One week after discontinuing its curfew, the Government of Barbados is announcing a series of updates to enhance travellers’ entry process into the country.

 

Effective Saturday, 26 February 2022, travellers to Barbados will have more options with the acceptance of Rapid Antigen tests for entry, once administered by a healthcare provider no more than one day prior to arrival in Barbados. Rapid Antigen Tests are widely available in Ireland and the UK and results are typically returned within one hour.

 

Rapid Antigen Tests join the list of approved tests for entry in Barbados. Also accepted are COVID-19 PCR tests taken no more than 3 days prior to arrival in Barbados. The COVID-19 tests can be taken using samples administered by nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal, nasal, anterior nares, or mid-turbinate swabs. However, the following PCR tests will not be accepted:

  • Self-administered swabs are not accepted.
  • Shallow nasal swabs are not accepted.
  • Saliva tests are not accepted.

 

In addition, in-transit passengers will not be required to test in order to transit through Barbados.
