COVID-19 Travel Guidelines

As Barbados welcomes you back to the lovely island, various measures and safeguards have been put in place to protect both inhabitants and visitors. Considering that the entry requirements are open to change, you should carefully and frequently check the official website information.  

What are the general entry requirements for Barbados?

All visitors from the United States are currently required to have a passport when visiting Barbados. At the time of admission, your US passport must be valid; one page is required for an entry stamp. For stays of up to six months, no visa is necessary. 

There is a $27.50 (USD) departure tax; additionally, travelers going outside of the Caribbean region pay $70.00 (USD) per person, and those flying inside the Caribbean region pay $35.00 (USD) per person; most airlines include this in the ticket price.

When is the best time to go to Barbados?

The island is at its finest in late winter and early spring when the weather is colder and drier. The usual temperature in January is between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, while July is often warmer and rainier.

Getting Around Barbados - easy or not?

While in Barbados, the only way you can fully embrace the culture is by simply getting around. There is always something going on that makes you want to get out and about, despite the island’s small size.

If you don’t mind driving to the left, you might find Barbados an ideal rental car. If you don’t have an international driver’s license, you’ll need a temporary permit.

Bus transportation in Barbados is another way to see the island. Perhaps this is your cheapest mode of transport ($3.50 every time you get on board), but it may not be as reliable.

The best sights (and restaurants) are well known to cab drivers, so taking a taxi is a hassle-free way to get around. Negotiate the rate before you start, and be sure you know which currency is being quoted.

How safe is Barbados?

Barbados is considered a very safe destination and typically has a lower rate of violence than its Caribbean neighbors. However, it would be best to be careful when moving around, but Barbados’ police are heavily deployed around suburban and tourist areas, so that’s a big plus.

Safety tip: Manchineel trees, found on many Barbados beaches, are beautiful and leafy green, appearing to be a great place to escape from the sun or the occasional rain shower. Please don’t do it. The leaves and fruit are both toxic and can create a severe rash on your skin.

If you’ve come this far, you must have realized that staying at a Barbados all-inclusive resort lets you in on a holiday where you can thoroughly immerse yourself in the island’s culture, endless outdoor experience, and superb pampering amenities.

All-inclusive holidays in Barbados are synonymous with beautiful beaches, exquisite resorts, famous restaurants, and vibrant nightlife; it’s no surprise that they’re so popular.

So don’t think twice; book your stay today because we promise you won’t regret it.
