Barbados curfew restrictions lifted

Barbados has lifted its latest curfew, meaning there are no such restrictions in the Caribbean destination for the first time since December 2020.

The UK Foreign Office (FCDO) updated its travel advice to reflect the change, which comes into effect today (Monday, February 14).

The most recent curfew restricted movements between 12am and 5am daily.

The Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) said: “Our direct tourism services members, in particular the catamarans, nightclubs and tour companies, are delighted to be able to return to full capacity. The restaurants have also signalled that they are extremely happy.

“This will have an immediate positive impact on service delivery as they will not have to rush patrons and can manage capacity in a way that allows them to be more viable. Critically, it will also improve the ability of their staff to get home without the stressor of the curfew.”

Fully vaccinated arrivals in Barbados are required to present a negative Covid-19. This can be an RT-PCR test taken within three days of arrival or a rapid PCR test taken within 24 hours.

Non-vaccinated arrivals must take a test, and take a further test after five days’ quarantine. If you test positive for COVID-19 at any point during your stay in Barbados you will be required to self-isolate.

The UK’s NHS Covid Pass is an accepted form of proof of vaccination.

All passengers are also required to submit an embarkation/disembarkation card.
