The Government of Barbados has removed all of its last-remaining COVID-19 entry protocols.

The changes went into effect on Sept. 22 at midnight. As a result, there will be no testing requirements for entering Barbados whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated.

In addition, the wearing of masks generally will now be optional, according to a press release. 

Mask wearing only remains mandatory for persons working in and visiting healthcare facilities, nursing homes, hospitals and senior citizens homes; persons travelling on public transportation; and for persons who are COVID-19 positive.

“This is the last step for us which reflects our position as fully open for business following the COVID-19 pandemic," said Sen. the Hon. Lisa Cummins. "We look forward to continuing to welcome visitors to our shores to experience all of the new and returning events slated for the rest of the year, and into early 2023."
