'Let her inspire you' - St Lucia Tourism Board slogan


Visitors are required to provide certified proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of boarding their flight.

As part of a responsible phased approach to the re-opening of Saint Lucia, the Government of Saint Lucia has announced the reopening of the borders for air travel beginning June 4th, 2020.

The guidelines are for locals and visitors as well as airports, airlines, hotels, resorts and ground transportation. New procedure and protocols include:

  • Visitors are required to provide certified proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of boarding their flight.

  • Upon arrival in Saint Lucia, all travelers must continue the use of face masks and physical distancing.

  • Travelers will be subject to screening and temperature checks by port health authorities.

  • Protocols are being established for taxis, to provide safety precautions and separate the driver from guests as an added security measure.

  • Health and safety protocols will be reinforced through the use of signage that includes QR codes which take travelers to a landing page for more information.

To further ensure that Saint Lucia remains a safe and responsible destination, the government is developing a COVID-19 Certificate for hotels. Hotels must meet a dozen or more specific criteria for sanitization, social distancing and other COVID-19 protocols before they will be permitted to open to guests. These measures will enhance protection of visitors, staff and Saint Lucian nationals.


“Our new protocols have been carefully crafted and will build confidence among travelers and our citizens,” stated the Honourable Dominic Fedee.

Situated in the Eastern Caribbean, Saint Lucia is an island known for her exotic beaches, luxury resorts, striking scenery and the Pitons. As one of the Windward Islands, we are found between Martinique and St. Vincent. One of the wonderful things about Saint Lucia is the wide choice of transportation available to the Island. There are more than a dozen airlines that service Saint Lucia’s two airports Hewanorra International Airport and George Charles Airport, from a host of international and local destinations. For those visitors arriving by sea, cruise lines and local ferries dock daily at Port Castries and Soufriere. Whether you choose to fly direct, stop off on a cruise or just pop over from one of the neighbouring islands you will find a warm Caribbean welcome awaits you.
