Regulations also state guests will be transferred by certified taxi to Covid-19 approved accommodation.

St Lucia tourism minister, Dominic Fedee, said: “In order to co-exist with Covid-19, we must constantly evaluate our safety and travel protocols.

“In due consideration of all factors affecting the health of Saint Lucian citizens and international visitors, we are tightening testing protocols based on our current conditions.”

Also arrivals must complete and submit a travel registration form, which is found on the Saint Lucia Covid-19 travel advisory page here.
