A US territory in the Pacific Ocean, Guam is the largest island in the Mariana Archipelago. Even though it is an active US military base, as far as tourism goes, it's just like any other island in the Pacific: Guam welcomes tourists as a tropical paradise. Relax on Gun Beach, take a dip in the ocean, or go explore the island. One appealing aspect of Guam is the night markets - plenty of tourists visit them, but be aware that restaurants and shops charge more when the tourists show up. Be sure not to miss the barbecue as the people of Guam are very proud of their grilling skills.
Before you pack your bags for Guam, you need to check and see if you need a visa. However, just because Guam is US territory does not mean that it follows the same visa policy. In fact, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa all have separate policies. Citizens of countries that are visa exempt, as well as nationals of states in the visa waiver program are retained from the US protocol, but Guam has an additional visa waiver program that allows eligible nationalities to travel for up to 45 days without obtaining a visa or an ESTA. All the other nationalities who are not visa exempt or in the visa waiver program must apply for a visa at the nearest US embassy.
It should be mentioned that all travelers who arrive in Guam without obtaining a visa must complete an I-736 form for each trip. This can be done online.
If you want to find out whether or not you need a visa, you should use our Visa Checker Tool located in the top right corner. Simply fill in the boxes: select your nationality from the drag-down menu on the left, and on the right, choose Guam as your destination. The result will tell you if you need a visa or not. If you do, we provide some useful information such as a list of the nearest embassies where you can apply. While iVisa cannot help you get your visa for Guam, we still like helping travelers, which is why you can call our free 24/7 support service.
As far as the specific requirements go, make sure to do some research before heading to the embassy. You can find a lot of info online, but we advise you to use it as a reference only. The stuff you find online is not always the most reliable or up-to-date and US territory visa policies can get a bit confusing. Consequently, we recommend that you call the diplomatic mission of the United States and ask your questions there. What iVisa can tell you is that travelers who take a trip to Guam need to have a passport that does not expire for at least 6 months beyond the date of arrival.
We regretfully are unable to process requests for Guam visas at the moment, but as soon as that changes, we will be able to help you with a hassle-free visa application process. Until then, we hope that the above information is helpful.
