Most Caribbean islands have reopened to international tourism, and many islands have adopted different restrictions and requirements for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers. Here are the latest developments for travel from the U.S. to each Caribbean country.
Effective Nov. 1, all visitors 18 years and older must be fully vaccinated to enter Anguilla; pregnant women are exempt. Travelers must apply at www.ivisitanguilla.com no later than noon on the day before the day of arrival. The application for entry includes an arrival testing fee of $50 per person. All travelers must present proof vaccination plus a negative Covid-19 test result taken between two and five days prior to arrival. More information: www.ivisitanguilla.com. Updated Oct. 26.
Antigua and Barbuda
All visitors arriving by air are required to show proof of having received at least one dose of an approved vaccine (children under 18 are exempt) and a negative PCR test done within four days of travel (children under five are exempt). All passengers must complete a health declaration form and submit to a temperature check upon arrival. Visitors who complete a successful screening are not required to quarantine once booked at a certified accommodation. More information: www.visitantiguabarbuda.com.
All visitors must complete the Immigration and Customs form 24 hours prior to arrival and must include the negative PCR test result taken no more than 3 days before arrival. Fully vaccinated travelers with a valid negative PCR result no longer are required to take a second PCR test upon arrival in Barbados or observe a quarantine period. Health officials at the Grantley Adams airport may select fully vaccinated travelers at random for a rapid antigen arrival test on entry (free of charge); no quarantine time is required due to short turnaround time for results.

Open to U.S. visitors. Effective Nov. 15, all arriving vaccinated travelers must present proof of Covid-19 inoculation. Unvaccinated foreign travelers must present proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival. Regulations regarding quarantine and further testing on island have been eliminated. More information.
All travelers must submit a health questionnaire at least 24 hours prior to travel and upload a negative PCR test taken between 24 and 72 hours prior to arrival. Vaccinated visitors must upload a vaccination certificate, pay online for a rapid antigen test ($100; test is given on arrival) and present notification of health clearance to travel to Dominica and receipt for antigen test. If the antigen result is negative, there is no mandatory quarantine for fully vaxxed travelers who have been medically cleared. More information: GoDominica.com.
All visitors over age 13 must be fully vaccinated and must quarantine for 48 hours, pending a negative PCR test upon arrival at the airport ($150). All visitors must apply for a travel authorization prior to arrival and book approved Pure Safe accommodations for a minimum of two nights, provide proof of a negative PCR test done 72 hours prior to travel and pre-pay for the PCR test at the airport.

Vaccinated visitors can book rental cars, dine at local restaurants, explore shops and markets and take part in additional activities on the island. Non-vaccinated travelers continue to be permitted to stay at up to two certified and approved properties for the first 14 days of their stay. More information: www.stlucia.org/covid-19.
