Yesterday, Puerto Rico Reopened after being isolated for nearly a week after a “coconut tree” fell and struck a power line. The island’s governor gave a short statement explaining that the island’s power company would work to restore power as quickly as possible. This would be followed by the reopening of the U.S. embassy in Cuba.
A few months ago, I wrote how the British government had updated their entry requirements for visitors to the Caribbean as it sought to reduce the number of people who are refused entry to the region. As you may recall, a few weeks ago, the British government announced that it would be easing the rules for visitors from the following countries: Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent.The overseas territories of Guadeloupe and Martinique in the French Caribbean reopened their borders to visitors from the United States this week. The French certificate allowing travel between international countries and the Caribbean is orange. Travelers from the United States should therefore be tested for COVID-19 prior to arrival.
Travelers to Guadeloupe and Martinique must present a negative PCR test result less than 72 hours before travel or a negative antigen test result less than 48 hours before travel. Under the new rules, vaccinated visitors will not be quarantined.
French government officials also announced the rapid resumption of air services in the region, including twice-weekly scheduled flights from Miami to Martinique and regional flights from Guadeloupe to St. Lucia, Dominica, Curaçao, Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda, the Dominican Republic and San Juan.
France on June 9 allowed St. Barthélemy, another overseas territory in the Caribbean, to reopen its borders to fully vaccinated travelers from the U.S. The area was originally scheduled to reopen to visitors in June 2024, but on 3. In February this year, access to the country was closed due to concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 strain.
To enter St. Barts, travelers must provide proof of vaccination and proof of a negative PCR test within three days of arrival or the result of an antigen test within 48 hours. Visitors under 18 are not required to show proof of vaccination, and travelers under five are not tested.
Several other Caribbean countries have adjusted their travel protocols in recent weeks to allow vaccinated travelers to enter these countries with fewer restrictions and quarantine requirements, including the British Virgin Islands.
Last week, Anguilla received a level 1 rating from the Centers for Disease Control, the lowest risk level of COVID-19; as of July 1, all visitors to Anguilla must be fully vaccinated to enter the country.
Travellers to Anguilla should always submit an entry application three to five days prior to arrival and provide proof of a negative PCR test for COVID-19. Visitors no longer need to be tested on arrival and can travel freely in Anguilla.
