Dominica opens borders to international tourists on August 7

Dominica will reopen its borders to international tourists on August 7.

The island country started reopening the state in phased approach, with nationals and residents returning home in the first phase and international visitors being allowed entry in the second one, with strict health and safety guidelines in place.

Each person travelling to Dominica must observe these protocols, which have been carefully deliberated and formally announced, to minimise the risk of new cases of COVID-19, once the borders reopen. 

Protocols for pre-arrival include providing a detailed health questionnaire online, at least 24 hours prior to arrival, show a notification of clearance to travel which is received upon submission, submitting a negative PCR-test result, recorded within 24-72 hours prior to arrival, use of face masks at all times during the arrival process, up to and including departure from the airport, observing physical distancing, practising  good personal hygiene, and following instructions of health care staff and officials. Children under five years are exempt from providing a testing fee.

Protocols upon arrival require that travellers must sanitise their hands at sanitisation stations; undergo a health assessment including a temperature check, undergo rapid test screening. After testing negative, they will be taken to immigration and customs for screening, and their luggage will be sanitised.

Travellers who report a high temperature, high risk alert from their health questionnaire or Positive Rapid Test will proceed to secondary screening area, and will be given a PCR test. They will be transported to mandatory quarantine at a government-approved facility or a government certified hotel at their expense. If the test results are positive, the traveller may be quarantined until released by an authorised health professional.

Vehicles from Dominica will be permitted to enter the air and seaport with only the driver and travellers.

Air travellers can connect to Dominica on Air Antilles, Air Sunshine, Coastal Air Transport, interCaribbean Airways, Seaborne Airlines, or WINAIR from Antigua, Barbados, Guadeloupe, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St Lucia, the British Virgin Islands and the US Virgin Islands.  If travelling by sea, travellers can connect to Dominica on L’Express Des Iles ferry service from Guadeloupe, Martinique, and St. Lucia and on Val Ferry from Guadeloupe and Martinique.
