Anguilla COVID-19 Prevention & Entry Protocols

If You are Fully-Vaccinated:

Show proof of your vaccination status to your aircraft and/or boat company and again at arrival and you are ready to explore!

Fully-vaccinated means you received the final dose of an accepted, primary, COVID-19 vaccine more than 14 days prior to arrival. A booster is not required. 

Everyone Else:

If you are unvaccinated or not fully-vaccinated, you will be able to enter Anguilla with a valid, negative COVID-19 test. 

Test must be a PCR or NAA test taken within 3 days of arrival OR a Rapid Antigen test taken no more than 2 days before arrival, and will be presented to your airline, boat company, and again at arrival and then you are ready to explore!

Your test date is considered Day 0. Test result must specify the name of the accredited laboratory/clinic, your full name, test type, collection date and indicate administered by nasopharyngeal swab. Self-administered/home testing kits (including video proctored) and antibody tests are NOT accepted.

Exception: NOT fully-vaccinated visitors 5 years of age and under are not required to present a negative COVID-19 test taken pre-travel, but if one is not presented, the child will be tested at arrival and have to wait for a negative result. We recommend securing before you arrive.

Please confirm procedures for providing evidence of vaccination or negative test with your airline.

 

Our Peace-of-Mind Policy if You Test Positive Pre-Arrival & Can't Enter Anguilla 

If you are not approved for entry to Anguilla due to a positive result on a valid, eligible COVID-19 test taken the appropriate number of days prior to arrival (test type and timing meets all Anguilla requirements), please email us a copy of your positive test results at least 24 hours prior to your check in date. Even though it is past the free cancellation window, we will hold the value of your booking as a credit that you must use within 12 months of your original check out date. Any funds not used by that deadline are forfeited. Does not guarantee same unit or nightly rate as original booking, and subject to availability. Trip Insurance is also recommended.  Offer not available for bookings made through certain third party channels (for example Airbnb, VRBO, etc.) that have other cancellation policies. Please consult the cancellation policy information provided to you by the channel you used at the time you booked. 

 

If You are Traveling to Anguilla Through St. Maarten

 As a separate country, St. Maarten has its own set of entry requirements which are different than Anguilla. Visit: https://stmaartenehas.com/application-form/. You can start your application process to St. Maarten as early as 3 days before you arrive in St. Maarten.  If you are not overnighting in St. Maarten then you will indicate 0 nights in St. Maarten, arriving in St. Maarten from your previous destination and departing St. Maarten for Anguilla the same day you arrive. If you are traveling through St. Maarten after your stay in Anguilla, you will need to apply for entry to St. Maarten again (as early as 3 days before you arrive in St. Maarten). This time you will indicate you are arriving in St. Maarten from Anguilla and departing from St. Maarten for your next destination the same day you arrive.

As an alternative to traveling through St. Maarten, there are direct flights to and from Anguilla's airport (AXA) from Miami, St. Thomas, St. Barth's, Antigua and Puerto Rico. Private planes of certain sizes are also welcome in Anguilla.

 

If You Test Positive During Stay

Should a Guest receive a positive test result or exhibit other signs of the COVID-19 virus, typically the Guest will be retested the following day to rule out a false positive. Subject to test result, the Ministry of Health will determine if Guest should be escalated to a medical facility, otherwise the Guest will stay-in place and isolate in their condominium (if test positive cannot use the beach or gym) until cleared by the MOH. Should Guests be required to extend their stay at the Resort beyond original check out date as a result of receiving consecutive positive test results, Guests will be responsible for paying the published nightly rate + government tax at time of stay and 10% service charge for all additional nights. If stay in current unit cannot be extended due to another booking, our staff will work with the Guests to move them to another unit at the Resort or alternative accommodations. All units are deep-cleaned and thoroughly disinfected before the next guest arrives. Although no housekeeping services can be provided during the isolation period, all necessary food and beverage, cleaning and medical supplies can be arranged and delivered contactless to the Guest (additional charge). Cleaning supplies, clean linens and trash removal will of course be provided by the Resort. Any violation of any of these stipulations is subject to government fines and/or legal action. Trip insurance that includes trip interruption/delay and medical coverage for COVID-19 related expenses is the responsibility of the traveler and always recommended in today's travel environment. You may be able to purchase through your airline or be convered by your credit card company. 

 

Onward Testing Available

If you need an onward test for your next (for example St. Maarten) or final destination, we can arrange (additional fee). Please let us know your travel schedule and requirements before your stay so we can schedule accordingly. Tests can usually be administered onsite at the resort. 

 

Travel protocols are subject to change at anytime and can be confirmed with the Ministry of Health.
