Anguilla is updating its travel requirements for visitors ahead of the winter tourist season, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The island has announced a slate of pre-arrival requirements that will take effect on Nov. 1, 2021.
They include the requirement that all visitors 18 and over must be fully vaccinated in order to be allowed entry to Anguilla; pregnant women are exempt from this requirement.
Fully vaccinated means that more than three weeks have passed since the final dose of of a vaccine schedule.
All visitors must also show proof of a negative PCR or antigen test, but the test must be taken no less than two to five days prior to arrival (self-administered tests will not be accepted).
Upon arrival, all vistors will be tested again; while the test is processed, they’ll be required to stay in place at their hotel, licensed villa or other rental accommodation.
That usually takes less than 24 hours.
If the test result is negative, there is no quarantine requirement; visitors can then explore the island on their own.
Guests staying on the island more than 8 days may be tested on day four of their visit, at no additional cost.
Visitors still have to apply for entry to the island; applications will not be accepted later than 12 PM the day before arrival.
