Antigua Extends Travel Restrictions To Two Additional European Countries

WUHAN, CHINA - JANUARY 29: (CHINA OUT) A community worker checks the temperature of courier in an Express station on January 29, 2020 in Hubei Province, Wuhan, China. Due to a transit shut down and lack of supplies, couriers have became the city's suppliers.

The Government of Antigua and Barbuda has updated its travel advisory effective 19 March 2020, to deny entry to any foreign nationals (including passengers and crew) who have travelled to China, Italy, Iran, Japan, Korea, Singapore, France and Germany within the past twenty-eight (28) days. This decision is concluded considering alarming increases in the number of persons testing positive for the COVID-19 virus in recent weeks.

However, citizens of Antigua and Barbuda as well as resident diplomats will be allowed entry.

All airlines are kindly asked to provide advance passenger information of the scheduled arrival of citizens in order to facilitate the necessary quarantine.

  1. A good move but you still need to do more Gaston. We are dithering in the UK which may cost us dearly. London should be locked down but instead of this all the rich folk are deserting the capital with the virus and heading towards the coast just like the Italians did form Madrid. You must get hard and nasty now Mr Brown. You need to ban UK travellers and others.

  2. Does not make much sense!!! If that is the best we could come up with, I think we might as well allow full access. It appears as though we are using a spinning wheel to decide which countries we block. Spain is now #3 and there is no restriction to travel there. USA is now #6 but you know we cant touch that one so let’s move on. But Singapore is now #33 and we can put restriction there.

    The maths too advance for my comprehension.
