Saint Lucia eases restrictions for vaccinated tourists

Wednesday, 01 Jun, 2021 0

Saint Lucia has eased restrictions, allowing fully vaccinated travellers to enjoy more tourism activities.

Vaccinated visitors can now book car rentals, dine at more local restaurants, and take part in more activities such as beach hopping.

They now have increased access to all parts of Saint Lucia from the day of arrival without restrictions.

Quarantine has also been removed for vaccinated returning nationals.

“For both visitors and our local residents, our commitment to safely and responsibly coexisting with Covid remains strong,” said Prime Minister Allen Chastanet.

“While all visitors to Saint Lucia can currently experience a wonderful vacation as well as approved tours and attractions, fully vaccinated travellers are now invited to explore the entire destination at their leisure, while following our protocols.”

Travelers indicate that they are fully vaccinated when filling out the pre-arrival Travel Authorisation form, and upload proof of vaccination.

Visitors must travel with their vaccination card or official documentation.

Upon arrival in Saint Lucia, pre-registered fully vaccinated visitors will be expedited via a dedicated Health Screening line and will be provided with a non-electronic identification wristband for the duration of their stay.

This wristband must be worn throughout the stay and removed when departing Saint Lucia.

Non-vaccinated travellers will continue to be permitted to stay at up to two certified properties for the first 14 days.

All arrivals must present a negative Covid-19 PCR test result taken no more than five days before arrival; submitted via the online Travel Registration form.

Since reopening in July 2020, the country has welcomed about 80,000 international visitors.
