Travel Documents

Each passenger is solely responsible for obtaining and carrying the correct travel documentation for the countries to be visited which includes a valid passport, visa if applicable, sufficient funds to cover the length of stay, medical information if applicable, etc.

Always make sure that the way your name appears on your Air Tahiti Nui airline ticket matches your passport. It is also advisable that other documentation you carry matches your passport name and that you identify yourself by the nationality of your passport.

Always make sure your passport is valid for the required time beyond your travel dates. Some countries require a passport to be valid for six months beyond the date of departure.

As Travel Documents required for entry are subject to modification without notice, it is advisable to check with the consulate of each country on your itinerary or consult with your travel arranger before departure. Each passenger is solely responsible for understanding and possessing the correct documents for legally traveling to the countries serviced by Air Tahiti Nui.
