By BBN Staff: St. Vincent and the Grenadines has recently made amendments to the protocols for receiving international travelers, placing a higher number of mandatory quarantine days for those coming in from “high-risk” countries. Belize is among those countries listed as high-risk, along with several other Caribbean countries including Barbados, which is the latest entry on the list.
The Searchlight newspaper reports that under the new protocols, which took effect on January 4, those coming in from high-risk countries will have to spend 10 days in quarantine in an approved hotel upon entering the country. Those traveling from medium-risk countries will have to remain quarantined for five days.
High-risk countries include the United States of America, including the United States Virgin Islands (USVI), China, United Kingdom, Germany, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Guyana, Suriname, Belize, St. Lucia, Grenada, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Brazil, India, Panama, Argentina, Peru, Haiti, Colombia, South Africa, Nigeria, Indonesia, Philippines, Italy, Bahamas, Canada, Turks and Caicos Islands, France (including overseas regions), Spain and Russia.
The only medium-risk countries are Taiwan, Cuba and Antigua & Barbuda, while the list of low-risk countries includes: Anguilla, Dominica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis.
Under the new protocols, travelers from these countries must arrive with a negative result of a COVID-19 (RT-PCR) test done no more than 72 hours before arrival. Travelers may still be tested on arrival in St. Vincent and the Grenadines at the discretion of the Port Health Officer. The protocol also defines the country of residence as the last country that the traveler was present in for at least 21 days.
