Effective April 1, 2022, proof of either a negative COVID-19 antigen test or negative RT-PCR test is required for all inbound international travelers to Nevis arriving by air.
This replaces the previous requirement in which only the results of RT-PCR tests were acceptable. Antigen tests must be taken within 24 hours of arrival; while RT-PCR tests must be taken within 72 hours prior to arrival.
Travelers’ choice of test must be administered by an accredited lab using a nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal swab. The results of self-administered tests or tests using saliva samples are not currently approved for entry.
“This modification could not come at a better time for our incoming international guests,” said Devon Liburd, Nevis Tourism Authority interim CEO.
“Spring is a good time of year to experience Nevis. It is our driest season with temperatures in the mid-80s. Because of this, we look to these newly increased options in entry protocol to serve as a warm welcome to our petite island paradise.”
Only 36 square miles in size, Nevis provides a naturally exclusive vacation experience not found elsewhere in the Caribbean. Whether one considers themselves to be an adventurer, wellness enthusiast, history buff, foodie, sun seeker or any combination of the above, Nevis prides itself on providing unmatched and heartfelt hospitality.
