Barbados is planning to scrap its quarantine and testing requirement for fully vaccinated holdidaymakers from Sunday.

The news has been reported locally in Barbados, but a spokesperson for the tourist board in the UK said they were waiting for further details.

They said it had not yet been confirmed whether unvaccinated children will also be exempt from quarantine.

Further details are expected later today.

Currently, all UK arrivals must present a negative PCR test taken no more than three days before arrival in Barbados.

Those who aren’t vaccinated must quarantine in a designated hotel or approved villa and take a second test five days later.

Vaccinated arrivals must have a second rapid PCR test at the airport or hotel on arrival and remain there until they get their test results.

The Foreign Office has yet to update its travel advice for Barbados to reflect the imminent changes.
