The Eastern Caribbean island of Dominica is now open for tourism. The “Nature Island” officially reopened its borders to international travellers (including those from the United States) on August 7, Caribbean Journal has reported.  

All travellers to Dominica must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours prior to the day of their arrival. They must complete Dominica’s COVID-19 travel screening questionnaire, at least 24 hours prior to travel.

Discover Dominica Authority CEO Colin Piper told Caribbean Journal that all travellers will be tested via Rapid Diagnostic Test upon arrival. 

Those who are tested will be subject to mandatory quarantine at an approved facility or a government-certified hotel awaiting their results. If positive, travellers will be quarantined until released. 

A number of Dominica’s leading hotels have reopened to coincide with the tourism relaunch. Those hotels include the ultra-luxe Secret Bay, its sister resort in Roseau, the Fort Young Hotel; the Rosalie Bay eco-resort; and the Champs hotel in Portsmouth, among others.
