Barbados has stopped testing new arrivals for travelers who have not received their full dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
The Foreign Office updated its travel advice for the region and noted that the new rules took effect on 20th August.
It implies that visitors to Barbados who are not completely immunized may enter on the basis of a negative Covid pre-travel test.
Antigen testing can only be performed up to 24 hours before arrival, while PCR tests can be performed up to 72 hours in advance.
“From 20 August, unvaccinated arrivals are no longer required to quarantine or to take a test on arrival,” said the FCDO.
“Once you have completed a health check and your documentation (pre-arrival test) has been validated, you will be free to move around Barbados unhindered.”
However, the official travel protocols advise on the Visit Barbados website cautions that fully vaccinated adult arrivals who travel in a group or as a couple with non-completely vaccinated arrivals would be subject to the same laws as those non-fully vaccinated visitors.
“If a fully vaccinated adult traveller is traveling with an unvaccinated adult traveller, 18 years and older, and they choose not to be separated, then the rules applied to the unvaccinated traveller will also apply to the fully vaccinated traveller,” as per guidance.
