After some discussions, I found out that Caribbean Hindustani is quite popular in Suriname. This has inclined me to choose it as one of the next destinations on my bucket list.

How can I get a tourist visa for Suriname as an Indian citizen?

In my discussions, I have heard that it allows visa on arrival. Is this the case or a visa prior to arrival is required? If yes, can I get it from an Embassy/Consulate in the United States?

According to Suriname Embassy in the United States there is still visa required for Indian Citizens, though it will be less expensive then for the US citizens.

As far as I can tell Visa On arrival is available for business purposes only with no further details an restrictions on countries have been made available:

  1. VISA AT ARRIVAL: THIS VISA IS FOR BUSINESS ONLY. THE APPLICATION AND FEES ARE DONE IN SURINAME

There is a Tourist Card which one can purchase at Johan Adolf Pengel airport / Zanderij / Suriname but again it's not available for Indian Citizens. So as you indicated in another one of your questions: more visas for you.

  • More visas for me. Hmm. :( – Aditya Somani Jul 31 '14 at 1:17
  • Update: link of scgmia.com has expired, and there is mention that the visa office at the airport might be closed as of August 2019. I got my visa at VFS Global which is the official partner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. – pritaeas Sep 2 '19 at 12:03
  • Been there in September 2019 and the VISA office at the airport was still open. – pritaeas Oct 14 '19 at 12:55

    Can you add a source for that? The @Karlson answer does not confirm it, nor do the details provided by the Suriname Embassy in Delhi surinameembassy.in/visa.html – Giorgio Sep 5 '16 at 13:30
