What are the Requirements for a Friends Visit?

To visit your friend’s island or wait for someone else to visit, you must wait for a day after creating your island. When you arrive on an island, don’t be surprised if the airport is closed as on the first day, the airport is inaccessible.

To use the Airport for business purposes, you have to visit different islands and welcome visitors visiting your Island. But for both purposes, you require a Nintendo Switch Online subscription plan.

But, you need to make sure that the visitors will not necessarily need to visit from the Nintendo Online Switch Friends list, but you can also get them via a Dodo Code.

Dodo Codes benefits by giving greater control to the island’s visitors; however, it does increase the chance of meeting suspicious people. 


Moreover, the Animal Crossing community allows the players to allow strangers to visit, but they have reported that their islands have been destroyed.

But, you must not forget that good crowds exist equally to bad crowds. Therefore, you need to ensure that you have been invited and enjoyed your title as Best Friend on your island.
