St. Lucia Entry Requirements
Sandals Grande St. Lucian

There are a number of lush and exotic all-inclusive resorts to experience in St. Lucia, but first – you have to get there.

In a nutshell: Effective July 9, 2020, all arriving passengers to St. Lucia must take a PCR test (polymerase chain reaction diagnostic test) and receive a negative result within 7-days of travel.  Exception: Visitors within the Caribbean bubble.

Upon Arrival:

  • All arriving passengers are to be screened, including temperature checks
  • All arriving passengers must have a negative result from a PCR test done within 7 days of travel
  • All symptomatic passengers to be isolated and tested
  • All passengers who test positive for COVID-19 to be transferred to Respiratory Hospital for treatment and care at their cost
  • Other passengers to be transferred to approved COVID-19 accommodation/ government quarantine site/home quarantine

Note: Passengers arriving with proof of a negative PCR test may be exempt from on-island testing and advance through immigration, baggage claim, customs, and arrivals for transportation to their COVID-19 certified hotel.

In addition, visitors must also complete a Pre-arrival Registration Form BEFORE Arrival.

Certified Resorts

The COVID-19 Certification process allows resorts to reopen in St. Lucia.

Additional hotels will continue to be certified and we’ll update you with the announcements, however, there are more resorts that have been added including Ladera Resort, Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain, and Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort.  The original four resorts that were certified include all-inclusive Sandals Grande St. Lucian.  Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa, Stonefield Resort Villas, and Sugar Beach – A Viceroy Resort, all offer an all-inclusive add-on package.

There’s also new signage at the airport and QR codes to help direct visitors to further information.
