Visa requirements for Canadians

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports can purchase a visa upon arrival (VOA) in the country at the first airport or land border crossing point. There is no application process.

Visa requirements for Foreigners

As the embassy or high commission of this country accredited to Canada is physically located inside the USA, you must apply for this visa at the embassy or high commission or consulate located in the USA. These are usually in Washington DC (embassies and high commissions), or in New York City (consulates)


Canadian citizens using Canadian passports require a visa-on-arrival (VOA) to remain in Palau for short tourism or business stays. This visa is issued upon arrival at the international airport. Palau maintains an open door policy to visitors, and does not require any pre-arranged visa for a stay up to thirty (30) days. This does not apply to persons holding Canadian "Travel Documents" (1951 convention refugees). Extended Stays (over thirty days) are authorized by Chief of Immigration upon payment of the visa extension fee of approximately US$100.
