As in most Caribbean countries, nobody should step off the yacht until the skipper has completed all clearance procedures. This includes being cleared in by the appropriate authorities and completing crew lists in advance.
Grenada has recently implemented Sail Clear, a regional recreational yacht clearance system. This has reduced the amount of paperwork required to enter and leave Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Inward and outward clearance forms are now combined into one document.
When clearing out, it is important to have a valid cruising permit, copies of the crew list and passports of all aboard. Crews must also visit Immigration to be “signed off” prior to departure. A new clearance office has opened in Tyrrel Bay, Carriacou. This replaces the facilities in Hillsborough.
Yacht Crew Visas
For superyacht crew members traveling abroad, a yacht crew visa may be required. This type of visa is typically a C1/D visa, which allows crew to enter multiple countries for the purpose of joining or departing a yacht. To obtain a C1/D visa, you must have a contract for employment on a yacht and a letter from the boat owner confirming your employment.

Yacht insurance is important to have as it can protect you against any damage or loss that may occur. It covers your private possessions, the vessel’s transportation equipment, and even offers medical coverage for crew members. It is recommended to work with an experienced yacht broker to help you navigate policies. There are many options available, including deductibles and premiums.
Grenada’s location in the south-east Caribbean makes it susceptible to hurricanes. While it is considered south of the typical hurricane zone, the threat is real. Having an escape plan in place well ahead of time is the best way to avoid a disaster. An experienced yacht broker can assist you in establishing an appropriate hurricane plan. They can also help you with provisioning and emergency supplies.
