May 8th, marks the start of new travel protocols for fully vaccinated travelers to Barbados. Travelers to the island who provide a vaccination certificate that shows they have had either the AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson and Johnson vaccines will quarantine for one or two days at an approved accommodation.
Vaccinated individuals will still have to provide proof of a negative PCR test result taken three days before they travel and must take a second PCR test upon arrival. They will then be transported to their accommodation by an approved service provider.
Unvaccinated travelers, or those traveling from a country where certain variants of Covid-19 are of concern to Barbados, must provide a negative PCR test taken three days prior to arrival and quarantine in their room for five days to seven days. On the fifth day travelers will take another PCR test and will be allowed to leave quarantine after a negative result is received. Results are normally returned within 24 to 48 hours after the test is administered. Click here for the details of the latest Barbados Travel Protocols.
