BERMUDA COVID-19 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR TRAVELERS
Bermuda, an island nation only a 2.5-hour flight from New York, is allowing tourists back to its beaches, however with some of the strictest testing rules we've seen. While Bermuda is often thought of when day-dreaming of vacationing in the Caribbean, it's actually located off the Carolina's in the Atlantic Ocean all by itself.
Iceland to Open Borders to All Vaccinated Travellers
Iceland’s Justice Minister just announced that the country will open its borders to travellers from outside Europe who have been vaccinated against COVID-19. According to current regulations, Iceland’s borders are closed to all travellers outside the Schengen Area, EEA, EFTA, and EU, regardless of their vaccination status. Justice Minister Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir stated the change would take effect this week.
The British Virgin Islands Is Easing Restrictions for Vaccinated Travelers
Another Caribbean destination has announced eased restrictions for vaccinated travelers: the British Virgin Islands. Beginning May 15, the British Virgin Islands will be reducing its quarantine period for fully vaccinated travelers. Fully vaccinated travelers will have to take a test upon arrival; once they get a negative test result (typically within 24 hours), they’ll be free to roam the BVI — and can forego the four-day quarantine for non-vaccinated travelers.
