Before you travel, check the ‘Entry requirements’ section for Suriname’s current entry restrictions and requirements. These may change with little warning. Monitor this advice for the latest updates and stay in contact with your travel provider.
If you plan to pass through another country to return to the UK, check the travel advice for the country you’re transiting.
If you are visiting Suriname you will need an e-visa or e-tourist card. See Visas
It is more important than ever to get travel insurance and check it provides appropriate cover. See the FCDO’s guidance on foreign travel insurance.
Most visits are trouble-free, but burglary, armed robbery and violent crime occur in Paramaribo and in outlying areas. See Crime
Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in Suriname, attacks can’t be ruled out. See Terrorism
Consular support may be limited in Suriname as there is no British Embassy office. However, the British High Commission in Georgetown, Guyana , can provide consular support.
