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.


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

Your journey

  • Surgical masks are mandatory in all local airports and on the flights to and from Mustique, for all passengers 2 years old and older.
  • When you land in Barbados, you will need to clear both the Covid temperature checks and Customs, before awaiting your transfer to Mustique.

Arrival on Mustique

  • Upon disembarkation in Mustique, the government nurse will take your temperature and check relevant PCR results and Vincy Covid Forms
  • Anyone aged 5 or over will then need to have a Rapid Antigen test performed at the Airport by our personnel. Wait for 10 minutes to get the result. Once this is completed you can travel up to your villa or to the hotel. The cost for this test is $30 per person.
  • For the First 24 Hours after landing you must isolate in your Villa or Hotel – no leaving the premises at all for any reason
  • For the following 4 days guests are required to observe their own bubble in their own accommodation. You may walk, swim, visit the beach, but do NOT go to the public Bars, Restaurants, Hotel, Yoga, Tennis or Supermarket.
  • On day 5 you will need to take another PCR test at the Clinic; after this, you will be free to enjoy the island as normal.

Departing Mustique

  • You are now required to have a new PCR test 2 days prior to your departure for Barbados.
  • If you are traveling on a private charter flight, you MUST must check your proposed dates with as we cannot guarantee a 2 day turnaround on PCR tests without prior approval of the flight times.
  • These PCR tests can be done by the clinic on island. It is your responsibility to contact the clinic for an appointment. These are performed between 10am to 12pm every day except Sunday. Please don’t leave this too late.
  • The cost for this is US$100 per person.
  • In the unlikely event that you receive a positive PCR result while on island you will need to isolate in your villa at your own cost until a negative PCR is obtained.
  • Children under 3 do not need to be tested.
  • Once you receive your negative test result, print two copies of your certificate. You will need to travel with these.
  • Within 3 days of your departure you will need to complete the Barbados Pre-Arrival Registration Form
  • Print a copy of each of these and travel with them.

Onward travel
