Anguilla is easing traveler entry protocols by waiving online travel authorization requirements for fully vaccinated travelers ages 18 and over, said Anguilla Tourist Board officials in a statement.

Citing new Ministry of Health guidelines issued in accordance with the country’s “evolving Covid-19 exit strategy,” effective April 1 vaccinated travelers are no longer required to apply for permission to enter Anguilla via the travel portal.

Visitors arriving in Anguilla will still be required to present evidence of their Covid immunization status with an approved vaccine and proof of a negative RT-PCR Covid-19 test result obtained within three days of travel or a rapid antigen test taken within two days of travel.

Additionally, Anguilla will eliminate arrival testing for visitors who have been fully vaccinated within the last six months, and for persons who’ve received a booster dose where completion of the primary, full vaccination series occurred six months or more prior to arrival. A valid negative test result must be presented prior to arrival, ATB officials said.

Vaccinated adults and minors who received a full primary course more than six months prior to arrival but have not received a booster dose are still considered fully vaccinated and will not need to apply for entry via the Anguilla portal. ATB officials say such visitors will be subject to testing on arrival for a $50 per person fee. These travelers must also present a negative Covid-19 test result prior to arrival.

Travelers arriving in Anguilla without appropriate documentation (including proof of vaccination and test results) will be required to return to their country of origin. Guests who are unable to return immediately will be required to complete arrival and exit tests, and quarantine for five days at their own expense.

Each quarantine visitor will be charged a fee of $200 in addition to any fines for unapproved entry. Unvaccinated visitors who are granted a medical exemption will be required to apply for entry on the Anguilla portal, test on arrival, quarantine for five days and receive a negative test result to exit quarantine as well as pay a $100 per-person fee.
