St. Kitts is a great place to visit. There are many gorgeous beaches, beautiful sceneries, and numerous other attractions. Many cruise ships have scheduled stops where passengers have the chance to enjoy outdoor adventures and visit the local attractions. Definitely, an attractive place for everyone to enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of the Caribbean.
Beginning Dec. 11, 2021, fully vaccinated foreign tourists, nationals, and residents arriving by flight into St. Kitts and Nevis will no longer be needed to undergo PCR testing or the destination’s Vacation in Place 24-hour quarantine. In addition, fully vaccinated cruise passengers arriving at Port Zante Charlestown or South Friars may be allowed to “fully integrate” into St. Kitts and Nevis government officials said.
Only vaccinated visitors are allowed to visit Saint Kitts and Nevis. Children 12 years of age and older will also need to be fully vaccinated. Citizens, residents, and non-vaccinated children under 12 traveling with fully-vaccinated parents or guardians are exempted from this rule.
A traveler is considered fully vaccinated when two weeks have passed since receiving their second dose of a two-dose vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, or AstraZeneca/Oxford) or two weeks after the traveler has received a single dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson’s/Janssen).
According to Lindsay F.P. Grant, the Minister of Tourism, Transport and Ports of Saint Kitts and Nevis.
“The end of our Vacation in Place protocol for Air Travelers and Free Flow for Cruise passengers are major achievements in our phased approach to tourism recovery in the Covid 19 Pandemic. We will maintain all tourism protocols through travel-approved certification for both air and cruise passengers. All stakeholders must be vaccinated to operate travel-approved taxi/tours, attractions, excursions, restaurants, bars, or provide vendor services such as hair braiding. We are confident that our continued focus on a phased reopening will enable a meaningful rebound of the industry.”
Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, added, “The evolution of our protocols and the end of our Vacation in Place quarantine will make St. Kitts and Nevis even more competitive for travelers planning trips for 2022. With seamless integration into the Federation, travelers can enjoy our quintessential Caribbean experiences that engage the senses.”
