The official language of Pitcairn is English, which is also the language used in government, education, and everyday life.

Pitcairn does not have its own currency, and the US dollar is widely used on the island for transactions. However, the Pitcairn Islands government also issues its own collectible coins and banknotes for sale to collectors and tourists.

There is no airport on Pitcairn, and the island can only be reached by boat. The nearest international airport is on Tahiti, which is around 4,800 kilometers away. A journey from the UK to Tahiti can take around 20-24 hours with one or more stopovers.
