More Details

Between the French islands of Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the south, lies a country known for its abundant natural beauty. Dominica is every eco-travelers' major paradise. Not to mention its unspoiled, panoramic, lush landscapes.

The island nation of Dominica in the Caribbean will be reopening its borders for international tourism on August 7, 2020.

Who Can Travel To Dominica?

The Nature Island will be reopening its borders to all travelers from all countries under normal immigration policies. All travelers must go through the health and testing entry requirements in order to access the country.

What Are The Entry Requirements?

  • All travelers must obtain a negative COVID-19 test result recorded 24 to 72 hours before arriving.
  • Travelers must complete an online questionnaire for at least 24 hours in advance and show their clearance to travel.
  • Upon arrival, travelers will undergo a series of checks, including a rapid test.
  • If by any chance that a traveler presents any signals deemed unsafe, such as a positive result, they will be quarantined at a government facility or a certified hotel.

Where Can Travelers Stay?

The island's largest resort, Cabrits Resort and Spa Kempinski Dominica, is the first to confirm its reopening. Dominica's top eco-resort, the Rosalie Bay Resort is already open. The luxury Secret Bay and The Fort Young in Roseau are both likely to open on August 7, 2020.

What To Expect From Dominica?

Stringent protocols are expected from the opening of tourism on August 7th. The country is excited to once again be offering travelers an opportunity to experience the Nature Island of the Caribbean. Dominica's top priority is to keep travelers and its residents free from the spread of the virus.

The Minister said that health and safety guidelines have been carefully deliberated and formally announced. This is to keep the probability that the new cases of COVID-19 may be recorded once the borders are reopened as low as possible.

What's more interesting, Dominica's many famous nature-based activities, secluded beaches, and long meandering rain forest hikes are perfectly positioned for a socially distanced travel experience. And what better way remove the stresses of the pandemic than fully indulging ourselves to the great outdoors and wholesome cuisines of Dominica.

Today, Dominica is one of the safest countries to travel to with no COVID-19 deaths and only 18 recorded cases. So we truly believe that this Caribbean country is ready to welcome you to explore its very own Trafalgar Falls. The boiling lake and Papillote tropical gardens, to name a few, are about to open its lavish scenic beauty for us.
