Barbados Opens Borders To Vaccinated Visitors

The Government of Barbados has updated its travel protocols required for entry to the country as it continues to manage the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and protect its citizens and visitors alike. As a result, due to the global on-going vaccination process, there have been a few changes to the quarantine and COVID-19 testing processes.


Fully Vaccinated Travelers: The Ministry of Health and Wellness has approved the COVID-19 AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech or Johnson & Johnson vaccinations for entry into Barbados and effective May 8, 2021, travelers who are considered to be fully vaccinated are required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result three days prior to travel; provide a vaccination certificate on arrival to Barbados; have a standard or rapid COVID-19 PCR test done at the airport or their approved accommodation; use specially designated transportation providers for their transport to their approved accommodation, and while awaiting their COVID-19 PCR test result, stay at their approved accommodation where they are free to move around in accordance with the guidelines of that property. All fully vaccinated travelers will be required to quarantine for approximately one to two days. Unvaccinated Travelers: Any traveler who has not been fully vaccinated, not vaccinated at all, or does not have any evidence of vaccination or has traveled from or transited through a country where the prevalence of certain variants of COVID-19 are deemed of particular concern to Barbados is required to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test on arrival three days prior to travel; use specifically designated transportation providers for their transport from the airport to approved accommodation; stay within their rooms/suites and not leave them before receiving a second negative COVID-19 PCR test; and then take a second test five days after arrival to Barbados. All vaccinated travelers will be required to quarantine for approximately five to seven days.

Children under 18 who are traveling with fully vaccinated guardians will be allowed to adhere to the fully vaccinated traveler guidelines. Guests traveling within a group as a vaccinated traveler with other unvaccinated travelers will be subject to vaccinated traveler guidelines if the guest chooses 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 three 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. For more information, visit www.barbadostravelprotocols.com.
