Effective Friday, April 1, all international visitors to St. Kitts and Nevis arriving by air may show proof of either a negative COVID-19 antigen test or a negative RT-PCR test to enter the country. Antigen tests must be taken within the 24 hours prior to arrival; RT-PCR tests must be taken within the 72 hours prior to arrival. Previously, RT-PCR tests were the only option.
Note: Only fully vaccinated visitors may visit St. Kitts and Nevis. Exceptions are in place for children under 18, as well as citizens, residents and returning nationals. Children ages 11 and under who are accompanying their fully vaccinated parents or guardians take the vaccination status of their parents; unvaccinated children ages 12 to 17 must test upon arrival and vacation in place with all family members while awaiting test results.
In addition, travelers are required to fill out the embarkation form and all other supporting documentation. Fully vaccinated visitors will be required to submit a copy of their official vaccination record card, including dates when doses were administered. Further, all incoming visitors must have a hard copy of their negative RT-PCR or antigen test results and vaccination record card. Forms must be submitted no later than 24 hours prior to travel.
If the visitor’s application has not been flagged by Health Officials, visitors will be automatically processed and directed to Immigration. In the event a visitor’s application is flagged, they will undergo health screening questions and if they exhibit any COVID symptoms, the visitor will be required to take a COVID-19 test on site at the visitor’s expense.
Tip: Antigen tests are available for outbound air visitors whose countries of origin accept approved rapid testing upon return from international destinations. RT-PCR testing is also available. There is no exit testing requirement for visitors whose countries of origin do not require return testing.
