Am I required to fill out a Passenger Locator Form? TESTING REQUIREMENTS

• Anyone aged 5 and over needs to complete a COVID-19 test no more than three days before they’re due to travel to Barbados.

• Test results should be uploaded to your pre-arrival registration form and you should take a copy of the results with you. If you don’t have receipts for your form and proof of a negative test result, you won’t be allowed to board.

• All passengers will be given a health screening, including temperature checks, when they arrive at the airport in Barbados.

• When you arrive, it’s mandatory for all customers to complete a second COVID-19 test. This test needs to be carried out 4-5 days after the date of the original negative test, which usually means a few days after you arrive. For details on how to book and pay for your second test, check the country’s COVID-19 guidelines.

• Results from the second test are generally ready in 24 hours, but you’ll have to stay at your hotel until the negative results are returned to you. You’ll have limited access to facilities, and won’t be able visit the beach.

• Once your second test result is returned and negative, you will no longer need to remain in your hotel and you will have full access to its facilities and the beach.

• Health monitoring is also in place for your first seven days on the island, so you’ll need to take a thermometer with you. Public health officials will get in touch by phone or text to check on the results of daily self-temperature checks.


• You’ll need to complete a pre-arrival registration form at least 24 hours before you travel to Barbados. All passengers must complete a separate form. You’ll find the form and more information on the Immigration and Customs website.

• After completing the form, two receipts will be emailed to you – one for Immigration and one for Customs. You should save these on your mobile or print the receipts to present to Barbados’ Immigration and Customs officers.
