Update: Barbados Entry Requirements

Dear Friends

At Caribtours we are all delighted that the Caribbean as a destination has managed the current pandemic so well and, that so many of our Caribbean Islands are open for business and have been accepting visitors with a warm welcome for the last few weeks.

Because the UK is now considered to be a high-risk country, it has been necessary for the island of Barbados to temporarily introduce some new entry protocols for UK Visitors. These will be implemented from 1st October.

All visitors must take a Covid-19 test 72 hours before departing the UK for Barbados and provide proof of the negative results, we will clarify all this process for you in plenty of time before your departure date. Travellers will then be asked to take a second Covid 19 test after their arrival in Barbados, within 4-5 days after the first negative test result was done (in the UK).

Therefore, if you were tested in the UK 72 hours before you travelled, your second test would be due 2 or 3 days after arrival. While awaiting that test, guests will need to remain within their hotel for a couple of days. It will be ‘quarantine’ but quarantine with glorious sunshine and a rum punch. 

While this additional test is clearly inconvenient, at Caribtours we are pleased that the Barbados government is approaching this in such a pragmatic way. Covid has meant many changes for all of us over these last six months and we are just happy that our guests can still travel and enjoy their Barbados holidays as originally intended.

For those of us who love long-haul travel, these new restrictions will be a way of life for a little while until life returns to normal.

Welcome to Our Beautiful World. We look forward to sharing it with you
