The Federation’s travel requirements for fully vaccinated travelers are stated below.

Effective May 29, 2021, only fully vaccinated travelers will be allowed entry into St. Kitts & Nevis. Exemptions for Citizens, Residents, and non-vaccinated children under 18 traveling with fully-vaccinated parents or guardians. 

A traveler is considered fully vaccinated when two weeks have passed since receiving their second dose of a two-dose vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, or AstraZeneca/Oxford) or two weeks after the traveler has received a single dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson’s/Janssen).

An embarkation form is required regardless of age. Forms must be submitted no later than 24 hours prior to travel.

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 be required to submit a copy of their official Vaccination Record card including dates when doses were administered.
