Saint Lucia is digitizing its embarkation and disembarkation form for visitors, in what is hopefully part of a broader Caribbean trend.
The island has announced that, effective March 1, the immigration form for visitors is going digital.
The new electronic form will replace the written form and “significantly reduce the processing time of arriving passengers,” according to a statement from the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority.
The form should be submitted prior to arrival in Saint Lucia. If visitors have not completed the form digitally before arrival, they will have to fill out a written form.
“We continuously strive to secure our borders and provide quality service to travelers at our points of entry while protecting the safety and security of our nationals, visitors, and business associates with a reliable immigration system. In advancing our seamless entry process, the written form will be phased out as of April 12, 2023,” said Sean Alexander, Assistant Superintendent in Charge of the Department of Immigration in Saint Lucia.
