● Unvaccinated visitors/arrivals no longer need to quarantine or stay at a COVID-certified property.
● Unvaccinated visitors aged five years or older require a negative standard PCR Covid-test result (taken five days prior to travel) to enter Saint Lucia.
● Once in Saint Lucia, unvaccinated visitors are free to explore and take part in all tours and excursions.

It was confirmed earlier this year that fully vaccinated travellers are not required to take a pre-travel COVID-19 test or quarantine. Vaccinated travellers must provide a valid vaccination record as requested on check-in, boarding, and entry to Saint Lucia. To qualify as fully vaccinated, travellers have to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic with two doses of the vaccine or a one-dose vaccine at least two weeks (14 days) before travel.

As per the report from the government of Saint Lucia, More than 90 percent of arriving visitors to the country are fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic.

For unvaccinated travellers, an unsupervised self-swab antigen or PCR test is not accepted. Passengers who are arriving without tests or with the wrong type of test will have to go through the test for the second time on arrival at their own cost and will be required to remain in isolation until the test result is known.
