Anguilla eliminates online entry portal for travellers

THE VALLEY, ANGUILLA – The island of Anguilla has updated its entry protocols as part of its evolving COVID-19 Exit Strategy.

As of June 1, 2022, the online entry portal for permission to travel to Anguilla is no longer in use.

Anyone over the age of five and travelling to Anguilla still requires a valid negative COVID-19 test – either PCR of NAA – administered within three days of arrival, or a rapid antigen test taken no more than two days before arrival. Results must be presented before boarding and upon arrival in Anguilla, along with evidence of full vaccination status. Full vaccinated is defined as having received the last dose in a primary series of a COVID-19 vaccine more than 14 days prior to the arrival date.

Self-administered/home testing kids (including video proctored) and antibody tests are not accepted at this time.

In addition, testing on arrival has been discontinued for all those travelling to Anguilla, except for people who arrive without an accepted pre-arrival test. Such persons will be subject to PCR testing on arrival and must remain in place at their hotel or villa until results are known. They must also pay a fine.

Anguilla remains a vaccination-only destination for adult visitors. If an unvaccinated person wishes to request a medical exemption permitting entry into Anguilla, they should apply for the exemption in writing at visitanguilla@gov.ai under the subject heading ‘Request for COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption.’ An unvaccinated visitor who is granted a medical exemption permitting entry is required to quarantine for a period of no less than five days (or another such period specified by the Quarantine Authority).
