Micronesian passport holders with Form I-94 or Form I-94A, showing non-immigrant admission, can travel or enter the United States of America without any visa requirements in accordance with the Compact of Free Association between the United States and the Federated States of Micronesia.[2][3][4]

History

Prior to the independence of the Federated States of Micronesia, Micronesians traveled internationally on documents issued by the US authorities to the citizens of the Trust Territory of the Pacific. Since October 1959, these documents were called Trust Territory Passports, and had maroon covers. They replaced earlier "Travel Documents", which were simply folded sheets of paper.[5]
