Barbados Updates Entry Protocols for Visitors

Barbados just announced tightened entry protocols for visitors to the island.

The island now requires a negative COVID-19 PCR test result received within 3 days before arrival. This applies for all visitors from medium and high-risk countries including the United States, France, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom. See the full list below.

Barbados will retest all visitors from medium and high-risk countries 48-72 hours after arrival on the island. What does this mean? During the first 48 hours of your stay on the island, you will be limited to the grounds of your hotel, resort or villa until the second COVID-19 test has been taken and negative results received. According to Barbados officials, it typically takes up to 24 hours to receive the results once the test has been taken.

Visitors with a negative test result on their second test will no longer be restricted to their property’s grounds.

Self-monitoring for all visitors is required with daily self-temperature checks taken and reported to Barbados’ public health authority via call or text for the first 7 days of your trip.

The new entry protocols will go in effect as of October 1, 2020.
