Traveling to the French Caribbean island of St Barth just got a whole lot easier. 

The tiny Caribbean paradise just removed all travel restrictions to the island, Caribbean Journal has confirmed. 

That means travelers no longer need to show proof of vaccination or testing in order to enter the island. 

In other words, traveling to St Barth is just like it was before the pandemic. 

Fabrice Danet, director of the island’s Remy de Haenen St Barth Airport confirmed the move, which comes as France’s national government has officially removed its Covid-related State of Health Emergency.

The move officially took effect on Aug. 1. 

“For St. Barths, this means that all the measures related to the health pass applied so far are now lifted,” Danet said in a statement. 

It’s a major boost for St Barth, which has been seeing sizzling tourism numbers for much of the pandemic era.

That means a much simpler trip to enjoy some of the island’s spectacular villas like those at WIMCO to the Le Barthelemy beach resort. 

The move comes as St Barth is ramping up for what should be a busy shoulder and winter season, kicking off as it does each year with the Caribbean Rum Awards in the first week of November

That’s followed by the popular Gourmet Festival the following week, part of St Barth’s celebrated Gourmet Month.

And don’t forget to fly there on Tradewind Aviation, still the most glamorous way to arrive on the island.
