Montserrat approves access to Zone V

By Caribbean News Global contributor

BRADES, Montserrat – Montserrat cabinet of ministers approved a proposal to improve access to Zone V (Plymouth) for tourism starting Friday, 1 June 2023.

The Montserrat cabinet gave its nod on April 27, 2023, to ensure a clear and transparent process for access to the exclusion zone for tourism purposes, reports the government news portal.

“The new proposal involves the establishment of access wardens to provide controlled entry for all tour operators entering Plymouth under the direct supervision of the Disaster Management Coordination Agency (DMCA). The DMCA is the government entity designated by the Governor and the National Disaster Preparedness Response Advisory Committee (NDPRAC) to manage and coordinate all Access to Zone V as the Soufriere Hills Volcano remains active.”

The DMCA is recruiting five access wardens to work in the Exclusion Zone on a shift basis from Monday to Sunday and also on holidays. A fee of USD$160 will be charged for each tour to Plymouth and must be paid at the DMCA office on Yellow Hill Road.

“Certified Tour Operators are required to complete a Tour Application Request Form 24 hours before their scheduled trip to Plymouth. The DMCA will only process applications submitted by trained and certified Tour and Taxi operators on Montserrat.”
