Information for guests travelling through St. Lucia

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


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

St. Lucia testing

  • Book a Covid-19 PCR test at an accredited/certified laboratory within 5 days of your date of departure (see above diagram).
  • Once you have your negative test result, print two copies of your certificate. You will need to travel with these.
  • N.B Children under five do not need to be tested.
  • Within 7 days of your departure you will need to complete:
  • For St. Lucia the PCR test must be uploaded to your application upon receipt.
  • Print and travel with a copy of the travel authorization letter that you will receive before you travel (Will be received after upload and authorization of PCR results).
  • Please email a copy of the negative PCR test, the St. Lucia Pre-Arrival Registration Confirmation Email, the St. Lucia Screening Questionnaire, and the Vincy Pre-Arrival Travel Form 48 hours prior to travel so we can arrange for pre-clearance into the country.
  • Kindly do not email coronavirus task force SVG as we will submit the required info on your behalf under the Mustique bubble travel rules.

Important Information

  • It is pivotal that you complete your St. Lucia Pre-Arrival form at least 7 days prior to travel to avoid any issues with pre-clearance; you will also be required to upload a copy of your St. Lucia to Mustique Travel Itinerary to the form . After receiving your COVID test results, you can log back into your application and upload them. This must be done in order to get your approval in time for your travel.
  • At the beginning of the St. Lucia Pre-Arrival application form, please ensure you select that you are in-transit. When asked if you have a certified covid accommodation please select ‘Private/Vessel’, for the vessel name put ‘SVG Air’ and then upload your flight confirmation.
  • When completing the Vincy Pre-Arrival form there is a glitch in the system that changes you answer from ‘Yes’ to ‘No’ when asked if you are in possession of a negative covid test. The authorities are aware of such issue and it would not affect your travels.
  • The same Vincy pre-arrival form currently states that a PCR test must be taken within 3 days of travel. Please disregard this. Mustique has a special 5 day PCR test arrangement with the government of St Vincent & the Grenadines.

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 St. Lucia, you will need to clear both the Covid temperature checks and Customs, before you enter our new lounge awaiting your transfer to Mustique.

Arrival on Mustique

  • Upon disembarkation in Mustique, you will have a Rapid Antigen test performed at the Airport by a Medic – you will get your result immediately. Once this is completed and you receive your NEGATIVE result – you can travel up to your villa or hotel. This does not apply to anyone under the age of 5. The cost for this Rapid Antigen test is US$30 per person.
  • FOR THE FIRST 24 HOURS after landing you must isolate in your Villa or Hotel – under NO circumstances should you leave your premises at all for any reason.
  • For the subsequent 4 days, you must observe your own social bubble in your villa. You may go to the beach, go for walks but you must not interact with other people. You may NOT go to any social gatherings, public bars, Basil’s, Yoga, Tennis or Supermarket. You must NOT invite anyone into your bubble for drinks / coffee etc…
  • DAY 5 of your arrival, you MUST come to the clinic to have either a Rapid Antigen Test or a PCR test between 09:30am and 11:30am Mon-Sat or 11:00am and 12:00 Sunday (no appointment needed). After this, you will be free to enjoy the island as normal. The cost for this is US$30 (Rapid antigen) / US$100 (PCR) per person.
  • However, if you can provide proof of full vaccination against Covid-19 (at least 2 weeks before arrival) then quarantine is reduced to 48 hours. A certificate of Vaccination by an accredited authority is required.
  • 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.
