St Kitts and Nevis officially reopened for international tourism on Oct. 31, paving the way for the return of travelers from the United States, Canada, Europe and around the world.
A number of the country’s major hotels have also reopened, including its two flagship properties: the Park Hyatt St Kitts and the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, both of which relaunched this week, along with smaller properties like Paradise Beach in Nevis.
So what do travelers need to know?
All visitors to St Kitts and Nevis must complete a Travel Authorization Form (you can find it here) and submit a negative PCR test completed within 72 hours of travel from an accredited laboratory.
All travelers will then undergo a health screening at the airport, which involves a temperature check and a health questionnaire.
All travelers then have to download the country’s contact tracing mobile app (more details on that to come).
So where can you stay?
St Kitts and Nevis has approved seven hotels for international travelers.
Of those, the aforementioned Four Seasons Nevis, Park Hyatt St Kitts and Paradise Beach Nevis have already reopened, along with the Royal St Kitts Hotel.
