Anguilla’s Ministry of Tourism is preparing for Phase Two of the tourism reopening, slated to start on November 1st, 2020.
According to a media release issued by Caribbean Tourism Organization, in Phase Two, hotels and resorts, along with the villas, have been added into the approved and certified accommodations mix for visitors to the island.
Furthermore, the government is introducing the bubble concept, which allows properties to safely offer their guests access to a variety of approved amenities, services, and activities while they stay in place.
These vary by property but may include watersports, select indoor and outdoor games, beach yoga, and other activities, provided that they are implemented in accordance with general COVID 19 protocols, such as social distancing, sanitizing and hygiene practices.
A revised fee schedule has also been introduced to help offset the steep costs of managing the re-entry protocols and procedures. For visitors staying at a pre-approved property, for a period of less than three months, the fees listed below are effective immediately:
5 DAYS OR LESS
Individual Traveler: US$300
Family: Main applicant US$300 + US$250 per additional family member.
6 DAYS TO 3 MONTHS (90 DAYS)
Individual Traveler: US$400
Couple: US$600 + US$250 per additional family member.
Family: Main applicant US$400 + US$250 per additional family member.
This fee covers two (2) tests per person, surveillance and costs associated with the additional public health presence.
For extended stays of over 3 months and up to 12 months, the original fees still apply, as follows:
3 MONTHS TO 12 MONTHS
Individual Traveler: US$ 2,000
Family (4 persons): US$ 3,000 + US$ 250 per additional family member.
Family: Main Applicant + three (3) dependents.
- a child or step-child under the age of 26 years;
- any other relative who is, by reason of age or any infirmity of body or mind, wholly dependent on that person for his/her subsistence.
This fee covers two (2) tests per person, surveillance and costs associated with the additional public health presence, the cost of extended immigration time/entry and a digital work permit.
All fees are payable only on approval of the travel application.
