These Caribbean Islands are OPEN and What to Know Before you Book Your Travel (updated October 2020)

From the amount of email and phone inquiries our office has been receiving, It's clear many people are ready to get back to traveling and an island getaway sounds perfect about now.


But when you're deciding which Caribbean island you want to visit, the entry requirements are not equal. We're breaking down which Caribbean Islands are open, what the entry (and exit) procedures are, and also sharing some of our favorite promotions going on right now!



St. Lucia

One of our favorite islands, St. Lucia, has been a popular post-COVID island due to the extremely low rates of Coronavirus cases on the island. They were able to open fairly effortlessly and efficiently and the secluded spaciousness of the resorts here already lent themselves well to social distancing and low crowds.


Entry Requirements for Saint Lucia:

  1. Receive a negative COVID-19 PCR Test within 7 days of arrival.

  2. Complete a Pre-Arrival Registration Form 3 days prior to arrival

  3. Keep a printed confirmed Pre-Arrival Registration Form with you during your travels (required at flight check-in and in destination)
