Barbados’ new COVID-19 travel protocols take effect May 8

Unvaccinated Travelers

Any traveler who has not been fully vaccinated, not vaccinated at all, does not have any evidence of vaccination or has travelled from or transited through a country where the prevalence of certain variants of COVID-19 are deemed of particular concern to Barbados, are required to:

• Provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test on arrival 3 days prior to travel
• Use specifically designated transportation providers for their transport from the airport to
approved accommodation
• Stay within their rooms/suites before receiving a 2nd negative COVID-19 PCR test.
Travellers are not allowed to leave their rooms/suites
• Take their 2nd test 5 days after their arrival to Barbados

All unvaccinated travelers will be required to quarantine for approximately 5 to 7 days.

Special Considerations

Children under 18 who are travelling with fully vaccinated guardians will be allowed to adhere to the fully vaccinated traveler guidelines. If you are travelling within a group as a vaccinated traveler with other unvaccinated travelers, you will be subject to unvaccinated traveler guidelines if you choose not to be separated.

All unaccompanied minors under the age of 18 must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken no more than 3 days prior to arrival. Vaccinated unaccompanied minors will follow the guidelines for all vaccinated travelers, whereas, unvaccinated unaccompanied minors will follow the protocol of unvaccinated travelers.

Due to the fluidity of the COVID-19 pandemic, these protocols are likely to change.
