May 7. Anguilla’s shutdown following its first significant COVID-19 outbreak will end on May 25, when the country will reopen to visitors, said government officials in a statement.
The Caribbean nation closed its borders on April 22 following identification of “a cluster of active COVID-19 cases.” Recent containment of the cluster, along with the island’s “progressive” vaccination program, will allow the country to reopen to travelers under previously announced protocols, officials said Thursday.
Under recently revised protocols, the “stay-in-place” resort mandate for fully vaccinated travelers has been reduced to seven days from the previous 14. Travelers’ final vaccination dose must have been administered at least three weeks prior to arrival.
All Anguilla travelers are required to apply for entry permission and produce proof of a negative PCR test administered three to five days prior to arrival on the island. Non-vaccinated visitors must also provide proof of health insurance coverage. Travelers will also undergo a PCR test upon arrival at the port of entry.
Beginning July 1, fully vaccinated visitors will not be required to quarantine and will not undergo testing upon arrival. Travelers must apply for entry permission and will be required to produce a negative COVID-19 test administered three to five days prior to arrival. Entry fees will be discontinued.
