  1. Please advise the new arrival protocols for:
    Fully vaccinated
    Partially vaccinated
    Not vaccinated
    As obviously when ANY arriving passenger is fully vaccinated, there is a presumption of no to very low requirements (neg PCR before boarding, neg rapid test on arrival + track and trace information & electronic vaccination record uploaded to a secure Min of Health special site at least 48-hrs before boarding incoming flight or boat).

    FYI vaccinated tourists are seeking safe options and keen to book summer & winter vacations; A& B need to publish clear, enforceable requirements for ANY arriving passenger (citizen, resident, diaspora, tourist, business, investor).

    Seems we will not go the ‘vaccinated bubble’ route of Grenada. This week PM Mitchell announced all arrivals must be fully vaccinated. He also has regulated that anyone wishing to work in any tourism enterprise must be vaccinated, so allowing Grenada to have a USP of ‘the most safe summer vacation’ as each hotel grounds, tourist dock, tour operator, taxi’s, watersports, vendors, entertainers, restaurants & bars will be ‘vaccinated bubbles’.

    St Kitts PM seeking Constitutional guidance as exploring what their standard can be for keeping population most safe while restarting tourism & dollar inflow.
