Entry Requirements - Visas
Guadeloupe is an Overseas Department of France (départements d’outre-mer). If you are a British Citizen or British Subject with Right of Abode in the United Kingdom, you will not need a visa to enter Guadeloupe. Other British passport holders should confirm the current entry requirements with the nearest French Diplomatic mission. All British passport holders require a valid passport. There is no minimum passport validity requirement but you should ensure that your passport is valid for the proposed period of your stay.
Entry Requirements - Travelling with children
Single parents or other adults travelling alone with children should be aware that some countries require documentary evidence of parental responsibility before allowing lone parents to enter the country or, in some cases, before permitting the children to leave the country. For further information on exactly what will be required at immigration please contact the French Embassy in London.
