St. Kitts & Nevis Scraps COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Protocols

The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis has scrapped all COVID-19 related entry testing and vaccination protocols. The destination is open to both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers, including citizens, residents and international tourists.

Additionally, it will no longer be necessary for travelers to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test to enter St. Kitts and Nevis. This change has been introduced under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Terrance Drew, the prime minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, who also serves as minister of health.

“The removal of entry testing and vaccination requirements comes at a time when traveler confidence is on the rise. The combination of increasing demand and more seamless travel processes will make St. Kitts even more desirable to visitors abroad,” said Ellison “Tommy” Thompson, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority. “We are pleased to communicate the removal of restrictions, which would improve the destination’s travel experience.”

Good to know: Travelers considering a last-minute escape can book until August 30 and avail of St. Kitts’ summer promotion, “Sweet Side of Summer,” offering up to three nights free at participating hotels. Guests can enjoy a range of cultural, relaxation, culinary and outdoor adventure activities. The “St. Kitts annual Grill Fest” will be held in November, showcasing local grill masters, and F&B experiences.
