ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR ST. KITTS AND NEVIS
It is almost time for your trip to St. Kitts and/or Nevis! As you prepare, please be aware of the new travel requirements and entry screening process for visiting the island.
Last Updated: July 15th, 2021
Full Vaccinated Travelers:
Only fully vaccinated travelers will be allowed entry into St. Kitts & Nevis. Exemptions for Citizens and Residents. Vacation in Place period for fully vaccinated international air travelers is three days, with testing on day four and the ability to fully integrate into the Federation upon receipt of a negative test result.
With the summer family travel season beginning considerations have been made for families traveling with children. Non-vaccinated children under 18 traveling with fully vaccinated parents are welcome. Non-vaccinated children under 18 traveling with fully vaccinated parents will observe the same period of Vacation in Place as their parents.
The previously announced travel requirements for non-vaccinated travelers are null and void.
The fully vaccinated traveler must complete the Travel Authorization Form on the national website (https://www.knatravelform.kn/). Once the Travel Authorization Form is completed, the traveler must submit a copy of their official Vaccination Card (back and front scan). The vaccination card must be sent for verification via email or WhatsApp. The date of arrival and the KN number generated on their completed KNA travel form must be included.
Vaccination Record cards may be submitted via one of two methods:
- WhatsApp Phone Numbers - 869-762-0238 or 869-765-4880
- Email - firstname.lastname@example.org, Subject line: Vaccination Card
Upon review, the Chef Medical Officer will email the acceptance status of the traveler’s vaccination card.
Upon submission of a completed KNA travel form and approval of their vaccination card, the traveler must upload their official COVID-19 RT-PCR negative test result from a CLIA/CDC/UKAS approved lab accredited with ISO/IEC 17025 standard taken 72 hours prior to travel.
Upon receipt of the copy of the COVID -19 RT-PCR test negative result and their official vaccination card, the traveler’s information will be reviewed, and they will receive the approval letter to enter the Federation.
Fully vaccinated travelers should bring a copy of the negative COVID- 19 RT-PCR test and their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card as proof of completion of their vaccination. Please note, acceptable COVID-19 PCR tests must be taken by nasopharyngeal sample. Self-samples, rapid tests, or home tests will be considered invalid.
Fully vaccinated travelers will undergo a health screening at the airport which includes a temperature check and a health questionnaire. Upon arrival, if a fully vaccinated traveler is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 during the health screening, they can be required to undergo a RT- PCR test at the airport at their own cost (150 USD).
Fully vaccinated air travelers will be asked to “Vacation in Place” at a Travel Approved hotel for three (3) days.
Fully vaccinated air travelers are free to move throughout the Travel Approved hotel, interact with other guests, and partake in hotel activities only.
For more details and information, please visit the St. Kitts/Nevis Tourism Board website.
Before returning to the USA effective immediately, the United States requires that all air passengers entering the country will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding their flight as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many of our travel suppliers have made arrangements for on-site COVID-19 testing right at your hotel (view these travel supplier policies).
Reminder-if you do any COVID testing or seek any healthcare while abroad, please retain all receipts for insurance purposes.
