Grenada to Require All Travelers to Be Fully Vaccinated

By: Alexander Britell - July 27, 2021

Grenada has announced several updates to its travel protocols, including a requirement that all travelers be fully vaccinated. 

The new rules, which take effect July 31, means travelers should have received their second dose of a two-dose vaccine or first dose of a single-dose vaccine at least two weeks prior to visiting Grenada. 

The new rule does not apply to citizens and residents of Grenada or people 13 years and under. 

All travelers need to receive their travel authorization certificate from the Ministry of Health prior to check-in at the airport of origin.

Travelers six years old and over must present a negative PCR test on arrival in Grenada, taken within three days prior to travel. 

An on-island PCR test is administered on arrival which is paid for in advance. 

Fully vaccinated travelers have to quarantine at their approved accommodation for up to 48 hours while awaiting the results of their PCR test. Travelers 13 years old and under traveling with a fully vaccinated party have the same 48-hour-max quarantine period.
