Travel Documentation and Health Advisory

PLEASE NOTE: In order to travel abroad, a valid passport is required for all U.S. and Canadian citizens. Most countries require that passports be valid for at least (6) months beyond the date of your return to the U.S. or Canada. Passports must have sufficient empty pages for visas that are required during the cruise. World Cruise travelers are recommended to have six (6) empty pages. Please obtain or renew your passports early. For more information on obtaining or renewing a U.S. passport, visit the State Departments web site at: Travel.State.Gov

These are the visa requirements for U.S. and Canadian passport holders who reside in the United States only. Guests holding on non-U.S. passports should check with their local country's consulates or Visa Central for their individual requirements. Entry requirements are subject to change at any time without advance notice from various governments. Please review the information to determine which countries require a visa and how those visas may be obtained. If you are a U.S. or Canadian passport holder residing in the U.S. and an independent visa is required, guests may download and print visa applications for any upcoming Regent Seven Seas cruise on Visa Central's website.

Log on to Visa Central: and if doesn't automatically populate with the Regent Seven Seas Cruise account then enter 75010 in the upper right-hand corner where it says "Account #/Log-In Code" and then click Sign In, this will take you to the Regent homepage.

It is the responsibility of each guest to obtain the proper Visas, Passports and Inoculations for their cruise. Keene Luxury Travel and Regent Seven Seas cruises will provide information only, but be aware that individual countries have been known to change regulations without notice.

Immunizations and health requirements vary by country. As these may also change without notice, we suggest you consult with your physician or local health department or visit the travel section of the website for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention for the latest information.

Please remember it is extremely important to secure your visa prior to arrival for embarkation. Guests who deviate their embarkation or disembarkation port from the scheduled itinerary should research the foreign entry requirements for that country. Regrettably, Regent Seven Seas Cruises will, due to government regulations, have to deny boarding to any guest who fails to have the appropriate visas, inoculations and travel documentation.
