Barbados Is Launching New Journey Protocols Caribbean Journal

Barbados is launching a new set of travel logs in May, the Caribbean Journal has learned.

This includes a number of changes that will apply to fully vaccinated travelers and will go into effect on May 8th.

The country has approved AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines for entry into Barbados.

All vaccinated travelers must perform and receive a negative PCR test three days prior to travel to Barbados.

You will also need to provide a vaccination card and then have a standard or rapid test done at the airport or at their approved accommodation.

While they are waiting for their test result, they have to stay at their hotel and have to be in quarantine for a day or two.

Children under the age of 18 traveling with vaccinated travelers are allowed to follow the vaccinated traveler guidelines.

As for unvaccinated travelers, Barbados requires a negative test within three days of travel. When they arrive, they’ll need to color their rooms before they get a second test, which is done five days after arrival.

All unvaccinated travelers must be quarantined for about five to seven days.

Few Caribbean destinations have specific guidelines for vaccinated travelers.

Only one travel destination, Belize, announced that it would waive pre-screening requirements for vaccinated travelers.
