Recently, UK gave place to St Kitts and Nevis on the green list for tourism.

St Kitts and Nevis- The Caribbean hotspot has been seeing a steady decrease in coronavirus case numbers, and the nature of it being an island could play in its favour.

The green list and green watchlists are the most tempting options, as they don’t require any self-isolation or quarantine when you’re back in the UK, as well as only needing to take one PCR test.

PM Harris continually encourages people to get vaccinated themselves, and he also lauds UK assistance to SKN during the pandemic. 

Notably, St Kitts and Nevis share a long history of colonial activity and later diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom.

While the late 17th century, France and England battled for control over Saint Kitts. It was ceded to Britain in 1713. SKN, along with Anguilla, became an associated state with full regional autonomy in 1967.

Anguillians rebelled, and were segregated from the others in 1971. Saint Kitts and Nevis achieved independence in 1983.

Saint Kitts and Nevis maintain a High Commission in South Kensington in London. In turn, the UK maintains a High Commission in Bridgetown, Barbados, which also serves as High Commission to Saint Kitts & Nevis.

SKN is a dual-island nation situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It’s known for cloud-shrouded mountains plus beaches. Numerous of its former sugar plantations are now inns or atmospheric ruins. The larger of the two islands, Saint Kitts, is overshadowed by the dormant Mount Liamuiga volcano, home to a crater lake, green vervet monkeys also rainforest crisscrossed with the hiking trails.
