St Vincent and the Grenadines, which reopened for tourism last month, has implemented a series of changes to its travel protocols including the addition of a quarantine period for U.S. travelers on commercial flights.
St Vincent and the Grenadines had already been requiring a negative COVID-19 result within seven days of arrival for all U.S. travelers.
All travelers will also be tested immediately upon arrival.
Now, the country is requiring proof of a fully-paid reservation in an approved hotel for five nights, and an initial quarantine in the approved hotel for five days.
After that period, the traveler will be tested again before their release from quarantine.
The requirements for discharge from quarantine include a negative PCR test; no close contact with a positive case; absence of signs and symptoms and a determination that the traveler is not at high risk for being exposed.
And depending on the risk after that point, travelers will quarantine for a period of nine to 16 days at the discretion of the Port Health Officer.
Travelers from other source markets like Canada will have to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test received within five days of the date of arrival or take a test upon arrival.
Those who take the test on arrival will have to quarantine until their results are available — at least 24 hours.
The country is also requiring all travelers to fill out this form.
