Saint Lucia Introduces New Digital Entry Process
From 1 March, Saint Lucia will switch to an Electronic Entry Form for arrivals by air. The new process is expected to substantially improve processing times for arriving passengers.
All travellers arriving by air are strongly encouraged to complete the form online prior to arrival to avoid delays on arrival. The online form can be completed wherever the internet is available prior to landing in Saint Lucia, including on board flights that offer internet services. Once they have landed, travellers will be required to show their receipt to the immigration and customs officers.
The process is as follows:
- Visit https://www.stlucia.org/en_UK/entry/
- Complete and submit the form
- Receive a QR code by email
- Present the QR code (on a device such as a phone, laptop, tablet etc. or a printed copy) and travel document (passport) to officials on arrival.
In the first instance, passengers landing in Saint Lucia who have not completed the form will be required to complete and submit the paper form, however this arrangement will be phased out within six weeks of the electronic form going into operation.
March 1 to April 11, 2023
Passengers who have not submitted the form by the time that they land in Saint Lucia will be required to complete and submit the paper version of the form.
April 12, 2023 onwards
The paper form will no longer be available to passengers arriving by air, all passengers will be required to complete and submit an electronic entry form before presenting themselves to immigration and customs officials.
