Important flight information:
To visit the island, you will need to apply for permission, in the form of an entry permit (see below). And you must have comprehensive travel and medical insurance.
Unless you are in an exempt category (e.g., active members of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces , USAF military contract personnel etc) and you wish to travel to Ascension for any purpose you must obtain a valid Entry Permit in advance and produce this to the Immigration Officer on arrival. Failure to do so is an offence under the Entry Control (Ascension) Ordinance and may result in a fine, and/or imprisonment. You may also be refused permission to land and be required to leave on the aircraft or vessel that you arrived on.
It is also a condition of the Entry Permit that you have obtained adequate travel and medical insurance to cover your stay including the possibility of air evacuation, which can be very expensive. You should be prepared to show this to the Immigration Officer on arrival.
Applications for Entry Permits should be made well in advance, preferably at least 28 days before your intended travel, except in case of genuine emergency. Note that flight bookings need to be confirmed before the 14 day cut-off point before a flight. This is a Ministry of Defence requirement. Bookings cannot be confirmed until you have been issued with an Entry Permit. It is therefore important that you do not leave it until close to the 14 day cut-off point to apply as this risks losing the booking and not being able to travel.
Please note with effect from the 1st October 2011 new Entry Permit Fees and Procedures will be implemented.
