Anguilla plans to restart tourism later this week.
It is now accepting applications from visitors wishing to travel from 21 August, according to Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism, Quincia Gumbs-Marie.
The pre-registration process can be completed online at the Anguilla Tourist Board’s website.
Would-be travelers must share some personal data and proposed travel dates.
They must also have proof of a negative PCR test taken within three days before arrival and insurance covering Covid-19 treatment.
Once approved, authorization will be issued online.
Travelers wlll be given a second PCR test on arrival and another after 10 days, and only if that is negative are they able to explore outside their resort.
“Visitors from low-risk countries will be given preference. Those from high-risk countries will be assessed on a case by case basis, taking into consideration their place of residence,” officials said.
“A rigorous program of staff training is currently underway. It should be noted that as the island is presently Covid- 19 free, wearing a mask is not mandatory. However, guests on the island are expected to observe social distancing and follow the stringent hygiene practices.”
