The Caribbean island of St. Barts will reopen its borders to visitors who are vaccinated beginning June 9.
Visitors will still have to present negative results from a PCR COVID-19 test taken within three days of their arrival on the island. St Barts will also accept a negative antigen test taken within 48 hours of arrival on the island. Travelers will not be required to quarantine upon arrival.
The island does not have a portal for uploading health documents so travelers will need to send vaccination records directly to hotels or villas before finalizing their bookings. They may also need to show proof of vaccination when they arrive in St Barts and again upon check-in at their accommodation.
Vaccines must be approved by the European Medical Agency and include Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson. Once on the island, vaccinated visitors are free to go wherever they like.
Visitors younger than 18 can visit without vaccination and those younger than 10 will not have to undergo testing.
Looking forward to welcoming visitors back, the island's tourism board also shared with T+L that the island's signature event, the annual Gourmet Festival, will be returning in November after it was canceled last year.
Travelers are still required to undergo a COVID-19 test within three days of their return back to the U.S., according to current CDC regulations.
