Please see the official travel protocols below for visiting Barbados during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It is now mandatory for all persons travelling to Barbados from High and Medium-Risk countries to have a negative COVID-19 test result in order to enter the country. These tests must be taken at an accredited or certified facility/ laboratory within 72 hours prior to arrival. Persons travelling from Low-Risk countries are strongly advised to take a COVID-19 PCR test before arrival in order to expedite processing through the airport. These persons will be allowed to present results of tests taken up to 5 days prior to arrival. Relevant accrediting bodies and standards include ISO:15189, CAP, UKAS or the equivalent.


Travellers are required to complete the online Immigration and Customs Form which will be available 72 hours prior to your arrival in Barbados.
