Barbados has eased its entry rules for fully vaccinated visitors, with the changes coming into force on Sunday (October 24).
Fully vaccinated travellers with a negative Covid-19 PCR test result will no longer be required to take a second Covid-19 PCR test on arrival in Barbados or observe a quarantine period.
Health officials at the island’s international gateway, Grantley Adams International Airport, may select fully vaccinated travellers at random for a rapid antigen arrival test on entry.
In this case, these travellers must take the rapid arrival test at the airport free of charge; await the results; and depart the airport using only approved transportation.
Unvaccinated travellers will still need to show a negative Covid-19 test result, taken no more than three days before arrival; depart the airport using only approved transportation; quarantine for five days at approved accommodation; and, after quarantine, take a mandatory second Covid-19 PCR test at one of the approved labs or testing hotels across the island at a cost to the traveller.
They must continue to quarantine until the results of the second Covid-19 PCR test are received.
