Can You Travel To Antigua & Barbuda?

Only tests administered by health care professionals are valid. Home tests are not permitted.

Further health screening is in place at VC Bird International Airport and the private jet terminal for all international arrivals. Passengers must complete a Health Declaration Form and will be subject to temperature checks by Port Health Authorities.

In practice, tourists arriving with pre-booked hotel accommodation from the Government of Antigua and Barbuda’s Approved List will normally be permitted to travel to their accommodation after screening (including COVID tests) and be allowed to move around the country providing they adhere to local social distancing measures. This is regardless of their vaccination status.

Arriving passengers who are allowed to stay in their private homes or at a government facility will be required to wear a monitoring bracelet according to the Quarantine Authority regulations.

Additional measures are subject to change but may include mandatory temperature, travel history checks, a check on whether your accommodation is on the Government of Antigua and Barbuda’s Approved List and completion of a Health Declaration Form. You should expect long waiting times on arrival.

All passengers arriving on or after 1 June will be tested for COVID on arrival in Antigua and Barbuda by health officials. This test must be paid for. This travel advice will be updated on cost and payment methods once confirmed by the government of Antigua and Barbuda.

Travelling To Antigua & Barbuda FAQs

Advice and answers from the Corona Test Centre Team

What do the three colours of the UK’s ‘Traffic Light System’ for travel mean?

  • Red: You must pay for a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test) and two PCR tests upon return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8).
  • Amber: You will need to quarantine for 10 days, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and two PCR tests on return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8). When you return to the UK,  you can take a test on Day 5 (Test to Release) to leave quarantine early.
  • Green: You will not need to quarantine on return, but you must take a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and a PCR test on return to the UK on Day 2.


How will the government decide which countries go on the green, amber or red lists?

Countries are assigned to the three lists, based on a range of Covid-19 health metrics, which include figures on population vaccination, infection rates and prevalence of variants. The different traffic light colours indicate the risk in each destination and the associated tests and quarantine periods required. Lists are reassessed every three weeks, to account for changes in each country’s COVID-19 situation.
