Important Travel Information

Anguilla has done an incredible job of stopping the spread of COVID-19 and continues to have a classification of No Travel Health Notice: Very Low Risk for COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control. 

All travelers must be pre-approved for entry through the Anguilla Tourist Board’s website, including providing a negative rt-PCR test result from a naso-pharyngeal swab obtained three to five days prior to arrival and proof of health insurance that covers COVID-related treatment. Once approved, you will pre-pay government fees that cover testing. You can start the pre-approval process right away and add your test results and payment later. A travel concierge will guide you through the process.

Protocols continue to evolve and may be different when you stay. Trip insurance is always recommended. Sint. Maarten and other Anguilla gateways may have different entry and exit requirements.
