The Ministry of Tourism of Barbados, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, says that it is now providing COVID-19 testing for outbound travellers.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Lisa Cummins, said that 145 outbound travellers had been tested at the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory, in order to receive their certification for travel.

The Minister noted that the Ministry had been working with its airline industry partners, specifically British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, to communicate to outbound travellers to the United Kingdom the process of how to acquire the test.

With respect to travelers to Caribbean destinations and Canada, the Minister urged those travellers to call the Tourism hotline – “so that arrangements can be made for you in time to fly out with a negative PCR test result and your required certification.”
