Corporate Overview

The Kiribati National Tourism Office

The Kiribati National Tourism Office (KNTO) is responsible for working with our partners to encourage travellers to come to Kiribati and spend time exploring our country. We are guided by the principles of sustainability, economic development and cultural preservation and expression. We would like to see our industry as vibrant as the blues, greens and whites that reflect the beauty of our country.

Kiribati is not a holiday destination for everyone. The serious and committed traveller or fisherman will be rewarded for their visit with the experience of welcoming and wonderful people, extraordinary numbers of fish and the challenge of catching them, and lifestyle that is as far away from your everyday as you can get. Tourists who are looking for swim up bars, cocktail lounges and fluffy towels need not apply.

The Kiribati National Tourism Office undertakes the following activities:

  • Partnerships with tourism operators
  • Promotional activities and trade shows
  • Product development
  • Website and collateral development
  • Media development and communication
