What else to know before traveling to Saint Helena

Saint Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha are a group of islands located in the South Atlantic, part of the British Overseas Territories.

The island of St Helena is so remote that air travel only became possible in 2017, opening up this relatively unknown destination to tourism. You can reach Saint Helena by a 6-hour flight from Johannesburg, South Africa or on the selected cruise or cargo ships.

Despite the dramatic coastlines, further inland you'll find rolling hills, jagged volcanic mountains, and leafy coffee plantations. It is said that the coffee from Saint Helena is among the world's best (as well as the most expensive). Apparently, Napoleon was a fan who spent the final years of his exile here. Plenty to explore!

iVisa tries to minimize the risk of rejection by reviewing your documents and assisting you during the entire application process. However, if the Saint Helena government authorities reject or cancel your application, you will be fully refunded for the iVisa processing fee. Please note that we do not refund government fees.

You may consider re-applying for the Saint Helena e-Visa depending on the reasons for your visa rejection.

No, provided you meet the entry requirements. All visitors must have a valid passport, funds to finance the travel costs, return tickets, and a plausible reason for the trip. Plus, you should not pose a threat to security in the country.
You can apply from anywhere if you have an internet connection. It takes only a few minutes to fill out the visa application and you receive the visa in your email, so there’s no need to visit an embassy.
A criminal record does not necessarily lead to a visa rejection. However, one of the entry requirements is not to pose a threat to security or public order. So, it will depend on your criminal history. You should consult the embassy for more details before applying.
At iVisa, we understand that your time is valuable, and we strive to provide you with the fastest service possible. Our processing times are estimated based on the average duration it takes governments to process visa applications. These estimated times begin from the moment we receive all the correct information for your application until you receive your visa. While we work diligently to expedite the process, it’s important to note that we are reliant on the processing times set by the government authorities.
