The Barbados Consul in the Cayman Islands is organising a round trip charter direct to Barbados on December 20 to 2020, to return on January 2 2021.
The flight will be evacuating persons who wish to leave the Cayman Islands but is open to anyone who wishes to either go to Barbados on vacation or persons wishing to go in transit to other neighbouring islands.
Anyone who is interested can email Barbados Consul at Barbcon2@gmail.com for further information.
Interested persons will be placed on a waitlist and once all the details are confirmed they will be invited to confirm their reservations.
Cayman has been added to Barbados' list of countries considered to be high risk for COVID-19. This means that all persons entering Barbados must declare their recent travel history and must submit a recent negative PCR test. The test must be taken at an accredited or certified facility within three days before arrival.
Based on the risk assessment by the Ministry of Health and Wellness, if travellers are unable to receive their test results in time for their trip, they will be able to take a test on arrival in Barbados and remain in quarantine until they receive a negative test result.
Once the test is negative, they can proceed to their pre-approved accommodation and will be retested after four to five days of restricted movement at their property. Visitors can proceed to enjoy their holidays once they have received a negative result and been cleared by health officials.
Monitoring will include daily self-temperature checks and sharing that information with the public health teams who will check in via call or text. Monitoring is generally seven days after arrival or the length of stay, whichever is shorter. Visitors are also urged to travel with their own thermometer.
The Barbados Consul is requesting a response from all interested persons by November 11.
