Saint Barthélemy has officially reopened its borders for tourism on June 22, 2020, and allowed visitors from all countries to enter.

Latest update - On February 3, 2021, the French government has decided to close the borders of its overseas territories indefinitely, including the Caribbean islands of St. Barts, St. Martin, Martinique, and Guadeloupe. This is to protect the islands from the deadlier and more contagious variants of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
Mask is required to be worn in all public indoor, public transport and certain outdoor areas where social distancing is not possible.
Authorities in the French Overseas Territories in the Caribbean have eased the additional restrictions introduced by the French national government to combat the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Officials consider the current risk of transmission in Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthelemy, and Saint Martin to be low. Along with adequate hospital capacity, and appropriate testing and tracking levels of COVID-19, the following businesses and activities are allowed to reopen and resume activity:
Cafes, bars, and restaurants
Retail stores and malls
Museums, monuments, and parks
Gyms, fitness centers, pools, and entertainment venues
Most schools and colleges will gradually reopen
Most beaches are open to public access
All businesses must enhance sanitation procedures, ensure social distancing measures, and limit the number of customers within their premises.
The use of a facemask is mandatory on all public transport. Gatherings of more than 10 people remain banned.
