  • Barbados Government to reopen borders to international travelers, to resume commercial flights at Grantley Adams Airport from 12 July (Travel Market Report, 29.06.2020)

    *****

    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.
