COVID-19 Travel Information

Travel protocols for Barbados have recently changed and vary slightly based on the travelers vaccination status.

All travelers to Barbados will be required to complete a Pre-Arrival on-line Embarkation/Disembarkation (ED) form. It is urged that this be done at least 24hrs before arrival. This online form will include ED information, including intended address and health information, will allow for the uploading of COVID 19 PCR test results taken no more than 3 days prior to arrival or Rapid PCR or Rapid Antigen test result taken no more than 1 day prior to arrival, and vaccination records.

Unvaccinated travelers will be required to quarantine at pre-approved accommodation and take a second PCR test four days after arrival, and are free to continue their vacation after receiving a negative result.

Please see the link at the bottom of the page ‘Travel Protocols’ for details of the full requirements for traveling to (or through) Barbados.

Persons may log on to and complete and submit the online application form at least 24 hours prior to travel.

After submission of the form, they will receive two receipts via email – one for customs and the other for immigration. These receipts may be printed, or saved to a mobile device, and presented to authorities at the airport on arrival or departure.

The information requested includes travel history, contact information and health screening to complete the risk assessment process for COVID-19, to ensure the safety of visitors and Barbadians during this time.

Through the introduction of the online ED form, Barbados is able to offer travellers to the island a solution that will allow for a smooth, safe, and contactless transit through the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA).
