St. Kitts & Nevis has reduced the “Vacation in Place” period for fully vaccinated international air travellers from nine days to three days, with testing on day four and the ability to fully integrate into the Federation upon receipt of a negative test result. The announcement of the change was made by the country’s Prime Minister, the Hon. Timothy Harris and became effective on July 12, 2021.
International borders remain open for travel by commercial air and sea vessels. As summer family travel is at its peak in July, the travel requirements for non-vaccinated children under 18 have been aligned with those of their parents:
- Non-vaccinated children under 18 traveling with fully vaccinated parents are welcome.
- Non-vaccinated children under 18 traveling with fully vaccinated parents will observe the same period of Vacation in Place as their parents.
The increased vaccination rate in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, with 69.7% of the adult population having received one dose of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine and 57.6% of the adult population fully vaccinated, has achieved notable improvements over the past two weeks managing the number of COVID-19 cases since the first case of community spread was reported on May 19, 2021, resulting in 530 cases and three (3) deaths.
As announced at the end of May, only fully vaccinated travellers will be allowed entry to the Federation. Exemptions are in place for Citizens and Residents of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis and children under the age of 18 coming from international destinations. All Travel Protocols and Requirements remain in place for the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis.
