Attractions and tours should be booked at ticket offices at hotels and / or resorts certified under the St. Kitts and Nevis Travel Approved Program. Participants must also use approved taxis and are required to provide photo ID and original vaccination card or photocopy to enter attractions and participate in tours.

Under the revised protocols, international travelers can book overnight stays at multiple hotels or take vacations to twin islands in St. Kitts and Nevis. Travelers may change accommodation after the end of the 24 hour vacation period.

Saint Kitts and Nevis only admits fully vaccinated international air travelers. Arriving visitors are required to undergo an RT-PCR test upon arrival at their approved accommodation and vacation in place for 24 hours. Following a negative test and at the end of the 24 hour period, travelers can travel within the Federation.
