Contributed By RealAdventures Support

U.S. citizens may enter Grenada with proof of U.S. citizenship, (a certified birth certificate, a Naturalization/Citizenship Certificate, or a valid or expired passport) and photo identification. U.S. citizen visitors who enter Grenada without one or more of these documents, even if admitted by local immigration officials, may encounter difficulties in boarding flights to return to the U.S. No visa is required for a stay of up to three months. There is an airport departure charge for adults and for children between the ages of five and thirteen years of age. For additional information concerning entry/exit requirements, travelers may contact the Embassy of Grenada, 1701 New Hampshire Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20009, telephone (202) 265-2561, e-mail grenada@oas.org, or the Consulate of Grenada in New York at telephone (212) 599-0301.

Street crime occurs occasionally in Grenada. Tourists have been victims of armed robbery in isolated areas, and thieves frequently steal U.S. passports, alien registration cards, and money. Muggings, purse-snatchings and other robberies may occur in areas near hotels, beaches and restaurants, particularly after dark. Visitors should exercise appropriate caution when walking after dark, or rely on taxis. Valuables left unattended on beaches are subject to theft. Visitors may wish to consult with local authorities, their hotels and/or the U.S. Embassy for current information.

The loss or theft of a U.S. passport should be reported immediately to the local police and the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. U.S. citizens may refer to the Department of State's pamphlets, A Safe Trip Abroad and Tips for Travelers to The Caribbean, for ways to promote a more trouble-free journey. The pamphlets are available by mail from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402, via the Internet at http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs, or via the Bureau of Consular Affairs home page at http://travel.state.gov.

Medical care is limited. U.S. citizens requiring medical treatment may call the U.S. Embassy in St. George's for a list of local doctors, dentists, pharmacies and hospitals. Serious medical problems requiring hospitalization and/or medical evacuation to the U.S. can cost thousands of dollars or more. Doctors and hospitals often expect immediate cash payment for health services. Pharmacies are well stocked, and prescription medicine is available, but travelers are advised to bring with them sufficient prescription medicine for their length of stay.

Information on vaccinations and other health precautions may be obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's hotline for international travelers at 1-877-FYI-TRIP (1-877-394-8747); fax 1-888-CDC-FAXX (1-888-232-3299), or via CDC's Internet site at http://www.cdc.gov.

TRAFFIC SAFETY AND ROAD CONDITIONS: While in a foreign country, U.S. citizens may encounter road conditions that differ significantly from those in the U.S. The information below concerning Grenada is provided for general reference only, and may not be totally accurate in a particular location or circumstance.

Safety of Public Transportation: Good
Urban Road Conditions/Maintenance: Fair
Rural Road Conditions/Maintenance: Fair
Availability of Roadside Assistance: Good

Traffic moves on the left in Grenada; therefore, the majority of vehicles are right-hand drive. Grenada's system of paved and unpaved roads (approx. 575 miles) consists of mostly narrow, winding roads. Road surfaces often deteriorate, particularly in the rainy season (June-November) before maintenance work begins. Grenada's road conditions, increasing numbers of vehicles, and sometimes-undisciplined minibus drivers (who provide public and for-hire transport) all oblige caution and reduced speed for safety. For specific information concerning Grenada driver's permits, vehicle inspection, road tax and mandatory insurance, please contact the Grenada Tourism Board in New York at telephone 1-800-927-9554.

It is difficult to cash personal U.S. checks in Grenada, and, if accepted, these will take approximately six weeks to clear by a local bank. Major credit cards are widely accepted, and ATM facilities are available at most banks.

DISASTER PREPAREDNESS: Grenada has experienced tropical storms during the hurricane season, from June through November. General information about natural disaster preparedness is available via the Internet from the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at http://www.fema.gov/.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has assessed the government of Grenada's civil aviation authority as Category 2 -- not in compliance with international aviation safety standards for the oversight of Grenada's air carrier operations. While consultations to correct the deficiencies are ongoing, any of Grenada's air carriers with existing routes to the U.S. will be permitted to conduct limited operations to the U.S. subject to heightened FAA surveillance. No additional flights or new service to the U.S. by Grenada's air carriers will be permitted unless they arrange to have the flights conducted by an air carrier from a country meeting international safety standards.

For further information, travelers may contact the Department of Transportation within the U.S. at 1-800-322-7873, or visit the FAA's Internet web site at http://www.faa.gov/avr/iasa/iasa.pdf. The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) separately assesses some foreign air carriers for suitability as official providers of air services. For information regarding the DOD policy on specific carriers, travelers may contact the DOD at telephone (618) 229-4801.
