VISA REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRY INTO PUERTO RICO BY COUNTRY
United States Citizens
United States citizens do not require a visa for Puerto Rico, but must have a form of official government issued picture identification to enter Puerto Rico such as a passport, current driver’s license or a photo-identification card issued to non-drivers by a state’s motor vehicles department.
Citizens of other countries have the same requirements as for entering the United States. For a complete list of countries whose citizens require a visa for travel to Puerto Rico, as well as visa application information, please visit the US Embassy website.
