Kiribati has not regulated its beauty industry and permits individuals without proper qualifications to earn. It doesn’t have licenses for various beauticians, so anyone skilled can have clients.

These professionals are also called beauty therapists and usually need a license for practice in other countries. Kiribati, however, doesn’t require any qualifications from practitioners.


Hairstylists can also begin a successful career in the industry without a professional license. They only need to learn and enhance their hair skills, which are necessary for client services.

Nail Technician

High school graduates or individuals with nail certificates are able to practise professionally. The industry is not regulated, and practitioners don’t need a license.
