Lightening of the conditions of entry in overseas: the conclusion of the foundations of tourism provides concrete solutions and deliverable for the development of the sector overseas
 
George Pau-Langevin welcomes the announcement by Laurent Fabius and Fleur Pellerin, at the closure of the foundations of tourism, measures relating to the relaxation of the conditions of entry of foreign citizens in different territories and overseas.  
 
Targeted, these measures will contribute to the development of tourism and overseas. Lever for growth and employment of the overseas territories, tourism is also a powerful factor of integration and trade in the regional space.  
 
In Reunion Island, Indian and Chinese citizens whose stay, lasting less than 15 days, is organised by a recognised travel agency, will be exempted from visa.  
 
 
It will be the same, in Martinique, Guadeloupe and in Guyana, Ecuadorian and Peruvian citizens wishing to visit these departments (as is already the case for the Chilean and Argentine citizens).
 
In French Polynesia, Chinese citizens travelling in a group or individually, for a duration of less than 15 days, through an approved travel agency, will be also exempted from this formality.
 
Finally, citizens of Anguilla wishing to travel to Saint-Martin will also benefit from this exemption of visa short of stay.
 
These measures, which will come into force upon publication of the amending interdepartmental orders, fit into the continuity of operative « visas Îles Vanille » implemented in February 2013, allowing South African citizens to attend Reunion Island without condition of visa and Chinese, Indian as well as Russian citizens staying in Mauritius or the Seychelles to benefit in Reunion, of an issuance of visas at the border for free. The Minister of overseas welcomes the culmination of the work of consultation between the Government and the elected representatives and overseas parliamentarians that implemented these measures.  
 
They testify to the capacity demonstrated all the actors concerned to gather to carry set of solutions contributing to the dynamism and development of overseas.
