Basseterre, St. Kitts (SKNIS): The Government of the Republic of Ireland has downgraded advice on travel to Saint Kitts and Nevis from “Avoid non-essential travel” to “High degree of caution” in a recent Travel Alert on its country website.
The move, which took effect from 17th December, 2021 advises Irish nationals desirous of travelling to Saint Kitts and Nevis, to undertake proper research and carefully consider the necessity of their travel at this time. They are also being asked to be aware of possible limitations to consular services and ensure travel insurance coverage before they travel.
Saint Kitts and Nevis on the other hand, continues to uphold its May 29, 2021 decision that only fully vaccinated arrivals will be allowed entry into the Federation, with exemptions being in place for citizens and residents and children under the age of 18 coming from international destinations. Non-vaccinated children under 18 travelling with fully vaccinated parents are welcomed but must observe the same protocols associated with “Vacation in Place” as their parents.
