Barbados: Updated COVID-19-Related Entrance Measures

June 8, 2022 Jessie Butchley

Key Points 

  • Fully vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to undergo pre-departure COVID-19 testing when traveling to Barbados 

Overview  

The government of Barbados reduced its COVID-19-related health entrance measures on 25 May 2022. Under these new measures, fully vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to undergo pre-departure COVID-19 testing.  

Unvaccinated travelers will be required to provide a negative pre-departure test taken within three days of arrival. The test can be either a standard PCR test, a rapid PCR test or a rapid antigen test. These travelers will also be required to undergo rapid antigen testing upon arrival in Barbados.  

Unvaccinated travelers who can present proof of having had COVID-19 in the past 90 days prior to arrival will not be required to undergo testing upon arrival but will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken prior to departure. Travelers, regardless of vaccination status, will not be required to undergo a quarantine period throughout their stay in Barbados.  

What are the Changes?  

On 25 May 2022, the government of Barbados will no longer require fully vaccinated travelers to undergo pre-departure COVID-19 testing. Unvaccinated travelers will be required to undergo pre- and post-arrival testing unless they have been infected with COVID-19 in the past 90 days and can provide evidence of recovery.
