Share The Article

Last Updated

Anguilla, a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean, reopened for tourism in August. Here's everything you need to know about their current entry requirements and rules for visiting. 

Anguilla is a very unique nation because as of December 2020, they have only seen 10 total cases since the beginning of the pandemic. 

While they have reopened for tourists to visit for vacation purposes, their strict entry requirements are one of the reasons they have been less affected than some other Caribbean islands.

COVID-19 Testing Entry Requirements 

Testing required. 

Anguilla requires a series of PCR tests be done for all incoming tourists, starting before arrival. 

5-Days Before Arrival

All passengers must perform a PCR test, taken no longer than 5 days before arrival into Aguilla, and show the negative result to customs. 

Testing on Arrival

All passengers will also receive a test on arrival at the airport in Anguilla. Results will be made in 2-24 hours. The passenger will have to quarantine in their room until results are available. After a negative result, they can use the hotel's public facilities and some guided movement tours. 

Day 10 or 14

If the tourist is staying longer than the self-isolation period (10 to 14 days depending on where they came from) they will take another PCR test on the 10th or 14th day, of which a negative result will release them from all self-isolation requirements and they can move freely around the island.

Anguilla's Quarantine Entry Requirements 

Currently, visitors from lower-risk countries are only required to quarantine for 10-days, while higher-risk countries must quarantine for 14-days. 

  • Visitors from countries with less than 0.2% case rate per population = 10 days
  • Visitors from countries with more than 0.2% case rate per population = 14 days

The quarantine period is really more of a self-isolation, as in most cases tourists can use the hotel's facilities, the beach, and even some guided movement tours throughout the island. The 10-14 days restriction really applies to free movement on the island.

Nice post. Thanks for share with me

Absolutely ridiculous. I don't even travel to countries that require one test.

This whole thing is getting old I guess alot of these countries would rather have people not come on vacation. I mean having to take three tests before and during you visit. And having to pay an extra $600 on top of your flight and resort, my wife and i would not do it.

I do agree that $600 on top of all other expenses (which are already inflated in the Caribbean) is just too much. I am doubting it costs the islands this much more per visitor in additional health services, so it just seems a little off to me.
