Nevis Officially Opens to UK Travellers from 1 September, 2021

The Nevis Tourism Authority is delighted to welcome valued UK travellers back to the Caribbean island, after months of travel restrictions.

The Caribbean island of Nevis is delighted to welcome fully-vaccinated UK travellers from 1 September 2021. This will be the first time that the island has been open to UK tourists since early 2020.

After over a year of reduced inbound tourism, the island is looking forward to welcoming visitors to enjoy its beaches, five-star hotels, rejuvenating wellness retreats, adventurous activities, fantastic dining and eclectic beach bars.

Only fully-vaccinated travellers will be able to enter Nevis, and a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result is also required, taken no more than 72 hours ahead of travel. Airport health screening is still in place, and all travellers are asked to ‘Vacation in Place’ for four days at one of the island’s four ‘Travel-Approved’ hotels: Four Seasons Resort, Golden Rock Inn, Monpelier Plantation & Beach, and Paradise Beach.

Jadine Yarde, CEO of the Nevis Tourism Authority, says: “After months and months of waiting, we are very excited to announce that fully-vaccinated travellers from the UK will be able to travel to Nevis from 1 September 2021. We are ready and waiting for our valued guests to arrive on our stunning island, and to enjoy all that it has to offer.”

“During the pandemic, whilst keeping the people of the island safe has been the priority, we have taken time to develop and improve Nevis’ tourism products and introduce some exciting new activities for the return of international travellers. We are eager to delight all incoming visitors with our refreshed offering, with something to suit every type of traveller. Whether they are seeking an adventurours escape or a luxurious wellness retreat – Nevis will offer an authentic and memorable experience.”

“The UK is one of our top source markets and we cannot wait to see you soon.”

British Airways has announced the resumption of service from Gatwick to the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis from 3 October 2021. The route will operate two consecutive services departing from Gatwick on Sunday 3 October and Sunday 10 October, then move to twice-weekly services departing from Gatwick on Wednesdays and Saturdays, commencing 16 October 2021.

The vaccination rate in St. Kitts & Nevis continues its upward trajectory, with 72.8% of the adult population having received one dose of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine and 61.4% of the adult population fully vaccinated. On 11 August 2021, the Federation received the first of three tranches of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, making a second vaccine option available to the Federation’s Citizens and Residents and providing the ability to soon offer the vaccine to children and teenagers between the ages of 12 – 17.
