Antigua | Safer Future Travel


As of 01 October 2021, visitors to Antigua and Barbuda will be required to have a negative RT PCR test taken up to FOUR (4) days before travel.

Pre-arrival requirements

Up to and including 30 September all passengers 5 years and older, arriving by air including those transiting the country, must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken within 7 days of their flight. From 01 October all COVID-19 RT-PCR tests must be taken within 4 days of the flight. Only tests administered by health care professionals are valid. Home tests are not permitted. You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.

Testing / screening on arrival

Further health screening is in place at VC Bird International Airport and the private jet terminal for all international arrivals. Passengers must complete a Health Declaration Form and will be subject to temperature checks by Port Health Authorities. Arriving passengers who are allowed to stay in their private homes or at a government facility will be required to wear a monitoring bracelet according to the Quarantine Authority regulations.

Additional measures are subject to change but may include mandatory temperature, travel history checks, a check on whether your accommodation is on the Government of Antigua and Barbuda’s Approved List, and completion of a Health Declaration Form. You should expect long waiting times on arrival.

Quarantine requirements

On arrival, you will be subject to health screening. The Ministry of Health and Wellness of Antigua and Barbuda advise that all arrivals will be monitored for coronavirus for up to 14 days and that ultimately it is the decision of the Quarantine Authority on who must self-isolate or quarantine on arrival.

Tourists arriving with pre-booked hotel accommodation from the Government of Antigua and Barbuda’s Approved List will normally be permitted to travel to their accommodation after screening (which might include a COVID test if Port Health deem it necessary) and be allowed to move around the country providing they adhere to local social distancing measures. This is regardless of their vaccination status.
