Wallis and Futuna

Driving in Wallis and Futuna–

Wallis and Futuna drives on the right.I’m unable to locate any specific information on driving licence requirements for foreign visitors. I would therefore assume that same rules apply as in France and that you can use the photo licence of any country to drive here, providing it’s written in Roman alphabet. Drivers from other countries need their own licence plus an international driving permit.

Wallis and Futuna is an overseas community of France consisting of two small island groupings in Polynesia, near Fiji and Samoa. Wallis and Futuna comprises two archipelagoes:

Hoorn Islands group (also known as the Futuna Islands, and as Îles Horne). The main Island is Futuna-population 5000.

Wallis Islands group (also known as ʻUvea,) The main Island is with a population of 10,000.   Mata-Utu s the capital of Wallis and Futuna, and is on Wallis Island.

Wallis Island has 120km of roads, most of which are paved. Most of the villages are on Wallis’ east coast from Halalo to Vailala, which has a paved road along its length . All the main villages on Futuna can be accessed on paved but rough roads.Driving is generally a laidback affair, with little traffic, though there is a problem with drink driving, especially at weekends. You should expect unlit roads though with the usual hazards of night driving including animals and pedestrians in the road.

Although I try and keep the information in the site updated as much as possible, in a rapidly moving world, situations can change daily. Therefore please use the site as an approximate guide, and in conjunction with other resources in order to form your view on driving conditions, roads, safety etc.
