While in Palau, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation very different from what you find in the United States. Palau’s overall accessibility for the disabled is very limited. There is no legislation in place that mandates access to transportation, communication, and public building for persons with disabilities. The only existing legislation is access to government buildings, which requires that there be at least one designated parking space close to the main entrance of each national government building open to the public. These parking spaces shall be clearly designated through use of words or symbols, as being available for use only by persons with disabilities. While many buildings have ramps to facilitate persons with disabilities, others do not. There is no public transportation equipped to transport persons on wheelchairs and sidewalks around Palau are limited. There are no free or reduced fares for disabled persons in taxis, or at communication, lodging, medical facilities, restaurants, cafes, bars, or other tourist spots.
