Responding to the continued increase of COVID-19 cases in Canada, the U.S. and other countries in the high risk category, St. Vincent and the Grenadines has announced its latest phase (#10) of entry protocols, which now include a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival, along with a negative SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR COVID-19 test result.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines never officially shut its borders to tourists and remains open for business, poised to welcome visitors once they are permitted to travel from their respective countries. The destination has taken strict measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 and currently has 143 active cases.
Phase 10 took effect on Jan. 11, 2021 and during this phase all travellers to St. Vincent and the Grenadines must arrive with a negative SARS-COV-2 RT-PCR COVID-19 test result no more than 72 hours or three days before arrival. Travellers may be retested upon arrival in SVG at which point they must then complete a mandatory 14-day quarantine in a tourism authority/MOHWE-approved hotel at their own cost. They will be retested between day four and five of quarantine.
