There is very little info for non-US citizens out there.....
This is for a person who is a citizen of Belize.
Netherlands embassy says: no visa required for Belizeans on Dutch side for less than 30 day stay, & no visa required for cruise ship passengers staying for less than 24 hours.
French embassy says:visa required for French side for short stay, but doesn't say anything about cruiseship passengers.
Royal Caribbean says: find out for yourself (although they have to know because they are the ones that decide if you can get on the ship if your paperwork is correct)
St. Martin tourism board: out of office till June 1
I just want to know if the ship is docking in Philipsburg, which is on the Netherland side, then do I need to go by what the Netherlands embassy says? But, if there is no "real" border between the two sides, how can they require a visa for only 1 side? It's very confusing.....and I can't seem to get a straight answer.
