Suriname is definitely one of the options, offering many attractions for tourists. It is a small territory with tropical rainforest, Dutch colonial history, and great ethnic diversity. It’s a destination for an unforgettable vacation!

But, before packing, you must apply for the Suriname Entry Fee. This is not a Suriname visa or e-Visa, but those with a valid visa are exempt from the fee payment.

It’s classed as an international travel document required to enter Suriname. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs implanted this Entry Fee in July 2022, and since then, everyone who wants to visit Suriname for tourism purposes has to apply before departure.
