ST LUCIA NEWS ONLINE: Home Affairs Minister Guy Mayers met with United Kingdom visa officials on Tuesday.

Recently, the British Government gave the St. Lucian Government six months to prove that it is taking steps to address a number of concerns outlined by the British officials, or risk losing the current visa free status into the UK.

A decision to consider imposing visa restrictions on St. Lucia, and Dominica as well is part of the UK’s Visa Waiver Test regime, which began since 2008. This review of Eastern Caribbean countries represents the final stage of the UK’s first global review of visa regimes in relation to the seven countries.
