The short answer is yes! As of June 9, 2021 the French government is permitting fully-vaccinated American tourists to travel to and from the Caribbean island of Saint-Barthélemy.
“After two successful vaccination campaigns, the vast majority of our island’s citizens are now vaccinated, and our efficient Covid-19 testing center offers swift service for everyone,” Nils Dufau, president of the Tourism Committee has said. Happy news indeed, especially for those dreaming of those breathtaking beaches!
The following protocols for full-vaccinated American tourists will now apply*:
- U.S visitors to St. Barts must provide proof of being fully-vaccinated
- They must also provide proof of a negative PCR test (done within 3 days of arrival/or via an Antigen test, within 48 hours)
- Visitors aged 18 years and younger will not need to provide proof of vaccination (those below the age of 5 do not need to be tested)
- U.S visitors arriving to St. Barts via St. Maarten or San Juan must also follow those country’s entry procedures
- Once on St. Barts there is no need for quarantine or self-isolation
- No Covid test will be required during your stay
- You will need to take a Covid test on your return back to the U.S.
- Holiday villas are open for tourism and restaurants, shops, water activities and tourism services are open as usual
* Correct as of June 9, 2021. Please refer to Covid-19 information on the official St. Barts tourism site.
