The CDC recently listed the twin-island nation as a COVID-19 low risk destination and designated it as “No Travel Notice” required. St Kitts and Nevis have had only 19 cases of the COVID-19 virus, no community spread and 0 deaths.

“We have been working diligently to prepare for this reopening to ensure that we are ready to welcome travelers by training and certifying local businesses and individuals in the health and safety protocols they are required to meet and be certified in to be permitted to operate,” said the Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant, Minister of Tourism, Transport and Ports. “This is particularly important as we encourage visitors to explore our islands beyond their hotels to experience what makes us a unique, authentic and quintessential Caribbean experience.”

The Hon. Mark Brantley, Minister of Foreign Affairs & Aviation, added, “The genuinely friendly people of St. Kitts & Nevis are a key component of our tourism product, so the protocols we have established aim to provide for their safety in interacting with visitors as well as visitors’ safety in interacting with our people. It is critical to travelers’ perceptions of St. Kitts & Nevis as a safe and desirable destination of choice as well as to citizens and residents own safety in embracing their return.”

As St Kitts and Nevis continues to ready for the reopening on October 31, 2020, there will be ongoing consultation with the Chief Medical Officer and Ministry of Health to further develop and implement health and safety protocols for the industry. This of course is to ensure the well-being and health of all citizens, residents and visitors.

In fact, for business to reopen, tourism industry businesses, employers and employees must undergo “Travel Approved” training for their respective sector/business/department and upon completion of the training they receive the “Travel Approved” Certification and Seal. The “Travel Approved” Certification and Seal provides assurance to citizens, residents and visitors the destination is ensuring health and safety protocols are not compromised in St. Kitts & Nevis and can be trusted.

    We are thrilled that borders will open soon. We are US citizens and have a home on St. Kitts that we have missed very much visiting, as well as seeing all of our St. Kitts friends. Thank you for opening the borders and let’s all be diligent in distancing, wearing masks and washing our hands often!

    What are the latest restrictions? We have rented a villa in the Turtle Beach area for a month beginning Jan 23rd. Is our trip in jeopardy?
