In a major move for travelers, St Kitts has reduced its “vacation in place” hotel quarantine requirement to just 24 hours, Caribbean Journal has learned.
Within 24 hours upon arrival in St Kitts, travelers staying at an approved tourist accommodation will be tested.
The “vacation in place” requirement means travelers are free to roam their hotel properties as they await their test results, but cannot leave the hotel itself.
Upon receipt of a negative test, travelers will be able to fully integrate into the Federation.
That means dining in restaurants, liming at beach bars on “The Strip” or visiting historic forts and attractions.
Since May 29, only fully vaccinated travelers have been allowed entry to the Federation; that remains in place, with exemptions for children under the age of 18 accompanying fully vaccinated parents or guardians.
All travelers additionally need to submit proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours before arrival, part of the required Travel Authorization Form (here’s where to find it).
There are seven hotels approved for international travelers in St Kitts, ranging from the celebrated Park Hyatt St Kitts to the Royal St Kitts Hotel., among others.
Travelers who wish to stay at a private villa or condo that has been approved as quarantine housing must contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
