2. People who show proof of having had Covid-19 a minimum of 20 days or a maximum of 90 days prior to embarkation. Proof can be a positive PCR or antigen test. [The antigen test option is NEW]

3. The under-18s, vaccinated or unvaccinated.

The good news: New arrivals will not need to quarantine.

4. Unvaccinated travellers can apply for a permit to travel 


Other travel requirements

Arrivals must:

  • show proof of a negative PCR or antigen test taken within 72 hours of embarkation
  • provide a sworn statement up to 48 hours prior to embarkation confirming the absence of symptoms and contact with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases in the 14 days prior to admission. Complete the form <– NOW IN ENGLISH. Tip: If you’re uploading test results or other attachments and the file size is too large, it will give errors over and over again. Save the attachment with less resolution so the file size is smaller, and it works (Thanks, Jen!)
  • have health insurance.
