April 7. Good news from the Caribbean where Saint Lucia, Bonaire and Grenada have all made significant changes to their COVID-19 protocols that will make it easier for travelers to visit. As of April 2, 2022, the government of Saint Lucia officially removed all pre-entry COVID-19 testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers entering the country As of April 5, 2022, the requirement for registration and document upload (PCR tests and vaccine card) on the Saint Lucia portal has been suspended until further notice.

Based on the newly updated protocols, fully vaccinated travelers are not required to take a pre-travel COVID-19 test or quarantine. Vaccinated travelers must provide a valid vaccination record as requested on check-in, boarding, and entry to Saint Lucia. To qualify as fully vaccinated, travelers must have had the last dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or a one-dose vaccine at least two weeks (14 days) before travel. Unvaccinated travelers five years and older must have a valid negative standard COVID-19 PCR test five days before arrival. An unsupervised self-swab antigen or PCR test is not accepted.

Meanwhile the Dutch Caribbean Island of Bonaire on March20 announced relaxed entry requirements allowing fully vaccinated visitors, whose second COVID vaccine or booster shot was administered less than 270 days ago, entry without a PCR or antigen test result.

Finally, the government of Grenada has removed all COVID restrictions for entry into Grenada, for all travelers, regardless of vaccination status. Effective after midnight on Monday, April 4, 2022, both vaccinated or unvaccinated travelers arriving in Grenada did not need to take any COVID-19 tests prior to arrival or upon arrival.
