Grenada to introduce new entry requirements, effective May 1

By Caribbean News Global contributor

ST GEORGES, Grenada – The government of Grenada is set to introduce new quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated persons entering the country, effective May 1, 2021.

A press release from the office of the prime minister specified that “persons providing proof of full vaccination will only be required to quarantine for up to 48 hours, pending a negative result from a PCR test, administered on entry. Travelers will still be required to provide a negative PCR test result, valid up to 72-hours prior o the start of travel.”

An application for travel authorisation must be completed prior to travel – besides, a PCR test to be administered in Grenada, must be paid via the government’s payment portal.

The government of Grenada new entry requirements describe vaccinated persons in two categories.

“Persons are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose of a [two-dose] vaccine such as AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna – or two weeks after a single dose, in the case of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.”

Quarantine procedures mandate arriving passengers “will not be permitted to leave quarantine until medical clearance is granted,” and “persons who are not fully vaccinated or unable to provide proof of their vaccination will be required to quarantine for up to seven days, with a PCR test being administered on day five.”

Prime minister, Dr Keith Mitchell reiterated that “the government’s policies throughout the pandemic have been geared towards safeguarding the health of the population but at the same time, these policies have remained agile enough to adapt to the changes taking place as the pandemic evolves.”
