Mandatory quarantine for travellers to Grenada from high-risk regions
Travellers flying to Grenada from COVID-19 high-risk countries where transmission is widespread will be subject to mandatory quarantine up to 14 days.
Passengers from those countries, arriving only on chartered flights until further notice, would also be required to have proof of a negative PCR test taken no more than seven days prior to arrival and would have to take a PCR test within 48 hours of arrival into the Spice isle.
Grenada's borders will reopen to regional traffic from July 12 and to international travel from August 1.
As the tri-island state (Grenada, Carricaou and Petit Martinique) gets set to reopen, the Government has categorised countries as low, medium and high-risk for entry into the island.
The protocols are outlined in the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation Protocols for Travellers into Grenada,
Low refers to those travellers coming from countries such as Caribbean countries where there is no community transmission or the epidemiology is considered favourable or low-risk. Those travellers will be subjected to a rapid test upon arrival to Grenada. If the test is positive they will have to take a swab/PCR test and stay in quarantine at their own expense until the results are available.
Medium refers to countries and regions with active but manageable transmissions such as Canada, the UK and some EU countries. All passengers must have proof of a negative PCR test not more than seven days old and a Rapid Test must be taken upon arrival.
If the test is positive they will have to take a swab/PCR test and stay in quarantine at their own expense until the results are available.
While the first tests are free, additional Rapid Tests cost US$30 while an additional PCR test cost US$150.
State-approved quarantine cost US$50 and does not include meals. Travellers must bear the cost of their quarantine.
All travellers to Grenada are required to download and use a contact-tracing app or face a penalty of EC$1000 fine or one year in prison.
Grenada presently has no active cases of COVID-19 since June 18 with only 23 positive cases recorded.
The tri-island curfew was lifted on July 8.
