Caribbean residents are to provide negative tests before traveling to Canada

Effective January 7, 2021, the Government of Canada is requiring that all residents and travelers entering Canada from the Caribbean, provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test before their planned departure to Canada

As we’ve moved towards implementation of this policy on short notice, it is creating challenges and stands to place even greater economic hardship on the people and Governments of the Caribbean and thousands of Canadians who are currently in the Caribbean and scheduled to return in the coming weeks.
The mere announcement of the policy has resulted in an influx of cancellations by Canadians who were scheduled to travel to our region, further impacting our already fragile businesses and economies and keeping more employees from returning to work.
As the policy takes effect, in the coming days we anticipate many stranded Canadians being unable to return home due to their inability to get tests in the required time.
