Saint Lucia simplifies entry protocols

Friday, 03 Mar, 2022 0

The Government of Saint Lucia is updating its international arrival protocols, creating a simplified experience for travellers.

Starting on Saturday, March 5, 2022 fully vaccinated travellers and in-transit passengers aged 5 and over must have a negative rapid Covid-19 antigen test or a Rapid Covid-19 PCR test taken one day prior to entering Saint Lucia.

Travellers may also provide a negative RT-PCR Covid-19 test taken up to five days prior to arrival.

All unvaccinated travellers must present a negative RT-PCR Covid-19 test, taken up to five days prior to entering Saint Lucia.

All travellers must register their information and upload test results online prior to travel on

On completion, they will receive an automatic ‘ready to go’ email.

The previous two-step approval process is no longer required for boarding.

“These major changes are good news for visitors and returning nationals as it means a simplified process, greater access to testing and a significant reduction in cost. We have been listening to our travel community in the U.S., UK, Caribbean and around the world,” said Chief Executive Officer of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Lorine Charles-St. Jules.

Rapid antigen tests must be administered by a healthcare provider.

Self-administered tests and saliva tests are not accepted.

UK NHS tests are not valid for travel.

Unvaccinated visitors can continue to stay at Covid-certified properties.

Returning nationals who are unvaccinated are required to quarantine for a seven-day period.

As of January 2022, 90% of tourist arrivals to Saint Lucia are fully vaccinated.
