You can go on holiday to St Lucia with us from 21st May 2021.
St Lucia is an amber list destination
When you travel to an amber list country, you’re required to take an antigen (rapid flow) test before you return to the UK and two PCR tests once you’re home. You’re also required to self-isolate at home for 10 days – unless you opt in to the Test to Release scheme. If you won’t be able to self-isolate on your return home, you’ll be able to change your booking to another date or destination for free up to 14 days before your departure date. If your destination changes from the green to the amber colour category within 14 days of your departure date, you’ll also be able to change your booking for free. Just so you know, there may also be separate entry requirements set by the country you’re travelling to.
