WHAT TO BRING
Travel Documents and Entry/Departure Requirements:
Citizens of the United States are required to have passports in order to re-enter that country, therefore a valid passport is a required travel document when traveling to the Caribbean. Citizens of Canada need only to present proof of citizenship (either a passport or birth certificate) in order to enter St. Kitts-Nevis. If the birth certificate is used, it must be accompanied by a government issued photo ID (a drivers license, for example) showing the same name.
Additionally, proof of a return ticket might be required. There is a departure tax of about $22 US payable in cash, or by credit card, at the airport.
