Dominica revises COVID-19 country risk classification; reclassifies Antigua as high risk

The Government of Dominica has taken the responsible decision to revise the COVID-19 country risk classifications for travel based on changes in the number of COVID-19 cases in neighbouring countries.

Effective February 7, 2021, Antigua and Barbuda has been reclassified to the HIGH-RISK classification. Travellers from Antigua and Barbuda to Dominica must submit the online health screening form and submit a negative PCR test where swabs were taken within 24-72 hours of arrival into Dominica. Upon exiting the port of entry, travellers will submit to a quarantine period of up to 7 days where a PCR test is taken on day 5 after arrival and results are expected within 24-48 hours. Travellers must submit themselves to mandatory quarantine and may opt to quarantine at the government operated facility or at a Safe in Nature certified property under a ‘Managed Experience’.
