Dominica updates measures for COVID-19 to facilitate entry of US travellers

The Ministry of Tourism International Transport and Maritime Initiatives has announced an updated list of measures for COVID-19 pre-arrivals entry protocols for travellers of the US-origin to Dominica with an immediate effect.

In addition to the already imposed pre-arrival safety protocols for Dominica, all completely vaccinated travellers from the US can now upload a pre-arrival negative Rapid Antigen Test report from the swab taken 48 hours before the expected arrival time into the island, which should be not less than 24 hours. The test report of the Rapid Antigen Test must be from a verified or certified facility. At the same time, no Rapid Antigen Home-done tests or self-administered test results will not be accepted.
