Dominica revises COVID-19 country risk classification; Barbados now in high risk category


The Government of Dominica has taken a responsible decision to revise the COVID-19 Country Risk Classifications for travel from the CARICOM Travel Bubble, Low, Medium and High-Risk Countries.

Effective January 6th, 2021, Barbados has been reclassified to the HIGH-RISK classification. Travellers from Barbados to Dominica must submit the online health screening form and submit a negative PCR test where swabs were taken within 24-72 hours of arrival into Dominica. Upon exiting the port of entry, travellers will submit to a quarantine period of up to 7 days where a PCR test is taken on day 5 after arrival and results are expected within 24-48 hours. Travellers must submit themselves to mandatory quarantine and may opt to quarantine at the Government operated facility or at a Safe in Nature certified property under a ‘Managed Experience’.

The Safe in Nature Commitment and Managed Experiences are available to all visitors, including guests from high risk classified countries visiting Dominica. More information about the Safe in Nature Commitment and Managed Experiences and a complete listing of the risk classification of countries is available at https://discoverdominica.com/travel-advisory-for-dominica.

Discover Dominica Authority continues to work with Health Officials to ensure the safety and security of visitors to the island, and with Tourism stakeholders to ensure a unique managed experience in a responsible manner.

    That’s ‘strange’. Hmmmmm……..

    Did Mia Mottley & the network of Bajan handlers and advisers of Roosevelt Skerrit grant Skerrit permission to make this move? 8-O 8-O 8-O

    Seriously, this classification system is stupid when everyone mixes at the airport and on the plane. Just classfify everyone as high risk and put the health of the Dominican people first – before tourism.
