Travel ban lifted on India and Dominican Republic


The Cabinet has decided to remove India and the Dominican Republic from the list of states whose nationals were once barred from landing in Antigua and Barbuda.

In fact, all persons who have taken the double dose or who are designated as fully vaccinated, and who have taken a negative PCR Test within 7 days of arrival on Antigua, will be allowed to proceed to their bio-secure spaces.

In the case of students, they are to proceed to their medical schools where the institutions’ strict protocols are to be obeyed.

  1. ‘its a case of when, not if, the virulent Delta (Indian origin) variant reaches A&B’ -cabinet notes 21.7.21

    So let’s welcome folks from India & Dominican Republic…. MUST THEY ARRIVE FULLY VACCINATED WITH NEG PCR TEST, QUARANTINE FOR 3 DAYS THEN RE-TEST?
    Your excerpt from Cabinet notes speaks to fully vax arrivals but doesn’t mention partially or non-vax arrivals from India/Dominican Republic.

    If India, DomRep, USA & UK are being welcomed, what about South Africans?
    Or was this recent decision based on $ and votes rather than science?

    CMO please fight for retention of mask, space, sanitize & limited numbered gatherings or A&B will quickly find itself copying UK/USA/ SE Asia / Australasia where the Delta variant is rampant & responsible for vast majority of hospitalizations.

    This pandemic is slaying people & health systems globally, it is NOT over yet.

    CDC issued red travel advisory for Florida & Nevada to Americans & International travelers.

    A&B can lose Level 1 / green light status in a heartbeat unless we manage tourism & tertiary education arrivals carefully and ALL hotels & restaurants/bars GENUINELY PRACTICE THE PROTOCOLS CONSISTENTLY.

  2. Now with the ban on India lifted. They may come into Antigua and take Choksi out without a kidnapping. Think about it folks. Because they could not lift the ban on India and not the Dominican Republic also. It would have looked to suspicious,in my opinion.
