Sicily could have the next ‘island corridor’ despite increasing cases in Italy


THere are the Caribbean islands you could visit (although with restrictions on arrival) without having to isolate yourself on your return to the UK:1. Anguilla: test before departure

It can be open, but visitors to Anguilla face many obstacles while on vacation.

Registration requests, made through, should be updated with a negative PCR test performed three to five days before arrival. Subsequently, all arrivals are tested upon arrival, and again after ten days. During the first ten days, vacationers are required to stay in the accommodation of their choice, which may be a private villa, hotel or resort. It is only after a second negative test that they can move freely around Anguilla.

This process, however, is not cheap. Visitors will not only need to provide an insurance policy covering medical costs related to Covid-19, but they will also be charged $ 1,000 (£ 770) per person for a stay of less than three months. The fee covers testing, additional health personnel required during your visit, and port and accommodation surveillance and security. A family of up to four will be charged $ 1,500 (£ 1,155) in total.

2. Antigua and Barbuda: pre-departure test

All passengers 12 years and older arriving by air in Antigua and Barbuda, including those transiting through the country, must provide proof of a negative PCR test performed no later than seven days prior to arrival. Other health examinations are in place at VC Bird International Airport and another check-in on arrival may be required.

3: Barbados: test before departure

All visitors must present proof of a negative Covid test carried out no later than 72 hours before arrival. All arrivals from the UK must stay at an approved hotel (own expense) or government facility free of charge, until they receive a second negative test result 2 to 3 days after arrival. Once they get the second departure, they are free to explore the island and leave the designated accommodation. They will also be asked to monitor their health and register with public health officials by call or SMS.

4: Bermuda: test before departure
