Barbados Lifts Quarantine and Second PCR for Fully Vaccinated Travelers

Barbados has since removed its quarantine requirement and mandatory second PCR test for fully vaccinated visitors. Now, vaccinated travelers only need their negative PCR test results taken within 3 days of travel and proof of vaccination. Travelers may be subject to random antigen testing on arrival, at no additional cost.

Travelers not vaccinated may also travel to the island with a negative PCR result from the previous 72 hours but will need to quarantine in Barbados for five days at a pre-approved accommodation. Thereafter, take a second PCR test at their own expense (at a specific, approved lab) on day five of their trip and continue to self-isolate until they receive a negative result.

The island has also scrapped its Countries of Special Consideration list, which imposed alternative restrictions on travelers who had come from destinations with worrying variants, including Brazil, India, and South Africa.
