UK Visa waiver review for East Caribbean countries completed

Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly.

The UK Border Agency completed a global review of UK Visa requirements for visitors coming to the country last year.

UK Visa

Visiting nationals from St Lucia and Dominica will be able to travel UK Visa free.

As a result of the review, the government considered introducing UK Visa regimes for two countries in the eastern Caribbean - St Lucia and Dominica.
 
However, yesterday a joint Written Ministerial Statement signed by the Home Secretary and the Foreign Secretary, was laid in Parliament stating that a visa regime would not be introduced to St Lucia and Dominica.

Dominica and St Lucia have made concrete improvements to the immigration, border control and identity systems which would not have happened without the UK review. In recognition of the progress made, visitors from Dominica and St Lucia will therefore continue to be able to travel to the UK without the need for a visa.
