Dominica places St Lucia in COVID-19 high-risk category of travellers

The Government of Dominica has now placed Saint. Lucia in the high-risk category of travellers.

This as the Government revised the COVID-19 Country Risk Classifications for travel from the CARICOM Travel Bubble, Low, Medium and High-Risk Countries.

The new classification came into effect on November 18.

Saint Lucia currently has 141 active cases of COVID-19 according to Worldometer.

Travellers from St. Lucia to Dominica must submit the online health screening form and submit a Negative PCR test where swabs were taken within 24-72 hours of arrival into Dominica. 

Upon exiting the port of entry, travellers will submit to a quarantine period of up to seven days where a PCR test is taken on day five after arrival and results are expected within 24-48 hours.

Travellers must submit themselves to mandatory quarantine and may opt to quarantine at the Government operated facility or at a Safe in Nature Certified property under a ‘Managed Experience’.

The Safe in Nature Commitment and Managed Experiences are available to all visitors, including guests from high risk classified countries visiting Dominica.

More information about the Safe in Nature Commitment and Managed Experiences and a complete listing of the risk classification of countries is available at https://discoverdominica.com/travel-advisory-for-dominica.
