Saint Lucia will accept antigen and PCR testing as proof of Covid-19 status for vaccinated travelers entering the country from 5th March.
According to updated protocols, people aged five and up arriving on Sunday must give either a negative fast antigen test or a quick PCR test is done one day before entry, or a negative RT-PCR Covid-19 test taken up to five days prior to entry.
International newcomers who have been properly vaccinated, in-transit passengers, and returning nationals are all affected.
A healthcare provider must administer rapid antigen tests. Saliva testing and self-administered tests are not accepted. Travel tests from the NHS are not valid.
Visitors who have not been vaccinated are welcome to stay at Covid-certified homes. Returning nationals who have not been vaccinated must stay in quarantine for seven days.
All test results must be entered here, and those that test negative will receive an email stating that they are ready to depart. The prior two-step permission process for boarding in St Lucia is no longer necessary.
St. Lorine, Lorine Charles, Lorine Charles, Lorine Charles, Lorine Charles, The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority’s chief executive, Jules, said: “As one of the very first destinations to implement a responsible tourism reopening strategy, Saint Lucia has continuously evaluated Covid-19 travel protocols.
“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 US, UK, Caribbean and around the world.
“Travellers are seeking a seamless experience along with confidence in safety, and our eased protocols reflect our commitment to welcoming travellers back to Saint Lucia.”
90% of tourists arriving in Saint Lucia were completely vaccinated as of January 2022. Two weeks (14 days) after receiving a dose of an accepted single-dose vaccination or two weeks (14 days) after receiving the second dose of an accepted two-dose vaccine series, travelers are deemed completely immunized.
