Travel restrictions and advice
For customers to be accepted for travel they must have tested NEGATIVE for Covid-19 (a PCR Antigen test) within 3 days prior to arrival into Barbados and carry evidence of the test and result. The Covid-19 negative test result must have the date and time it was taken clearly shown. Children under 5 years of age do not require a PCR test. Please note that your negative test must be administered by a clinician at an accredited or certified facility/laboratory, saliva and self-tests will NOT be accepted.
If you cannot present proof of a negative Covid-19 test at the departure airport, you will be denied travel to Barbados. You will no longer be able to test on arrival in Barbados if you do not carry a negative test.
Our Medical, Health and Safety teams have compiled a list of recommended companies that offer PCR Antigen testing for your convenience and peace of mind, including locations for clinician administered tests. We’re constantly evaluating these and making sure they meet or exceed the high standards for Covid-19 testing and country entry requirements, so you can feel confident when you travel.
You will be required to retest 4-5 days after the first accepted negative test result. If the result of that second test is negative, then you will not be subject to further quarantine. However, you will continue to be monitored for 7 days after arrival.
