St Lucia will relax its testing requirements for fully vaccinated arrivals from Saturday.

The tourist board says it is creating ‘a simplified experience’ for travellers.

From Saturday, fully vaccinated arrivals and in-transit passengers can take an antigen test instead of a PCR.

However, it must be taken within one day of entering St Lucia and must be administered by a health professional. Self tests are not accepted.

Travellers can still take a PCR test if they prefer, in which case it can be taken up to five days before entering St Lucia.

Testing is required for all passengers from the age of five.

All unvaccinated arrivals must still present a negative PCR test, taken up to five days earlier.

And all travellers must register their information and upload their test results online prior to travelling. On completion, they will receive an automatic ‘ready to go’ email.  “Travellers are seeking a seamless experience along with confidence in safety, and our eased protocols reflect our commitment to welcoming travellers back to Saint Lucia,” said CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority Lorine Charles-St. Jules.
