Anguilla’s Covid Requirements Are Easing: More Joy / Less Restrictions

Good morning,As a delightfully quick follow up to my previous newsletter that  announced Anguilla’s access and stay restrictions would soon be eased, please see the below confirming the easing that has been approved–as such Anguilla continues to move forward sensibly and respectfully, two hallmarks of the society in general.  Please let me know how I can assist as we all move forward together–a pleasure to be of service.

ANGUILLA UPDATES PUBLIC HEALTH PROTOCOLS FOR VISITORS

*Application Fees And Stay In Place Requirements To Be Reduced

For Fully Vaccinated Persons*
The Valley, Anguilla, April 13th, 2021: Anguilla’s Executive Council has approved a COVID 19 Exit Strategy, comprising a series of revised entry protocols, some of which will become effective immediately, while others will be introduced in phases over the coming months. The strategy is designed to safely transition the island from this extended period of economic contraction towards generating the business activity needed to revitalize the economy.
Effective April 12th, the following protocols will apply:
• The stay in place mandate for international travelers who are fully vaccinated, with the final dose administered at least three weeks (21 days) prior to arrival, is reduced from 14 days to 7 days.

• Persons will still be required to submit a test 3 – 5 days prior to their arrival, be tested on arrival and at the end of the quarantine period.

• Multi-generational families and/or groups with a mix of unvaccinated and vaccinated persons will all have to quarantine for a 10-day period, utilizing only approved short stay services.

• The Entry Application Fee for fully vaccinated visitors staying under 90 days in a villa or hotel is US$300 per individual, and $200 for each additional person.

• The Entry Application Fee for fully vaccinated returning residents or visitors who are staying in an approved private dwelling home is US$300 per individual, and $200 for each additional person.

• The Entry Application Fee for unvaccinated returning residents or visitors who are staying in an approved private dwelling home is US$600 per individual, and $200 for each additional person.
Effective May 1st, the following protocols will apply:
• Spa, gym and cosmetology services will be allowed if both guests and staff therapists/consultants are fully vaccinated, i.e. three weeks have passed since the final dose of an approved vaccine.

• All front line hospitality workers, along with port and transportation staff are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination (first dose by May 1).

Effective July 1st:
Anguilla will remove the fee and quarantine requirements for visitors who are fully vaccinated at least three weeks before arrival.

The entry protocols will be further revised in Phases, leading to the elimination of all requirements by October 1st, 2021.
Phase 1 runs from July 1st through August 31st, 2021:

• All visitors to Anguilla who are eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19, are required to be fully vaccinated at least three weeks before arrival (i.e. persons 18 and older).

• Fully vaccinated persons will not be tested upon arrival.

• Persons with evidence of full COVID-19 vaccination will not be required to quarantine on arrival if the final vaccine dose is administered at least three weeks before date of arrival.

• All persons entering Anguilla will be required to produce a negative COVID-19 test 3-5 days before entry.

• Multi-generational families and/or groups with a mix of individuals who are not eligible for the vaccine (i.e. children), will not need to quarantine, but they will need a negative PCR test 3-5 days ahead of arrival, and may be tested on arrival and subsequently during their stay.

• Unvaccinated returning residents will be required to:

– Produce a negative COVID-19 test 3-5 days prior to arrival

– Submit to a COVID-19 test on arrival

– Quarantine for 10 days in approved accommodation
Phase 2 runs from September 1st through September 30th, 2021

• Unvaccinated returning residents will be required to:

– Submit to a COVID-19 test on arrival

– Quarantine for 7 days in approved accommodation
Phase 3 comes into effect on October 1st, 2021:

• The travel authorization application for entry will be removed.

• It will be the duty of all transport operators to ensure that their passengers have all the necessary documentation for entry including:

– Evidence of completed COVID-19 vaccinations

– Pre-arrival test for unvaccinated returning residents

• All Phase 2 provisions for unvaccinated persons remain in place.
