The lowering of the rank which was at Level 3 means that the island is no longer under an “avoid nonessential travel” warning. The island has been welcoming tourists back to its shores with a carefully executed phased reopening of the tourism sector, however, ports still remain closed to cruise liners.

CDC recommends older adults, people of any age with certain underlying medical conditions, and others at increased risk for severe illness talk to their health care providers before travelling to Saint Lucia.

According to the island’s protocol for travel, “all arriving passengers including travellers from within the Designated Travel Bubble must have a negative result from a PCR test taken no more than 7 days before arriving in Saint Lucia. All persons entering Saint Lucia (including persons arriving from within the “Travel Bubble”) must complete a Pre-Arrival Travel Registration Form to ensure your efficient and expedited processing on arrival.”
