St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Effective July 12, 2021, fully vaccinated travelers to St. Kitts and Nevis will be required to quarantine for three days at a government approved COVID-19 facility or at an approved hotel offering vacation-in-place.
That was revealed by the Hon. Dr. Timothy Harris, Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, during a televised address to the nation on July 10, 2021.
“Quarantine for incoming fully vaccinated passengers will be reduced from nine days to three days with testing on the fourth day and released once the test is negative.
Children under 18 years and accompanying their fully vaccinated parents and or guardians will be treated the same as their parents and guardians in relation to the period of quarantine,” the Prime Minister explained.
Unvaccinated returning citizens and residents will be required to quarantine for 14 days at an approved government COVID-19 facility or at a certified hotel offering vacation-in-place. Persons who prefer to quarantine at home are permitted to do so upon approval by the National COVID-19 Task Force. Approved home quarantine will require security at the expense of the traveler(s).
The Government describes fully vaccinated people as individuals who have taken two doses of a 2-dose regimen vaccine.
