Traveling to St Kitts Just Got Easier 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - March 29, 2022

St Kitts and Nevis is updating its travel protocols effective April 1, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The destination’s new rules mean travelers can now show proof of either a negative antigen test within 24 hours before arrival or a negative PCR test within 72 hours prior to arrival. 

It’s a revision of the country’s previous protocols, which had only allowed PCR tests. 

“The Federation is primed to continue welcoming visitors through the spring and summer months,” said St Kitts Tourism Minister Lindsay FP Grant. “We are fully open for visitors, and we are pleased to share revised entry protocols that make air travel to the destination easier for our international guests. We are confident that these amended entry requirements will aid in the rebound of our air arrivals, and the ongoing recovery of our tourism industry and related economies.”

Only fully vaccinated travelers may visit St Kitts and Nevis, with exceptions for children under 18. 

“Spring and summer are ideal times to experience our destination and easing our entry processes means more seamless arrivals for our guests,” added Ellison “Tommy” Thompson, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority. “We look forward to travelers immersing themselves in our quintessential Caribbean experiences this season, whether they’re seeking a relaxing escape, the adrenaline of the outdoors, exceptional cuisine, live music, or a destination rich in history.”

Children ages 11 and under who are accompanying their fully vaccinated parents or guardians take on the vaccination status of their parents. 

Unvaccinated children between 12 and 17 must test upon arrival and vacation in place with family members while awaiting their test results. 

All travelers need to fill out the destinations Embarkation Form (you can find it here), along with submitting proof of vaccination and a hard copy of their test result.
