives!! We plan on bringing our children there very soon!
The spa is beautiful, we had a great couples massage! ...the excursions are amazing & the best snorkeling channel around! It's worth every penny you spend and an experience of a lifetime! The sunsets are the best you will ever see! We used VENTURE TAHITI in Boca Raton, Florida to book our trip and it went off without a hitch. They did an excellent job and I highly recommend them!
I wanted to say thanks for helping us set up an amazing trip. We are home safe & sound! Everything was wonderful-- I am so happy you recommended the Shark & Ray tour on Bora Bora-- it was by far our favorite thing that we did! We ended up relaxing on Taha'a as it was the most perfect place to unwind and get massages. All of the hotels were awesome-- Le Taha'a Resort and The Conrad were our favorites! We absolutely loved our beach bungalow (it was huge!!)
