This Caribbean Destination Just Removed Its Quarantine Requirement
It’s getting easier than ever to visit St Kitts and Nevis.
The twin-island federation has removed its one-day “Vacation in Place” quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated travelers.
The move, which took effect this weekend, also included the removal of an on-arrival test requirement.
The country has also implemented a new rule requiring children 12 and older to be fully vaccinated in order to visit the country.
That joins an existing requirement that all adult travelers be fully vaccinated in order to enter the country.
Children under 12 accompanying fully vaccinated parents or guardians are exempt, however.
“The end of our Vacation in Place protocol for Air Travelers and Free Flow for Cruise passengers are major achievements in our phased approach to tourism recovery in the Covid 19 Pandemic,” said St Kitts Tourism Minister Lindsay FP Grant. “We will maintain all tourism protocols through Travel Approved Certification for both air and cruise passengers.”
St Kitts and Nevis also requires all tourism stakeholders to be vaccinated in order to operate taxis or tours; excursions, work in restaurants or bars or provide vendor services.
“We are confident that our continued focus on a phased reopening will enable a meaningful rebound of the industry,” Grant said.
So what else do travelers need to know?
All travelers need to show proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours before arrival in St Kitts; and fill out the country’s Embarkation Form (you can find it here).
St Kitts and Nevis hotels that are currently open to international travelers include the Golden Rock Inn, Montpelier Plantation and Beach, Oualie Beach Resorts and Paradise Beach Resort in Nevis.
In St Kitts, approved hotels include the Park Hyatt St Kitts; Royal St Kitts Hotel; St Kitts Marriott Beach Club; St Kitts Marriott Resort, Four Seasons and Timothy Beach Resort.
“The evolution of our protocols and the end of our Vacation in Place quarantine will make St. Kitts and Nevis even more competitive for travelers planning trips for 2022,” said Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority. “With seamless integration into the Federation, travelers can enjoy our quintessential Caribbean experiences that engage the senses.”
