These are the Caribbean islands you could visit (albeit facing restrictions on arrival) without having to self-isolate on your return to the UK:
1. Anguilla: Test before departure
It may be open, but visitors to Anguilla have to jump through lots of hoops during their holiday.
Applications to enter, made via ivisitanguilla.com, must be updated with a negative PCR test taken three to five days before arrival. Thereafter all arrivals are tested upon arrival, and again, after ten days. During the first ten days holidaymakers are required to remain at their chosen accommodation, which can be either a private villa, hotel, or resort. Only after a second negative test can they move freely around Anguilla.
This process, however, doesn’t come cheap. Not only will visitors be required to provide an insurance policy covering medical expenses related to Covid-19, they’re also charged $1,000 (£770) per individual for a stay of less than three months. The fee covers testing, additional health staff required during your visit, and surveillance and security for the ports and accommodation. A family up to four will be charged $1,500 (£1,155) in total.
2. Antigua and Barbuda: Test before departure
All passengers 12 years and older arriving by air in Antigua and Barbuda, including those transiting the country, must provide evidence of a negative PCR test taken no more than seven days before arrival. Further health screening is in place at VC Bird International Airport and a further test on arrival may be required.
3: Barbados: Test before departure
All visitors must present evidence of a negative Covid test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival. All arrivals from the UK must remain in an approved hotel (at their own expense), or a government facility free of charge, until they receive a second negative test result taken 2-3 days after arriving. Once they have the second all-clear, they are free to explore the island and leave the designated accommodation. They will also be asked to monitor their health and check-in with public health representatives via call or text.
4: Bermuda: Test before departure
All visitors from the UK will need to apply for Travel Authorisation and are required to have a pre-departure test.
5. St Lucia: Test before departure
Visitors must provide a negative test result taken no more than seven days previously. All arriving passengers will be screened, including temperature checks, at the airport. Any symptomatic passengers will be isolated and tested. Visitors must stay in an approved resort.
6. St Vincent and the Grenadines: Test before departure
All travellers must complete a pre-arrival questionnaire found at www.health.gov.vc. If you’re travelling from the UK, you must arrive with a negative result of a test done no more than five days before arrival. You will be retested on arrival in SVG and must quarantine for up to 72 hours at a government-approved hotel to await clearance.
