Quarantine

Quarantine requirement at government designated site.

On arrival, you will be quarantined at approved facilities (a designated holding hotel, approved villa or a government facility at your own expense). You will be required to undergo a second PCR test 5 days after arrival.
You will need to remain in your hotel room and may be required to wear an electronic tracking bracelet until you receive the results of your second test. If the result of that second test is negative, you will not be subject to further quarantine. The government aims to return results within 48 hours. Return times can sometimes be longer than this. See the Barbados Travel Protocols for further details.
From 8 May a new protocol is in place for fully vaccinated individuals (2 doses administered more than 14 days prior to arrival) who have not visited high risk countries including India, South Africa or Brazil in the previous 21 days.
Details of what the Barbadian authorities will accept as proof of vaccination can be found in the Barbados Travel Protocols. If you are unable to provide sufficient proof that you have been vaccinated then you will be treated as if you are unvaccinated.
On arrival, you will undergo a rapid PCR test either at the airport or at your government-approved accommodation. You will need to remain on the premises of your accommodation and follow the quarantine rules until you receive the results of your second test. The government aims to return results within 24 hours but it is recommended that you book two nights’ accommodation. See the Barbados Travel Protocols for further details.
If the result of that second test is negative, you will not be subject to further quarantine.
If you test positive for COVID-19 at any point during your stay in Barbados, you will be required to self-isolate. You will first be transferred to the government isolation facility for at least 24 hours. Conditions at the government quarantine facilities are generally basic and not necessarily equivalent to a tourist hotel with the associated services. Alternatively, you can request to self-isolate at your hotel, apartment or villa, or government approved isolation property under strict stipulations that must be signed and adhered to. This will be at your own expense for non-nationals and non-residents. You will need to remain at your designated accommodation until the Barbadian authorities are satisfied that you have recovered. This may mean a mandatory stay of several weeks in Barbados.
Upon recovery, tourists can continue their holiday or return home. The option to self-isolate in an approved hotel, villa or property is not a right – the decision will be made by healthcare professionals. See the Barbados Travel Protocols for full details of isolation options, facilities and requirements.
If you are deemed to have been in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case, you will be required to quarantine at approved facilities. See Barbados Travel Protocols for full details.
You can find full and definitive details of the protocols at Visit Barbados website
and are advised to read and understand the requirements carefully before departure.
You should monitor the Visit Barbados website on a regular basis as the Government of Barbados may change the requirements without notice.

If you arrive in Barbados from the UK without a valid negative PCR test, you may be denied entry to the country. You should arrange to take a private test. On arrival all passengers are also subject to a health screen.
    *Quarantine: All arrivals from the UK are required to undergo a rapid antigen test at the airport. If negative, you will then be quarantined at approved facilities (a designated holding hotel, approved villa or a government facility at your own expense). See the Barbados Travel Protocols for further details. You will be monitored for seven days after arrival. (Monitoring includes interviews and assessments with public health professionals.) You will be required to undergo a second PCR test 5 days after arrival.
    You will need to remain in your hotel room and may be required to wear an electronic tracking bracelet until you receive the results of your second test. If the result of that second test is negative, you will not be subject to further quarantine. The government aims to return results within 48 hours. However, at present, return times are longer than this. If you test positive for COVID-19 at any point during your stay in Barbados, you will be required to self-isolate. You will first be transferred to the government isolation facility for 24 hours. You can then request to self-isolate at your hotel or villa, or government approved isolation property under strict stipulations that must be signed and adhered to. This will be at your own expense for non-nationals and non-residents. You will need to remain at your designated accommodation until the Barbadian authorities are satisfied that you have recovered. This may mean a mandatory stay of several weeks in Barbados. Upon recovery, tourists can continue their holiday or return home. See the Barbados Travel Protocols for full details of isolation options, facilities and requirements. If you are deemed to have been in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case, you will be required to quarantine at approved facilities.

  • Barbados International Restrictions:

    *Entry to Barbados: Barbados has published travel protocols setting out its entry requirements in relation to COVID-19. Visit the Visit Barbados website for full details. You should read these before your departure and monitor the pages on a regular basis as the requirements may change at short notice. Masks should be worn at all times during your travel to Barbados and your passage through the airport. Social distancing and hygiene protocols are in place.
    *Arrive with a COVID 19 negative test: The Government of Barbados designates the UK as a High Risk country. All travellers must present on arrival a valid COVID-19 negative test result taken no more than 3 days in advance of your flight’s arrival. Please note that the test can be taken at any time during the day 3 days prior to the date of your arrival in Barbados. (For example, if your flight arrives at 10pm on Saturday, you can take a test at any time on the Wednesday prior to this.) You should check the protocols to confirm and understand all requirements. Relevant test accrediting bodies and standards authorities include: ISO 15189, CAP, UKAS or the equivalent. All passengers are also required to submit an Embarkation/Disembarkation (ED) card 24 hours prior to travel, to which they should upload their negative test result via www.travelform.gov.bb.
    If you arrive in Barbados from the UK without a valid negative PCR test, you may be denied entry to the country. On arrival all passengers are also subject to a health screen.
    *Quarantine: All arrivals from the UK are required to undergo a health screen. You will then be quarantined at approved facilities (a designated holding hotel or approved villa at your own expense, or free of charge at a government facility). See the Barbados Travel Protocols for further details.
    You will be monitored for seven days after arrival. (Monitoring includes interviews and assessments with public health professionals.) You will be required to undergo a second PCR test 5 days after the first accepted negative test result. You will need to remain in your hotel room and may be required to wear an electronic tracking bracelet until you receive the results of your second test. If the result of that second test is negative, you will not be subject to further quarantine. The government aims to return results within 24 to 48 hours. However, at present, return times are estimated at around 5 days.
    If you test positive for COVID-19 at any point during your stay in Barbados, you will be required to self-isolate. You can request to do this at your own expense at your hotel or villa, or government approved isolation property under strict stipulations which must be signed and adhered to. Alternatively, you will be transported to alternative accommodation for isolation. You will need to remain at your designated accommodation until the Barbadian authorities are satisfied that you have recovered. This may mean a mandatory stay of several weeks in Barbados. Upon recovery, tourists can continue their holiday or return home. See the Barbados Travel Protocols for full details of isolation options, facilities and requirements.
    If you are deemed to have been in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case, you will be required to quarantine at approved facilities. See Barbados Travel Protocols for full details.
    You can find full and definitive details of the protocols at Visit Barbados website and are advised to read and understand the requirements carefully before departure.
    You should monitor the website on a regular basis as the Government of Barbados may change the requirements without notice.

    Internal Restrictions:
    *Travel in Barbados: Everyone should comply with the measures put in place in Barbados to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Details of these measures can be found at the Barbados Government Information Service website and the Visit Barbados Travel Protocols.

Regular washing of hands is encouraged and you can expect to be asked to clean your hands using hand sanitizer on entering a building. You may be required to quarantine and/or undergo a further COVID-19 test at any stage of your stay if the Barbados authorities deem that you have been in close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual or mandatory monitoring highlights potential COVID-19 symptoms. You should follow the Barbados Government Information Service on Facebook or on their website and monitor the Barbados Travel Protocols for further details as plans are subject to change at short notice. The Barbadian authorities will seek to prosecute people who breach COVID-19 protocols, including those who break quarantine protocols, which may result in a fine and/or prison sentence.
    A limited COVID-19 Directive was introduced on 30 December 2020 to enforce the Barbados Travel Protocols and prevent the spread of COVID-19. A night curfew is in place from 9pm until 5am until 31 January. During the curfew, only essential services including gasoline stations are allowed to operate.

    *****

    International restrictions:

    Barbados plans to amend its entry requirements to coincide with the re-opening of airspace and resumption of commercial flights. Specifically, the need for mandatory 14 day quarantine will be removed. Instead, all persons arriving in Barbados should be tested for COVID-19 at an accredited laboratory. You must take a COVID-19 PCR antigen test 72 hours in advance of your flight. The standard of test must be ISO, or CAP or equivalent. If you’re arriving from CARICOM countries, you’re allowed to be tested up to one week before travel. If you receive a certificate confirming you are COVID-19 negative, you will be allowed to enter Barbados. If you arrive in Barbados without being tested, you will be subjected to a mandatory test on arrival at the Concorde Experience facility which is next to the airport. The cost of the test is US$150. You will need to isolate in your accommodation until the test results are provided. This can take a maximum of 48 hours. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be taken to a Barbados government quarantine facility at Harrison Point, St Lucy. In addition, all persons arriving in Barbados are required to wear face masks and will have their temperature taken.
