What Vacationing Can look Like After the Pandemic.

Some of the most important things to consider while booking your vacation these days is how will Covid-19 regulations and restrictions affect your time abroad.  So today we will be going through a few examples of how certain Caribbean islands and vacation hotbeds have adjusted the way their tourism and vacation industry procedures.

During the summer the world has seen some countries loosen travel bans and begin accepting travelers from other countries.  Some of the first islands to open over the summer was Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, and Aruba.

If you had wished to visit Anguilla when they first opened up starting on August 21st, some of the hoops that you and your fellow travelers would have to jump through include submitting for pre-registration to visit the island, you would have been required to disclose personal information such as home address, dates of travel etc., you would then have to submit a negative Covid-19 test 3-5 days before your travel and also test negative on arrival to the island.  The government of the small nation did not require mandatory mask mandates but after 10 days on the island you would have to test negative once again, and during those first ten days, you wouldn’t be able to rent a car.

Antigua and Barbuda’s regulations were somewhat different.  They did require all visitors to wear a mask at all times, they required documentation of a negative covid-19 test within 48 hours of arrival.  If this test was not able to have been performed, you would then have the choice to either spend the money on a test once on the island or quarantine for 14 days.  These guidelines were similar to the ones which were implemented on the nation’s residents.

Lastly, Aruba first opened its doors exclusively to travelers from the Caribbean, Europe and Canada.   This list did not include the United States but later changed with regulations different state by state.  The nation was similar to the other two listed when it comes to testing negative the virus before arrival, the time frame being 72 hours for this island in particular.  On May 25th the island started opening outdoor restaurants with their cleaning and hygiene certification program.  This was put in place to reassure foreigners upon their arrival.

With the world regulations regarding Covid-19 starting to ease up now that there has been positive movement in regard to a vaccine, it is important to do your research before booking a vacation to the beautiful island which you visited before the lockdown.  If you’d like help doing this research or simply have any questions regarding your next vacation just send us a message and we would be happy to help!
