Dominica has updated its restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers, Caribbean Journal has learned.

Fully vaccinated travelers will continue to have to provide proof of a negative test within 72 hours before arrival.

When they arrive in Dominica, they’ll then be transported to quarantine at a “Safe in Nature” certified hotel or accommodation for a minimum of two days. 

A PCR test will be administered to fully vaccinated travelers on Day 2 after arrival; travelers must await the results at their hotel or accommodation for up to 24 hours.
