The Office of the Premier on Montserrat has confirmed that the recently announced policy by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda requiring all arriving passengers to be COVID-19 vaccinated (at least partially), also applies to persons in transit to and from Montserrat.

On Sept. 15, the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda announced new measures as part of its policy on the management of COVID-19.  One such measure is that as of Oct. 1, “All arriving passengers, including returning nationals and residents, are required to have received at least the first dose of a vaccine approved by the appropriate authorities in Antigua and Barbuda.”

Montserrat’s Premier and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Joseph E. Farrell spoke with Antigua’s Prime Minister, Gaston Browne on Friday morning (September 17, 2021) who confirmed that the policy for all travelers to be vaccinated, also applies to persons in transit to and from Montserrat.

As it relates to medical emergencies/evacuations to Antigua from Montserrat, Minister of Health and Social Services (Acting), Veronica Dorsette-Hector spoke with Minister of Health, Sir. Molwyn Joseph about the implications for the acceptance of unvaccinated patients from Montserrat.

In that conversation, Antigua and Barbuda’s Health Minister said that the current arrangement for the acceptance of medical emergencies from Montserrat will remain unchanged.

Therefore, Dorsette Hector confirmed that medical evacuations/emergencies from Montserrat can still be transferred to  Antigua provided that the established strict COVID-19 protocols which are already in place, are followed.

The COVID-19 vaccines currently in use in Antigua and Barbuda are:

  • Oxford AstraZeneca Vaccine
  • Sputnik V
  • Pfizer

As of Sept. 16, the number of new cases in Antigua and Barbuda was 159 and the number of Active Cases was 857.

  2. I purchased my ticket before this new mandate was issued. When I purchased my ticket only a negative PRC test was required. Who will reimburse my ticket. This should have taken effect for travellers purchasing tickets after the new announcement.
    In England travellers who not vaccinated require a negative test. Why are antiguans not allowed to enter into their own country? I might be vaccinated and have Covid on the otherhand, I might be unvaccinated but Covid free.

    • The vaccine (which isn’t actually a vaccine) is a now scam that is actively stringing out the pandemic and making it worse. It’s unravelling in Israel, the US and the UK as we speak.

      Ivermectin works.

      • How do you know Ivermectin works?
        Have you tried it, Sea Biscuit? Or perhaps your name is Secretariat? Neigh, neigh. Go in your stable and cool out, fool.
