People travelling from Dominica to England will benefit from a grace period which has been put in place following the introduction of mandatory pre-departure testing for all inbound passengers to England from Friday 15 January 2021.
The Department for Transport has confirmed that a grace period is in place until Monday 18 January for travellers whose journey originates in Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis and St Vincent and the Grenadines. Passengers from these countries arriving in England before Monday morning will be allowed entry without a negative COVID-19 test.
A release from the British High Commission in Barbados also states that exemptions are still in place until Thursday 21 January, 0400 GMT (12:00 AM local time), to help travellers in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and St Lucia return to England without a negative COVID-19 test. This decision reflects current infrastructure challenges in these countries, including limited COVID-19 testing capacity and heightened demand for tests.
