Anguilla Set to Reopen International Travel on May 25
After suffering a temporary setback that saw the re-closure of its borders, Anguilla will once again be reopening to visitors on May 25.
The island was forced to close to tourists for a month after a cluster of COVID-19 cases was identified on April 22. With the outbreak now successfully contained, coupled with ongoing vaccination efforts, the Government of Anguilla has reduced the quarantine period to seven days for visitors who are fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated means having the last dose of vaccine administered at least three weeks before arrival on the island.
“We suffered a temporary setback when we had to close our borders on April 22,” said the Parliamentary Secretary Tourism, Quincia Gumbs-Marie. “We acted swiftly and implemented a number of proactive measures to manage and contain this cluster of infections, along with an expanded vaccination outreach. The result is that we are confident we can now safely reopen while protecting the health of our residents and visitors.”
