Familiarize yourself with the entry requirements and health protocols implemented by the Government of Grenada: https://covid19.gov.gd. These regulations are under constant review and may change with short notice, so do check the aforementioned website frequently as you plan your trip.
Protocols for visitors to Grenada:
Note: If you are an All-inclusive guest, an antigen test is taken on arrival at the hotel and on day 5 a PCR test is taken.
Effective July 31 all non-national must be fully vaccinated. Children 13 years and under, traveling with their vaccinated parents/guardians, can quarantine with them for up to 48 hours.
Unvaccinated minors between 14 and 18 years old can travel to Grenada with their vaccinated guardians. The entire travel party will be treated as unvaccinated and required to quarantine for up to 7 days.
A Pure Safe Travel Authorization Certificate is needed by each traveller including children arriving in Grenada from December 1, 2020. To be granted the authorization you must register online, upload confirmation of an accommodation booking for a minimum of seven nights. Find full details here.
With the new Airport testing options, the travel authorization is granted without uploading the negative PCR test, however, you must check in at the airport with confirmation of the negative COVID-19 PCR test result.
All arrivals are required to hold proof of a confirmed reservation at a Ministry of Health Pure Safe Travel approved accommodation for a minimum of seven nights. This is to enable a period of observation and quarantine.
If your stay in Grenada is less than five days, you must remain at your accommodation throughout your time in Grenada.
Visit the Ministry of Health Accommodation Listing to choose your certified quarantine accommodation.
Upon exiting your aircraft at the Maurice Bishop International Airport you must comply with Government of Grenada protocols. Wear a facemask or face-covering, adhere to physical distancing and use hand sanitizer upon entering the airport terminal. The first people you’ll meet are Health Officials who will process your entry paperwork: you are required to present a hard copy of your Pure Safe Travel Authorization Certificate and proof of your negative PCR test results.
You may then proceed to Immigration, baggage collection and Customs before exiting the airport terminal.
Head to the Grenada Airports Authority transportation dispatch desk where all transfers to accommodation are handled. Visitors are transferred directly to their approved accommodation by a Pure Safe Travel accredited vehicle and driver.
All travellers to the destination will be tested on day 5, whether entering the community or not. If your stay is under five days, you must remain at your accommodation for the duration of your stay in Grenada.
In order to enter the community you must take a PCR test on day five of your stay and receive a negative result. Day 1 starts the day after your arrival in Grenada. This test is undertaken at your accommodation by Health Officials at the visitor’s cost.
Fully vaccinated travellers will only be required to quarantine for 48 hours, pending a negative PCR test on entry.
Upon clearance by a Ministry of Health official, you’re free to enter the community and discover the islands’ attractions and amenities. Click the tab below for a full list of Pure Safe Travel Approved Tourism Services.
