COVID-19 Information

Eastern Caribbean COVID-19 Status 

Due to the increasing number of cases of COVID-19 in the Eastern Caribbean, many countries have strengthened measures to combat the further spread of the virus. We urge American Citizens to adhere to the country’s laws, regulations and health protocols in effect.

Countries in the Eastern Caribbean have put into place travel restrictions and other health-related measures to include mandatory health screening. Many countries require advance COVID testing with valid negative test results prior to arrival, testing upon arrival and retesting after a certain number of days. Arriving travelers may also be subject to mandatory quarantine and/or monitoring which may be restricted to a government designated facility or an officially approved accommodation only.

*** Effective January 26, all airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within three calendar days of travel. Alternatively, travelers to the U.S. may provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel. Check the CDC website for additional information and Frequently Asked Questions.
