Persons traveling into St. Vincent and the Grenadines can now use a negative SARS-Cov-2 Rapid Antigen test result to do so.

According to the Health Services Subcommittee, this took effect, today, Thursday, 3rd March, 2022

In an announcement today, Thursday, March 3, 2022, the Health Services Subcommittee said that “All Fully vaccinated travellers to St. Vincent and the Grenadines MUST ARRIVE WITH a negative SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR COVID-19 test OR a negative SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen result.”

Previously, the negative PCR rest result was required for incoming travellers to gain entry, as part of the country’s COVID-19 entry protocols.

The Rapid Antigen tests are less expensive than the PCR tests.

The health authorities say that all other COVID-19 protocols remain the same.

The move comes as several countries have moved to accept the SARS-Cov-2 Rapid Antigen test result for entry.

It also comes at a time when many countries have started to relax Covid-19 requirements.
