St. Barts today reopened its borders to American those who have proof of vaccination against COVID-19 and who live in the U.S. and most other countries.
Nils Dufau, the President of the St Barths Tourism Committee announced a plan today to re-open the island’s borders to U.S. residents 18 and older if they meet these two conditions: providing proof of being fully vaccinated or providing a negative test result from a PCR test taken no more than three full days prior to arrival.
In addition, all travelers aged 10 and older will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than three full days prior to arrival.
Rapid antigen tests will also be accepted, with results no more than two full days prior to arrival. Travelers will need to show proof of a negative result when checking in for their flights.
Once a traveler arrives on St. Barts, they can move about freely to all public spaces, including beaches, with no restrictions.
The news follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lowering the St. Barts Travel Risk advisory from Level 4 to Level 1—the lowest level of risk—earlier this week.
