Visitors to Antigua & Barbuda to require PCR test four days before travel, down from seven


The Cabinet of Antigua & Barbuda has accepted a recommendation to change the testing period for tourists from 7 days to 4.

Information Minister Melford Nicholas says the recommendation was made by the Antigua and Barbuda Hotels and Tourism Association.

In a press release the ABHTA said; “The ABHTA will also be seeking an audience with the policy makers to recommend a reduction in the testing period for travel to the destination.  Currently all travelers must present a PCR Test within seven (7) days of travel.

A proposed reduction to three (3) days with the acceptance of a Rapid Antigen Test for Vaccinated travelers will also be tabled in the discussion.”
