We know travel no longer looks the same as it once did but Barbados has some good news! Effective 8 May, 2021, fully vaccinated travellers no longer have to spend 5 days in quarantine!
What is a fully vaccinated traveller?
Travellers are deemed to be fully vaccinated when they have completed a full regimen of any COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Ministry of Health. The last vaccine must have been administered more than two weeks before the arrival date in Barbados.
What vaccines are approved?
- Johnson & Johnson
- Sputnik V
How do I prove I am vaccinated?
A vaccine certificate is required for all fully vaccinated visitors to enter the island. The certificates must be shown in English. The validation of these certificates will include one of the following:
- Proof of issuance from a national Public Health Organization.
- Proof of documented vaccinated issued by a hospital or medical centre.
- Use of an independent validation system, such as the IATA Travel Pass or the Digital Green Certificate.
If you do not have the required certification or if your certification cannot be validated, you will be subject to the protocols of unvaccinated persons.
What are the Barbados entry requirements for fully vaccinated travellers?
Travellers must enter Barbados with a negative standard PCR test (not a Rapid or Antigen Test) taken 3 days prior to arrival.
On arrival at The Crane, the Front Desk will make an appointment for you for a 2nd COVID-19 PCR Test, done as soon as possible after your arrival, on-site at the resort.
Results of this test are expected to be back within 24 hours. On receipt of a 2nd negative PCR test, you will have full, unrestricted access to the resort and the island.
I am vaccinated, but my children are not. Can we travel together?
Children under 18 years, travelling with fully vaccinated guardians will be allowed to adhere to the same guidelines as their fully vaccinated guardians.
I am vaccinated but plan to travel with someone who is not. Can we travel together?
If a fully vaccinated adult traveller is travelling with an unvaccinated traveller, 18 years and older and they choose not to be separated, the rules applied to the unvaccinated traveller will also apply to the fully vaccinated traveller.
