Antigua and Barbuda


US travelers to Antigua and Barbuda “arriving by air must present a negative Covid-19-RT-PCR (real time polymerase chain reaction) test result, taken within seven days of their flight,” according an advisory on the country’s tourism website.

Visitors are subject to monitoring by health officials for 14 days and another Covid-19 test may be required, which could mean quarantining while waiting for the result. Masks are required in public spaces. Violations can involve stiff fines and even jail time.

Turkey’s intriguing neighbor to the east is open for US tourists to explore. Travelers will need to take a Covid-19 PCR test upon arrival or face mandatory isolation for 14 days. Passengers who get tested must isolate until they get a negative result. A list of testing sites can be found on Zvartnots International Airport’s website.

US passengers from 24 states, including California and Florida, are required to upload a negative Covid-19 test result via Aruba’s embarkation/disembarkation card process 72 hours before arrival.
Travelers arriving from the other 26 states can opt to have a test taken upon arrival, though the test must be prepaid and you must quarantine while awaiting results. Aruba also requires travelers to be insured. The Aruba tourism site has all the specific health requirements for incoming passengers, which are considerable.
