More Caribbean destinations ease Covid restrictions for visitors

Two more Caribbean destinations have announced an easing of their Covid-19 travel rules, with Grenada to drop all restrictions and Anguilla lifting the need for permission for vaccinated arrivals.

The tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique will remove all Covid restrictions, including entry restrictions for unvaccinated travellers, from April 4.

Travellers will not need tests, proof of vaccination or any forms on arrival.

Dr Shawn Charles, chief medical officer for Grenada’s health ministry, said: “Grenada is at a stage where we can consider the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, even though we are aware that the pandemic is not yet over. We’re delighted to be able to offer all travellers a seamless and easy travel experience and we’re looking forward to welcoming them to our beautiful islands.”

Masks will no longer be mandatory and become an optional choice.

Anguilla’s new entry protocols will come into effect on Friday (April 1).

All fully vaccinated travellers who are 18 years and older will no longer need to apply for permission to enter the island via the travel portal at www.ivisitanguilla.com.

They will still need proof of full vaccination status and a negative Covid-19 test.

Vaccinated adults and minors who have not had a booster dose are subject to testing on arrival, at their own expense and a valid negative pre-arrival test result must be presented. The testing fee is $50.

Unvaccinated visitors under 18 are only permitted if they are accompanied by fully vaccinated travellers.

Unvaccinated visitors who have been granted a medical exemption will be required to apply on the entry portal, test on arrival, quarantine for five days and receive a negative test result to exit quarantine. The fee is $100 per person.
