Guatemala, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Madagascar They are the latest three countries to announce last week that they will lift all travel restrictions and entry requirements for visitors related to Covid.
The lifting of restrictions will include scrapping all Covid screening and ensuring vaccination requirements for incoming travellers. Now it will be just a recommendation, not a necessity for travel..
We’ve got all the details below.
St. Kitts and Nevis removes travel restrictions
From August 15, 2022In the island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis, all entry requirements related to Covid, including vaccination screening and proof of vaccination, have been officially waived.
This is a major change as under the previous guidelines unvaccinated people were not allowed to travel to the Caribbean country.
Prior to the announcement, fully vaccinated travelers entering St. Kitts and Nevis were required to provide proof of vaccination and non-vaccinated travelers were denied entry. Both of these restrictions have now been removed.
All international immigrants arriving in St. Kitts are now required to complete the country’s official online Immigration and Customs Enforcement ED form prior to travel and present the receipt upon arrival at the airport.
Travelers will need a valid email address to do this, as the form will be emailed a receipt that can be downloaded to your phone or printed as a paper receipt.
Guatemala waives all entry requirements for travelers
Effective August 12, 2022., all entry requirements for covid have now been waived in Guatemala in Central America. The news makes Guatemala the fourth country on the continent to waive entry requirements for international arrivals linked to Covid-19, after Belize, Costa Rica and El Salvador.
Here are the latest updates and instructions for travelers in Guatemala:
- Proof of vaccination against Covid-19 is not required to enter Guatemala at any international land or air border or to obtain any services within the country.
- Travelers are no longer required to present a negative covid test to enter Guatemala.
- Anyone with symptoms of Covid is advised not to travel.
- It is still recommended to continue to be vigilant with general public health measures such as hand hygiene and physical distancing where possible.

Guatemala partially reopened to travelers in September 2020 and entry restrictions have been back and forth since then. After last week’s announcement, however, all Vivid-related restrictions in Guatemala are no longer in place.
