Saint Lucia has decided that all arrivals to the country must have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than five days before arrival. The new rule will be effective from February 10 and will be applied to all travellers over five-years-of-age. All travellers will also be asked to adhere to all safety protocols in place throughout the Caribbean destination, including wearing a mask in public places.
Travellers will also be subject to mandatory screening and temperature checks at ports of entry and throughout a stay. Regulations also state that guests will be transferred by certified taxi to COVID-19 approved accommodation. Arrivals will also have to complete and submit a travel registration form, which is found on the Saint Lucia COVID-19 travel advisory page.
Dominic Fedee, Tourism Minister, St. Lucia said in a statement that in order to co-exist with COVID-19, authorities must constantly evaluate safety and travel protocols. He mentioned that in due consideration of all factors affecting the health of Saint Lucian citizens and international visitors, the country has decided to tighten testing protocols based on the current conditions.
