Grenada Travel Requirements




Currency Exchange
The local currency is the East Caribbean Dollar (EC$) which is pegged to the US$. It is advisable to change your currency or travelers cheques at the banks as the exchange rates at shops and restaurants are not favorable.

Credit cards & Travelers cheques
Major credit cards are accepted by some hotels but not generally by car rental companies and shops. Travelers cheques are accepted everywhere.

Tipping
A 10% service charge is added by most hotels and restaurants. If no service charge is added 10% of the bill is suggested as a gratuity. Additional gratuities are at your discretion.

Driving
To obtain a local permit, a bona fide driving licence costing E$30 must be presented at the local traffic department, located next to the Fire Station on The Carenage, St. George's. Most of the car rental firms also issue local permits. Traffic drives on the left.

Passports and Visas
All visitors to Grenada require a valid passport, except for US and Canadian nationals who hold a naturalisation card and photo ID, alien registration card, birth certificate or affidavit of birth.

Visas are not required if the visitor is staying less than 14 days and has a ticket to the next destination.

Visas are also not required by citizens of the following countries: United Kingdom, European Union countries, USA, Japan, all British Commonwealth countries except Cyprus and Pakistan, Bulgaria, Chile, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Iceland, Israel, South Korea, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Poland, Taiwan and Venezuela. Grenada does not have diplomatic representation is most countries as it only has diplomatic missions in the US, UK, Canada and Venezuela. Since the country is a Commonwealth nation, you can make your visa enquiries at your local British High Commission.

Clothing
Casual, light cottons are ideal during the day; in the evenings, semi-formal attire is appropriate. Bathing suits or mini shorts should not be worn in the streets or stores.
