Information for guests travelling through Barbados

Please note that all guests must spend a minimum of 5 nights on Mustique before traveling again nationally or internationally.

Guests travelling to Barbados from the UK will need to quarantine for 7 days upon arrival.

This does not apply to guests in-transit to Mustique, but we suggest travelling through St. Lucia as there is a longer window for testing (5 days compared to 3 days for Barbados) and the connection is much easier through the St. Lucia airport.

Pre-Travel

Before you set off for Mustique you need to do the following:

  • Book a Covid-19 PCR test at an accredited/certified laboratory within 3 days/72 hours of your date of departure.
  • Once you have your negative test result, print two copies of your certificate. You will need to travel with these.
  • N.B Children under three do not need to be tested.
  • Within 3 days of your departure you will need to complete:
  • Print a copy of each of these and travel with them.
  • Please email pcrresults@mustique.vc a copy of the negative PCR test, the Barbados Pre-Arrival Registration Confirmation Email and the VINCYCOVID form 48 hours prior to travel so we can arrange for pre-clearance into the country.
