Anguilla’s Ministry of Health has updated its entry protocols guidelines and closed its online entry portal for permission to travel.

The new guidelines came into effect on Wednesday, Jun. 1, 2022, and are in accordance with Anguilla’s evolving COVID-19 Exit Strategy. Evidence of full vaccination status and a negative Covid-19 test result will still be required for entry.

All persons over the age of 5 years traveling to Anguilla will still require a valid, negative Covid-19 test. Accepted tests include a PCR or NAA test administered within 3 days of arrival or a Rapid Antigen test which must be taken no more than 2 days before arrival. This information must be presented before boarding and on arrival in Anguilla, along with evidence of full vaccination status. Self-administered/home testing kits (including tests that are video proctored) and antibody tests are still not accepted at this time.

Testing on arrival has been discontinued for all persons traveling to Anguilla, except for persons who arrive without an accepted pre-arrival test. Those without an accepted negative test will be subject to PCR testing on arrival and must remain in place at their hotel or villa until the results are known, in addition to paying a fine.

Anguilla remains a vaccination-only destination for adult visitors. If an unvaccinated person wishes to request a medical exemption permitting entry into Anguilla, they should apply for the exemption in writing at visitanguilla@gov.ai under the subject heading “Request for COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption”.

An unvaccinated visitor who is granted a medical exemption permitting entry shall be required to quarantine for a period of not less than 5 days, or other such period specified by the Quarantine Authority.
