Niue Travel Guide

Visas and Officialdom

Though you'll need a passport and onward ticket, no visa is required for a stay of up to 30 days. Extensions of stay up to three months are available. Resident expatriates who run afoul of government ministers are expelled from Niue with little ado. In a small community like Niue's, one has to take care not to step on the wrong toes.

Public Holidays

Prayer Week and Takai Week are both held during the first week of January. The main event of the year is the Constitution Celebrations, which last three days around October 19. There are traditional dancing and singing, parades, sports, and a display of produce and handicrafts at the high school grounds two km inland from Alofi. A highlight is the exciting outrigger canoe race off Alofi wharf. Peniamina Day falls on the Monday during the Constitution Celebrations.
