Are you interested in the lifestyle on a small remote island, with a comfortable climate, and rich in natural resources including abundant marine life?

Pitcairn is a British Overseas Territory and is currently in receipt of budgetary aid. The population has been at a relatively static, but low level, of 50 locals since the mid-1980s, but it is an aging population hence the need for new immigrants.

During 2013 Pitcairn is going through infrastructural developments. This may provide employment opportunities. Pitcairn also welcomes immigrants who are self-supporting.

If you are interested in emigrating to Pitcairn, either for a short, long term or permanent stay, please send an email to immigration@pitcairn.gov.pn

We will then be happy to send further information with a view to taking your application forward.

who we are
In December 2010 the Government of Pitcairn Islands established its Tourism Department. Previously Pitcairn's tourism initiatives were managed by a voluntary group known as the Pitcairn Island Tourism Board. Informed by the World Tourism Organization's principles of Sustainable Island Heritage Tourism, the Tourism Board, in existence for some 5 years, laid the cornerstones for the continued growth of the industry and the new department.

what we do
The principles of sustainable island heritage tourism refer to the environmental, economic and social-cultural aspects of tourism development, no matter where in the world it occurs. Establishing a balance between these 3 aspects is necessary to ensuring that Pitcairn's Tourism industry is built for long term sustainability. The Government of Pitcairn Islands is committed to making optimal use of the islands' environmental resources whilst conserving its natural heritage, unique biodiversity and the socio-cultural authenticity of the Legendary Pitcairn Island community.
