Vaccinated Requirements
Entry Requirements for Vaccinated Visitors
Proof of vaccination:

You will be required to show your COVID-19 vaccinations to enter into the country as fully vaccinated.  You will be able to do this using the NHS COVID app.

Test pre-travel/recovery certificate: PCR or Antigen
PCR Test locations: https://covidtraveladvice.kuoni.co.uk/pcr-test-locations
Test time:

You must provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken no more than 3 days (72) hours before arrival into Dominica, or a rapid antigen test taken no more than 2 days (48 hours) before arrival into Dominica. This test must be administered by a professional and cannot be a self test.

Children under 5 years old do not need to take a test to enter into the country.

From the 4th April, if you are fully vaccinated then you will no longer need to take a test prior to travel to Dominica.  However, you should check the destination which you are transiting through as this may still need a test to arrive.

On arrival:

You will need to complete the pre-arrival form, upload your negative result and your vaccination certificate into the form and pay for your antigen test given on arrival.

Once you arrive you will have a health assessment including a temperature check and then show your health clearance document (given from the pre-arrival form) your negative test result, your vaccination certificate and your receipt for the antigen test.  You will then take your antigen test and if this result is negative you can proceed to your accommodation and you do not need to quarantine.

You are classed as fully vaccinated 14 days after your final dose of a COVID19 vaccine.

From the 4th April you will no longer need to complete the pre-arrival form.

 

Form pre-travel:

A Traveller Health Declaration form will need to be completed before travel.  Please check on the link below to see when you are able to complete the form needed for your destination.  You may need to either complete this form electronically, or print out and take with you to show at the airport of departure and arrival. It is important that you check the form as early as you can for time frames as this may need to be completed up to 7 days before travel, or as little as 24 hours before travel.
