FULLY Vaccinated Tourists Welcome
The Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA) says as of October 07, 2021, fully vaccinated travelers visiting the island will be required to stay at a travel-approved hotel for 24 hours before they are encouraged to explore all the island has to offer.
The reduction in the “vacation in place” requirement is due to an announcement of the revised protocols in St. Kitts and Nevis. Previously, fully vaccinated travelers were required to stay in a travel-approved hotel for four days.
During the 24-hour stay, all travelers must take a COVID-19 RT-PCR test and produce a negative result before departing the hotel.
A negative COVID-19 RT-PCR pre-departure test is also required, which must be taken no more than 72 hours ahead of travel to Nevis. Airport health screening remains in place.

Is the PCR test for COVID-19 accurate?
PCR tests remain the gold standard for detecting an active COVID-19 infection. The tests have accurately detected COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began. Highly trained clinical professionals are skilled at correctly interpreting PCR test results and notices like this one from the WHO. Aug 19, 2021
