The Government of Antigua and Barbuda has updated its travel advisory effective immediately to ensure the continued safety of travelers and residents. The V.C. Bird International Airport is open for international and regional air traffic. The Antigua Port Authority is open to Cargo Vessels, Pleasure Craft and Ferry Services which are required to follow all protocols issued by Port Health.

The State continues to carry out a combination of screening, testing, monitoring and other measures to mitigate the risk of importing any new cases of COVID-19 into the country. Additionally, measures have been implemented for the quick detection of any imported cases. This strategy is intended to protect and safeguard the health of both residents and visitors to Antigua and Barbuda.

Nationals and residents of Antigua and Barbuda are strongly advised to restrict their travel to countries with significant escalations in the number of persons recently testing positive for COVID-19 to that for essential purposes only.

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has provided parameters for the establishment of a regional Travel Bubble among the OECS countries of Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Montserrat, Anguilla and British Virgin Islands, together with Barbados. This is designed to facilitate intra-regional travel of nationals, movement of essential workers, and inter-regional travel of visitors to the region while ensuring that the necessary health protocols are followed.

The protocols implemented are as follows:

1. Arriving passengers by air must have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR (real time polymerase chain reaction) test for SARS-CoV-2 taken within seven (7) days of their flight. (This includes transiting passengers).

2. Children below the age of 12 years, entering Antigua, DO NOT REQUIRE a COVID -19 RT-PCR test.

3. Persons traveling to Antigua and Barbuda from countries within the established Travel Bubble must have resided there for no less than fourteen (14) consecutive days prior to travel. They are required to have a negative COVID 19 RT-PCR test result taken within seven (7) days of their flight. They will undergo mandatory health screening upon arrival but will not be subject to quarantine. All other arriving passengers are subject to quarantine as determined by the Quarantine Authority.

4. Passengers arriving for medical treatment/procedures must have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR taken within seven (7) days of their flight. They also must comply with Ministry of Health Guidelines for the Transfer of Patients into Antigua and Barbuda, to include: a) A letter of Request for Medical Transfer from the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of the originating country to the CMO of Antigua and Barbuda who is also the Quarantine Authority. b) A medical report detailing patient’s condition, treatment required and the urgency of the situation. c) A Letter of Acceptance from the receiving institution stating that the patient has been accepted for care, together with the name of the physician who will be managing the patient. d) The intended address in Antigua and Barbuda, together with the name and telephone number of a contact person if available.

7. All arriving passengers must complete a Health Declaration Form and will be subjected to screening and temperature checks by Port Health Authorities upon arrival in Antigua and Barbuda.

8. Persons travelling from countries within the travel bubble will be exempted from quarantine, however, all other arriving passengers will be monitored for COVID-19 for periods of up to 14 days in accordance with the directions of the Quarantine Authority and the Quarantine (COVID-19) Guidelines. Visitors may be required to undergo testing for COVID-19 on arrival or at the hotel or place of lodging as determined by the Health Authorities.

Military Vessels/Aircraft and other Watercraft transporting food, medical supplies, humanitarian and emergency supplies will be required to follow the Quarantine Guidelines established by the Quarantine Authority as well as issued by Port Health and must give prior notification before arrival.

 These restrictions for maritime traffic, and the consequential Antigua Port Authority guidelines, issued during the State of Emergency, shall not restrict vessels engaged in innocent passage and/or transit passage, within the territorial seas and/or archipelagic waters of Antigua and Barbuda, under the 1982 United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

TRAVEL PROTOCOLS

Bermuda is open and welcoming visitors back to the island.

Our island home has always been a precious resource set apart by its geographic location and way of life.

When you are ready, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you out here.

Visitors are to comply with the following Bermuda Government protocols:

Pre-departure — A traveller must:

  • One to three days before departure, complete the Bermuda Travel Authorisation process online which gathers important information for the island’s health and immigration officials; a $75 fee per traveller is required, which includes the cost of all COVID-19 testing in Bermuda. Only MasterCard and Visa are accepted. Each passenger must have a form completed regardless of age. NOTE: Children 9 and younger do not have to be tested at any point, and their Travel Authorisation fee is $30. Travel Authorisation FAQ 
  • Effective December 4, visitors must take a PCR COVID-19 test and obtain a negative result no more than five days before arrival. The day of testing is day 0.

Minister for Health and Social Development Honourable Carvin Malone has announced Cabinet’s decision to require certified RT-PCR Testing at various intervals and sites for all arriving travelers to the Territory.

Health Minister Malone stated that this is part of the Phase Three Testing Protocols which will manage the risk of COVID-19 transmission while reducing quarantine requirements during the incubation period for the disease.

The minister said that Cabinet decided that all travelers will be required to download the approved app and must be issued a Travel Certificate prior to arrival in the Territory. He also explained that the Phase Three Testing Protocols will be applied to all travelers inclusive of Tourists, Residents, Belongers and Work Permit holders.

All incoming travelers will have to provide a certified RT-PCR COVID-19 negative test within five days prior to arrival from low-risk countries and within three days from medium and high-risk countries.

Incoming travelers will also be required to test on arrival, which if negative allows for controlled movement within the confines of an approved property and test after four (4) complete days of quarantine, which if negative would allow for movement within the Territory.

Persons who tests positive for COVID-19 before arrival will not be allowed to enter the Territory. However should a person test positive during any stage after arrival, they will be required to quarantine for 14 days.

When speaking on quarantine protocols for vessel arrivals, Honourable Malone said that persons will be required to provide a certified RT-PCR Test results and quarantine accommodations aboard vessels.

Persons aboard vessels will also be required to quarantine for four (4) days and can do so on approved vessels which will be able to move within the Territorial waters during the quarantine period. However, those approved vessels may only moor at sites approved by the Minister for Health and Social Development in consultation with the Minister for Natural Resources, Labour and Immigration.

Honourable Malone stated that Mega Yachts will be approved entry in accordance with established marine protocols, except otherwise as approved by the Minister for Health and Social Development.

He added that Cabinet also recognised specific groups that would need to be exempted from quarantine requirements and agreed on a COVID-19 Quarantine Exemption Protocol. This protocol will outline risk mitigation measures for groups that include aviation, maritime and medical personnel, diplomats and other essential personnel including the judiciary, persons employed in service of the Commonwealth and inter-regional Caribbean Organisations and exceptional essential persons as approved by the Minister for Health and Social Development and the Governor.

“When entering the Virgin Islands, while these groups are exempt from mandatory quarantine, they must register on the BVI Gateway Travel Application, practice self-isolation, and adhere to the various testing requirements outlined in the Quarantine Exemption Protocols,” Honourable Malone said.

Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie has announced that the seaports of the British Virgin Islands will be opened to international travel on January 21, 2021.

Premier Fahie made the announcement during a live update on the reopening of the Territory’s borders.

http://www.bvi.gov.vg/media-centre/seaports-open-january-21-next-year 

The Government of the Virgin Islands has imposed a travel ban on persons travelling from the Dominican Republic and the United Kingdom (UK) to the BVI with effect from Monday, January 11.

The ban was put in place to promote public safety during the COVID-19 pandemic and does not apply to nationals, Belongers, residents, work permit holders, persons permitted to reside in the Territory, diplomats and persons employed by Government and Statutory agencies.

Minister for Health and Social Development Honourable Carvin Malone in a statement on January 7 said, “All persons approved to travel to the BVI originating or transiting through the Dominican Republic or the United Kingdom are required to provide a five day rt-PCR negative test prior to entry and must undergo a mandatory 14 day quarantine and a testing regimen on the day of entry, on day seven and finally on day 14 when in the Territory.”

Honourable Malone further noted that persons caught violating these provisions will be found and fined.  “The Government takes these breaches very seriously because it is costly to lockdown.  All of our hard work and efforts for the last nine months will not go down the drain,” he said.

The public is also reminded to adhere to all social distancing and public health measures and comply with all lawful instructions of the officers who have been designated to enforce and uphold them. Persons are also encouraged to report any instances of breaches of quarantine to the Public Health Unit at 468-2274 or the Police at 311.

The Ministry of Health and Social Development is committed to keeping the public informed and will continue to provide the Territory with regular updates on the Government’s COVID-19 situation and response.

Dominican Republic

Open

Open Status CHTA Member Hotels

Entry Requirements: Aligning with the launch of the Responsible Tourism Recovery Plan on September 15, 2020, travelers no longer need to provide a negative PCR or COVID-19 test upon arrival. Instead, airports and other ports of entry will perform a quick, aleatory breath test to between 3% and 15% of passengers, and all those who present symptoms, upon arrival. Passengers under the age of five and crew members are exempt from this procedure. All passengers will also need to perform a temperature check. Passengers who present symptoms or whose test results are positive will be isolated and attended at authorized locations. Prior to departure, travelers should confirm with their airline provider and airport of origin regarding any testing or other related requirements for inbound flights to the Dominican Republic, or necessary requirements needed upon arrival  to their country of origin.

 

Passengers traveling from the United Kingdom to the Dominican Republic are required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate issued not more than 72 hours before travel. Travelers that arrive to Dominican Republic without a negative PCR certificate are subject to COVID-19 testing upon arrival and must quarantine for the next 7 days in a government facility, at their own expense. Quarantine may be extended, pending negative test results. If you were planning to travel from United Kingdom to or in transit through the Dominican Republic, please check with your travel professional. These measures also apply to travelers who have been in the United Kingdom in the two weeks prior to arriving to the Dominican Republic.

COVID-19 Testing: As of January 26, 2021, the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism is offering complimentary viral antigen testing to all international visitors staying at a hotel to meet the new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) travel protocols requiring all travelers ages two and above returning to the United States to present proof of a negative PCR or viral COVID-19 test administered within 72 hours prior to departure. The complimentary viral test offering will be administered at hotels across the country to travelers who qualify for the Free Health Coverage Plan. To note, while antigen tests are free to qualifying travelers, there is a small out of pocket fee to cover the cost of processing them. Some hotels have decided to absorb this cost, others will charge the guest a small fee, and a few are not part of the program. Please contact your hotel directly to make an appointment or discuss their specific process.

For reference, the antigen tests will be performed by technical health personnel and the test results will be certified by the Ministry of Health. This complimentary offering is valid for all international tourists arriving via commercial airlines staying at a hotel as part of the country’s free Health Coverage Plan valid through March 31, 2021. Please contact your hotel directly to make an appointment or discuss their specific process.

Upon request and at an additional cost, select hotels will also offer PCR tests to guests. As needed, travelers can also make an appointment for viral antigen testing or PCR testing across the country. Click here for more information on the various testing centers from the DR Travel Center or click here to view testing facilities as outlined by the United States Embassy.

This added testing offering is the most recent addition to the Responsible Tourism Recovery Plan and will be revisited on an on-going basis by the Ministry of Tourism in tandem with the Dominican Government to measures its effectiveness, and will be modified as needed to align with international protocols.

Based on the ever-changing nature of the COVID-19 virus, we recommend connecting with your airline or travel agent directly to discuss any protocols that may apply to your country. As needed, we also recommend visiting the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for any updates to international markets and their required procedures. IATA cannot guarantee its accuracy and can accept no liability for any errors or omissions.

Traveler’s Health Affidavit: As part of the immigration and customs forms provided by the airline or by Dominican authorities, passengers will be required to fill out and submit this printed form Traveler’s Health Affidavit until March 31, 2021. Through this form, passengers declare they have not felt any COVID-19 related symptoms in the last 72 hours and provide contact details for the next 30 days. As of April 1, 2021, the use of digital forms (E-Ticket) will be mandatory.

E-TICKET: As of November 29, 2020, all foreign and Dominican passengers entering or leaving Dominican Republic must complete the electronic entry and exit form, which combines the Traveler’s Health Affidavit, Customs Declaration and International Embarkation/Disembarkation forms. Between November 29, 2020, and March 31, 2021, Dominican authorities will accept both types of registrations to enter the country: the current one through physical forms, and the new one through the digital system. As of April 1, 2021, the use of digital forms will be mandatory. The form is available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Russian and can be accessed through the following link: https://eticket.migracion.gob.do. Passengers will need to fill out a form for arrival and another one for departure and the system will generate two QR codes. Dominican airports have free internet access, so that passengers who did not fill out the form before flying can do so when they arrive in the country. To save time during the arrival procedure, we recommend filling out the form 72 hours before the trip, printing or making a screenshot of the QR code and keeping it on hand until arrival, where it will be scanned by the authorities when passengers go through Customs. The QR code will not be scanned during departure, but it is a confirmation that the form was completed correctly. If passengers need to make any changes to the form, they must fill it out a new form. Currently https://eticket.migracion.gob.do/ is presenting some technical difficulties to complete the forms using Apple devices (smartphones and tablets) and the Safari and Internet Explorer search engines, among others. The authorities are constantly working to improve the system and hope to solve this issue as soon as possible. As of now, we advise passengers who own Apple devices to complete it using a computer and to use another browser, such as Google Chrome. Currently the system works correctly using Android devices. For additional information and to watch an instructional video, please visit: https://viajerodigital.mitur.gob.do/ 

Free Health Coverage Plan: All international tourists arriving on commercial flights and staying at a hotel will be granted during the check-in process a temporary, free health coverage plan that provides coverage for emergencies in the event of an infection or exposure to COVID-19 while in-country. The coverage includes medical attention by specialists, medical transfers, transfer of a relative, penalty for airfare changes, lodging for prolonged stays and more. This insurance will be provided at no cost to visitors arriving on or before March 31, 2021 and will be 100% paid for by the Dominican government. In order to obtain coverage of the health plan the tourist must enter the country exclusively by air and only applies for guests staying at a hotel. For more information or to receive assistance while in the country in the event of exposure, please contact the Seguros Reservas Assistance Line by dialing +1 809 476 3232 so that a representative can determine the appropriate course of action on a case by case basis.

Puerto Rico

Open

Open Status - CHTA Member Hotels

Puerto Rico is enforcing local measures developed by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC), alongside U.S. Travel Association (USTA) guidelines, such as social distancing, mandatory face coverings in public areas, and a variety of mandates for businesses – including, but not limited to, reduced capacities and high standards of cleanliness in accordance with CDC and EPA guidelines.

Travelers entering the Island are required to fill out a Travel Declaration Form through the Puerto Rico Health Department’s online portal, get a molecular COVID-19 test (nasal or throat swab) no more than 72 hours prior to visiting the Island, and show proof of a negative result or they must quarantine. An Island-wide curfew is in effect from 11:00 PM – 5:00 AM, except for emergencies. Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory and excluded from the CDC requirement to provide a negative COVID-19 test result to return to the mainland United States. Quarantine mandates, recommendations, and entry requirements may vary by state.

Public beaches and natural reserves are open, following social distancing guidelines. Public alcohol consumption is prohibited. Supermarkets, pharmacies, and gas stations are open, with supermarket delivery services available through midnight. Restaurants, casinos, and museums are operating at 30% capacity and pools at hotels and other establishments are open at 30% capacity. Bars remain closed.

A continuous assessment of the situation in Puerto Rico and in the United States influences Island-wide orders that prioritize the health and safety of residents and visitors. For travel recommendations provided by the CDC, please see here.

Island Arrival

To further safeguard residents and visitors, all arriving passengers must comply with the following measures before arriving to Puerto Rico:

  • Complete an online Travel Declaration Form from the Puerto Rico Health Department, which can be accessed at www.travelsafe.pr.gov  or www.viajaseguro.pr.gov. Kiosks at the airport are also available for travelers to fill out the form upon arrival, as it is a requirement to exit the airport.  
  • Demonstrate a negative molecular COVID-19 test result (which consists of a nasal or throat swab), taken no more than 72 hours prior. Testing sites on the mainland U.S. can be found here. It is highly recommended to get tested prior to arriving on the Island given limited resources.
  • Obtain Airport Exit Confirmation number and QR Code, which travelers will automatically receive when uploading their molecular test results to the Puerto Rico Health Department’s online portal.

Airport Processes:

  • The Puerto Rico National Guard is assisting with enhanced health screenings of all arriving passengers at the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, where all passenger flights are currently being diverted. Face masks are mandatory.
  • All arriving travelers will be pre-screened via thermographic cameras to monitor temperatures, and enhanced protocols will take place at baggage claim before exiting the airport.

Asymptomatic Traveler (person who doesn't present COVID-19 related symptoms)

  • If an asymptomatic traveler (a person who doesn't present COVID-19 symptoms) arrives on the Island with a complete Travel Declaration Form, a negative molecular COVID-19 test result, and an Airport Exit Confirmation number and QR Code, the traveler can proceed with their trip.
  • If an asymptomatic traveler (a person who doesn't present any symptoms) arrives on the Island with a complete Travel Declaration Form, but is awaiting the molecular COVID-19 test result taken no more than 72 hours prior, the traveler is required to quarantine for 14 days or until test results are provided digitally to the Puerto Rico Health Department.
  • If the molecular test result is negative, the 14-day quarantine will be lifted.
  • If the molecular test result is positive, the traveler must isolate and seek medical attention. Travelers placed in isolation will be responsible for covering their own medical expenses/extended stay.
  • If an asymptomatic traveler (a person who doesn't present any symptoms) arrives on the Island with a complete Travel Declaration Form, but without a negative molecular COVID-19 test result and is not awaiting results, a Testing Authorization Voucher will be provided for the traveler to get tested locally. A list of testing sites on-island will be provided at the airport and can also be found here.
  • While awaiting results, the traveler will need to quarantine for 14 days at their lodging property, cover COVID-19 testing fee, and possible extended stay.
  • If the on-Island molecular test result is negative, the quarantine will be lifted.
  • If the on-Island molecular test result is positive, the traveler must isolate and seek medical attention. Travelers placed in isolation will be responsible for covering their own medical expenses/extended stay.
  • If the traveler chooses to not take a molecular COVID-19 test on the Island, they must quarantine for 14 days and cover their own extended stay.

Symptomatic traveler (person who is displaying COVID-19 related symptoms)

  • If a symptomatic traveler (a person who is displaying COVID-19 related symptoms) arrives on the Island, the Puerto Rico National Guard will conduct a rapid COVID-19 test at the airport (which consists of a finger prick blood test). Even if the test result is negative, it will be mandatory for the traveler to quarantine and cover their own medical expenses/possible extended stay as rapid COVID-19 tests can sometimes yield false results. The quarantine is mandated until the traveler digitally uploads proof of a negative molecular COVID-19 test result taken on-Island to the Puerto Rico Health Department’s online portal.
  • A list of testing sites in Puerto Rico will be available at the airport and can also be found here.
  • If a negative molecular test is not provided, the traveler will be required to quarantine for 14 days, or the length of their stay.
  • If the rapid COVID-19 test (which consists of a finger prick blood test) conducted at the airport results are positive, the traveler will get a molecular COVID-19 test on-site.
  • While the traveler awaits the results, they must isolate themselves at their lodging property.
  • If the molecular test is negative, the quarantine will be lifted.
  • If the molecular test is positive, the traveler will continue to isolate and seek medical attention at the traveler's expense.
