Anguilla has relaxed the rules for the entry of foreigners into the country

The pre-departure testing requirement for vaccinated travelers will be lifted as early as next month.

The Caribbean island of Anguilla will no longer require pre-test results for COVID-19 from vaccinated foreigners. This will happen in less than three weeks.

Starting August 8, vaccinated tourists will no longer need to take a coronavirus test to enter the island, according to the Anguilla Tourism Board. Travelers will only be asked to show proof of their vaccination status before checking in for a flight, and then again upon arrival in Anguilla and nearby Saint Martin.

In addition, the island will allow entry to the unvaccinated on the condition that they can present a negative test result for COVID-19.

Anguilla currently requires all visitors to the country to be fully vaccinated, according to the Tourism Board. An exception is made only for unvaccinated children under the age of 18, and even then only if they are accompanied by fully vaccinated adults.

Even vaccinated foreigners are now required to present a fresh negative PCR test or a rapid antigen test.

Anguilla does not require additional testing upon arrival for travelers who have been fully vaccinated within six months or received a booster dose at least 14 days before travel. So-called “mixed vaccines” are allowed.

Earlier this year, the Anguilla authorities removed the mandatory “application for permission to enter the island” through an online travel portal. It was filled in by all foreigners over the age of 18.

The island has warm comfortable weather all year round, and the peak of the tourist season falls from December-mid-April.
