Guyana: Changes to Visitor Visas on Arrival

Key Points 

  • Guyana will no longer allow foreign nationals to submit a Visitor Visa on Arrival application at a Guyana airport   


The government of Guyana changed its Visitor Visas on Arrival (VVOA) policy. Foreign nationals can no longer apply for and obtain a VVOA at the airport. Instead, foreign nationals must secure VVOA approval from the Ministry of Home Affairs before traveling to Guyana.
