All travellers

On arrival, you will be subject to health screening. The Ministry of Health and Wellness of Antigua and Barbuda advise that all arrivals will be monitored for coronavirus for up to 14 days and that ultimately it is the decision of the Quarantine Authority on who must self-isolate or quarantine on arrival.

If you’re fully vaccinated

You must provide evidence of having received both doses of a two-dose WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccine, or a full dose of a single-dose WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccine. All COVID-19 vaccines administered in the UK are WHO-approved.

Fully vaccinated passengers are not required to present a negative COVID-19 test but may be required to submit to a RT PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 upon arrival at their own expense if they are displaying symptoms. Instructions on permissible activities while awaiting results will be provided by Port Health officials.

Proof of vaccination status

Antigua or Barbuda will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 vaccination record. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

If you’re not fully vaccinated

Unvaccinated or partially-vaccinated residents or nationals of Antigua and Barbuda will be permitted entry to the country provided they present a negative certified PCR no more than 3 days or Rapid Antigen Test result taken no more than 24 hours prior to arrival in Antigua and Barbuda; submit to RT-PCR testing upon arrival at their own expense; self-isolate for 10 days if partially vaccinated; or self-isolate for 14 days if unvaccinated. If symptoms appear during the period of self-isolation, the person will be placed in isolation and will be tested for COVID-19.

If you’ve had COVID-19 in the past year

If you have had COVID-19 in the past year, you will still need to demonstrate proof of vaccination as above. Antigua and Barbuda will not accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery letter.

Children and young people

Children under five years of age do not require any form of COVID-19 test to enter or transit Antigua and Barbuda.

Children aged 17 and younger do not need to have been vaccinated to enter or transit Antigua and Barbuda. All passengers aged between 5 – 17 years, arriving by air (including those transiting the country), who are not vaccinated or who are partially vaccinated must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test no more than 3 days or an approved Rapid Antigen test taken no more than 24 hours of their flight. Only tests using nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal specimens/swabs are accepted. Home tests, self-administered tests and those using saliva samples are not accepted. Unvaccinated minors who are not staying at a certified resort or accommodation may be required to quarantine at home for a period of 10 -14 days.

If you’re transiting through Antigua and Barbuda

Transiting is when you pass through one country on the way to your final destination.

Partially/unvaccinated British nationals en route to, and partially/unvaccinated residents of Montserrat are permitted to land in Antigua and Barbuda and transit via aeroplane from V.C. Bird International Airport to Montserrat. Such passengers will not be permitted to leave the airport prior to departure.
