Grenada Is Easing Restrictions for Vaccinated Travelers

By: Alexander Britell - April 24, 2021

In another boost for Caribbean travel, Grenada is launching a new set of entry requirements on May 1 that will apply to vaccinated travelers, Caribbean Journal has learned.

Beginning May 1, travelers who are fully vaccinated will only be required to quarantine at their accommodation for up to 48 hours, pending a negative result from a PCR test administered on arrival. 

All travelers, including vaccinated travelers, will still have to show proof of a negative test within 72 hours prior to arrival in Grenada.

All visitors need to apply for travel authorization prior to travel here; they’ll also have to cover the cost of the on-island PCR test. 

Grenada considers travelers fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine like AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks after a single dose like Johnson & Johnson.

Travelers who are not vaccinated will be required to quarantine for up to seven days, with a PCR test administered on day five. 

The move to ease restrictions on vaccinated travelers is part of a growing trend in the Caribbean, with destinations like Anguilla and Barbados recently making similar moves.

So far, one destination in the Caribbean, Belize, has waived testing requirements for fully-vaccinated travelers.
