Entry and Residence
All visitors must have valid passports and a return or ongoing ticket.

Travelers must pay a departure tax.
The ownership of land by foreigners is governed by the Aliens Holding Ordinance. All foreign nationals wishing to acquire land in the state must obtain a license from the Government. License applications fall into two categories: those involving an acre of land or less; and those involving more than one acre of land. For an acre of land, the application must contain an approved plan for development and an execution of conveyance; conveyancing must be completed within 6 months. For more than one acre of land, you must provide a development plan for the entire area; physical and architectural aspects; details of financing; and the labour force to be employed.
