BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS
As of July 02, 2020, the Government of Antigua and Barbuda requires all travellers to Antigua and Barbuda to present, on arrival, proof of a negative covid-19 test result.
From 1 October 2021 all arriving passengers including returning nationals and residents are required to have received at least one dose of a World Health Organization (WHO) approved 2-dose COVID 19 vaccine or a single dose vaccine to be permitted entry into Antigua and Barbuda. Children below the age of eighteen (18) years arriving at a port of entry are exempted from this requirement.
All travellers are also subject to assessment by the Ministry of Health, Wellness and The Environment (also referred to within this document as the Quarantine Authority), for signs and symptoms through a series of checks and the completion of a health declaration form on arrival.
Based on screenings on arrival, testing may also take place at the discretion of the Quarantine Authority. The test is given at the port of arrival and takes 15 minutes. The results take approximately 96 hours to process, and travellers will be alerted of their results by health officials. Whilst travellers await results they do need to limit their movements, as instructed by the Quarantine Authority.
If the test is negative, travellers may then enjoy and explore Antigua & Barbuda. If the test is positive travellers will need to go into isolation.
