Grenada Updates Testing Protocols

Grenada this week announced updates to its travel protocols, requiring fully vaccinated travelers to show proof of a negative PCR or NAAT test from within three days of travel to the island or, now, a negative rapid antigen test taken within one day of arrival.

Travelers must still, prior to travel, fill out a Health Declaration Form. They must also bring their original vaccine card in English. Travelers will also, upon arrival, undergo a health screening (comprising a symptom review and temperature check); no testing will be required unless deemed necessary by the health officials performing the screening. Once on the island, all visitors must wear a face mask in public.

For unvaccinated travelers, they must complete the above Health Declaration form, book a Government Approved/Pure Safe Travel Property and pay for a PCR test to be taken on Day 5 (of their seven-day quarantine).

Children 12 and over must show their own proof of vaccination; children under 12 will be exempt from the vaccination requirement. Adults traveling in a group where some are vaccinated and other are not, and choose not to separate, will all be treated as unvaccinated.

In November, the island removed its 48-hour quarantine upon arrival for travelers an announced the PCT and NAAT testing protocols.

Separately, the Grenada Tourism Authority debuted its “Simple Stays Grenada” campaign to bring awareness to the islands’ range of boutique hotels and villas. Currently, 16 properties across Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique are part of the promotion.
