International arrivals to an islandother than Tahiti

It is perfectly possible to arrange an international arrival to an island other than Tahiti.

Air Tahiti's FBO service will get for you all the necessary applications with the French Polynesian Civil Aviation Department, the Office of the French High Commissioner, and the immigration and customs services.

For that purpose, please provide us with the following:
  • Your exact itinerary, including date and time of arrival
  • A copy of all passports (crew and passengers)

All administrative procedures must be carried out at least 21 days before arrival.

Once permission has been obtained from the Office of the High Commissioner, the routing and the date and time of arrival cannot be changed.
