Barbados removes all COVID-19 protocols

TORONTO — Barbados has dropped all COVID-19-related travel protocols, allowing travellers to enter the country without having to test for COVID-19, regardless of their vaccination status.

The eased measures came into effect on Sept. 22, 2022. In addition, the wearing of masks is now generally optional, and is only mandatory for people working in and visiting healthcare facilities, nursing homes, hospitals and senior citizens homes, as well as people travelling on public transportation and for those 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 Minister of Tourism and International Transport 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.”
