For the first time since December 2020, Barbados has dropped its newest curfew, which means there are no such restrictions in the Caribbean resort.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCDO) in the United Kingdom has amended its travel advice to reflect the change, which takes effect on Monday, 14th February.
Between the hours of 12 a.m. and 5 a.m., the most recent curfew prohibited everyday movement.
According to the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA), “Our direct tourism services members, in particular the catamarans, nightclubs and tour companies, are delighted to be able to return to full capacity. The restaurants have also signalled that they are extremely happy.
“This will have an immediate positive impact on service delivery as they will not have to rush patrons and can manage capacity in a way that allows them to be more viable. Critically, it will also improve the ability of their staff to get home without the stressor of the curfew.”
A negative Covid-19 test is required for all newcomers to Barbados who have been fully vaccinated. It could be a three-day RT-PCR test or a 24-hour rapid PCR test, depending on when you get there.
Arrivals who have not been vaccinated must undergo a test, and after five days of quarantine, they must take another test. You will be obliged to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19 at any time during your stay in Barbados.
The NHS Covid Pass is valid proof of vaccination in the United Kingdom.
An embarkation/disembarkation card must also be submitted by all passengers.
