Nevis Tourism Authority announces lifting of entry protocols
The world continues to open up: the Caribbean island of Nevis recently announced that it has lifted all destination entry requirements effective the second week of August. Updates to existing protocols have been put in place following the appointment of Dr Terrance Drew as the new Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis.
“We are thrilled to take this crucial step to fully open Nevis’ borders to the world,” said Devon Liburd, CEO of Nevis Tourism Authority. “Removing these protocols will allow us to further share our rich culture and offerings to visitors coming to the island.”
With the new laws in place, all covid protocols for inbound passengers, whether domestic or non-domestic, have been removed completely, meaning visitors from around the world will not need to present a COVID test- 19 negative for entry, proof of vaccination or quarantine on arrival. All inbound passengers are required to complete and submit a customs and immigration ED card online to facilitate transit through the St. Kitts and Nevis border management agency. Travelers will not receive entry approval after completing the form, as it is no longer required.Following his official appointment, the destination’s prime minister announced that his cabinet would scrap the laws and protocols established during the pandemic in order to open the country to tourists and visitors from around the world. Protocols were put in place for the first time in 2020 to ensure the safety of residents and visitors. The Nevis Tourism Authority and the Government will continue to work together to promote the destination and showcase its rich heritage and culture through various events throughout the year while ensuring the safety of locals and travellers.
