More good news from the Caribbean: Saint Lucia has dropped all its COVID-19 pre-travel requirements for international travelers.
What this means for your island-bound clients is that the testing and vaccination requirements for entry into Saint Lucia are no longer necessary. All arriving passengers must download, print and complete a health screening form for arrival in Saint Lucia.
However, please remind your clients there are still some general protocols that need to be followed while on the island.
The physical distance and mass crowd limitation protocols are removed. Mask wearing is still required on public transportation, though the capacity restriction has been removed. The hand sanitation and temperature checks on entry of business establishments are optional and at the discretion of the service provider. Your clients will want to keep in mind that business establishments reserve the right to implement public health measures as required.
In addition, the wearing of face masks is optional but remains highly recommended to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. Face masks are mandated in the following circumstances: if one has tested positive for COVID-19, has respiratory symptoms or has been in direct contact with a positive case, accessing general health services, accessing police and fire stations, correctional facilities, elderly homes, attending religious ceremonies where there are large crowds of people in close contact, educational institutions, in enclosed crowded environments and accessing public transportation.
