Changes in testing protocols for travelers to Dominica to take effect from April 4th

Effective April 4th, 2022, pre-arrival testing and testing on arrival in Dominica for vaccinated passengers have been removed.

That’s according to a statement from the Ministry of Tourism.

“Travelers will no longer be required to fill and submit the pre-travel form online,” the statement said.

It further stated that children 12 and under, will assume the status of parents or guardian.

Testing on arrival for unvaccinated travelers has been removed but “pre-arrival testing for unvaccinated travelers remains in place,” the statement added.

Testing on arrival  for symptomatic travelers will remain in effect.

“Travelers who test positive, will be isolated in keeping with local isolation protocols,” the statement said.

Meantime, according to the Ministry of Tourism statement, for the cruise ship sector, all vaccinated passengers will be allowed to disembark and tour freely in keeping with established cruise ship and port protocols.

However, the Ministry is insisting that cruise sector workers (taxi drivers, vendors, tour guides) must be vaccinated or present a negative 48-hour Antigen Test result and Safe In Nature pass.

    Looking at the photo – Cruise ship berth is ripe for an expansion towards the fort young hotel and the library also to wards the ferry terminal and new market and have the cruise village out there. Like the ferry terminal over the water – platform made of stone masonry (solid engineered built outside on the sea). On there we could have a few permanently built shops facing the sea with a welcome to Dominica sign visible from the sea.The public works area should be used for port expansion to include coast guard base etc. and the new hotel to move to past the library in New town (the old infant school – I do not know what is there now) the young man should negotiate for purchase of this for the hotel he would have actual waterfront where he could have a real salt water pool and with the cruise ship berth expansion. Preparation for international airport and a port embarkation to cruises or disembarkation over night stays. The street food etc on there old market sitting spot landscaped
