Health and Safety Measures
The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is pleased to once again welcome visitors to its shores. Since reopening its borders on October 31, 2020, the destination continues to be one of the least impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and currently remains one of the safest destinations in the Caribbean.
Effective May 29, 2021, only fully vaccinated travellers will be allowed entry into St. Kitts and Nevis. Non-vaccinated children under the age of 18 travelling with fully vaccinated parents are welcome.
Below are the travel requirements for fully vaccinated travellers:
- A traveller is considered fully vaccinated when two weeks have passed since receiving their second dose of a two dose vaccine series (Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna or AstraZeneca/Oxford) or two weeks after they have received a single dose vaccine (Johnson + Johnson).
- All travellers must complete the Travel Authorization Form on the national website, including uploading proof of vaccination and proof of hotel booking. Proof of vaccination is a scanned copy of the traveller’s official COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. Upon submission and verification of their vaccination card and completion of their travel authorization form, international travellers will receive authorization of their vaccination card and a KN number.
- Upon submission of a completed travel form, travellers must upload their official COVID-19 RT-PCR negative test result from a CLIA/CDC/UKAS approved lab accredited with ISO/IEC 17025 standard taken 72 hours prior to travel. There are no exceptions to the 72-hour timeframe.
- Upon submission of the copy of their official vaccination card and copy of their COVID -19 RT-PCR test negative result, the traveller’s information will be reviewed and they will receive the approval letter to enter the Federation.
- For their trip, travellers should bring a copy of their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card and their negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test. Please note, acceptable COVID-19 RT-PCR tests must be taken by nasopharyngeal sample. Self-samples, rapid tests or home tests will be considered invalid.
- Travellers will undergo a health screening at the airport which includes a temperature check and a health questionnaire. Upon arrival, if a fully vaccinated traveller is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 during the health screening, they can be required to undergo a RT- PCR test at the airport at their own cost (150 USD).
We have endeavored to keep current with applicable St. Kitts and Nevis protocols, but each guest is responsible for complying with the requirements imposed for travel. Please refer directly to the local government website for the latest information.

Once cleared and having exited the airport, guests will be directed to a Tourism desk where they will be asked to provide their name, passport information and where they are staying. A Four Seasons team member will be on-hand to assist with the transportation process:
- Incoming passengers will be transported to their accommodations via taxi operators who have been certified by the St. Kitts or Nevis Tourism Authority via the “Travel Approved”program. Each vehicle must have a visible “St. Kitts & Nevis Travel Approved Seal” on its windshield. Only “St. Kitts & Nevis Travel Approved” vehicles can collect passengers upon arrival at the airport.
- Departures from the airport to Christophe Harbour will be staggered and taxi van capacity will be 6 guests per vehicle. Windows will be opened to allow for fresh air ventilation during the scenic 15-minute drive.
- At Christophe Harbour, guests will be met by a Four Seasons team member who will offer them a complimentary bottled beverage (local beer, Ting or water) at the marina prior to boarding the boat for the transfer across to the Resort. Departures will be staggered and boat capacity will range from 8 to 18 guests per boat. Guests will be required to wear a mask during the relaxing 15-minute boat ride.
- Private transfer options can also be arranged for our guests. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Luggage will travel separately.
Any guest who fails the health screening at the airport will be required to take a COVID-19 test. Those guests will then be transferred privately to the Resort where they will quarantine until test results are returned. If results are negative, the guests will proceed with their planned vacation. If results are positive, guests will need to be isolated until they recover and obtain a negative test result (additional costs apply).
Upon arrival at the Resort, guests will be met at the pier and escorted to the health screening area. A temperature check and a health questionnaire will be carried out for each guest and once guests have successfully passed screening, they will be issued a colour-coded wrist band. Daily temperature checks will be carried out throughout the duration of their stay and will take place at the first point of entry after leaving the guestroom (lobby, restaurant, pro shop, etc.).
All Resort employees will be wearing face coverings and, in accordance with the advice of medical experts and industry best practices, all guests (ages 10 and above) will be required to wear a face covering when in public indoor spaces and when receiving service in guestrooms. Face coverings are strongly recommended for children age 2 to 9 years old. In addition, local Federation regulations mandate guests wear face coverings when dining at outdoor restaurants or bars at all times, other than when they are actively eating or drinking. Guests are also required to wear face coverings in public outdoor spaces and when walking along Resort pathways.
After screening, guests will be directed to their guestroom via human arrow signs and invited to return to the group hospitality desk on a flow basis to confirm activities. If a guest develops COVID-19 during their stay and are unable to return home as scheduled, the Resort follows strict protocols from the St. Kitts and Nevis Ministry of Health as well as Lead With Care guidelines:
- The guest would be placed in isolation for a minimum of 14 days, or sent to the hospital depending on the severity of their symptoms.
- Regular temperature checks will be conducted.
- The guest will only be able leave The Federation on a commercial carrier once the 14 day period is over and they receive two consecutive negative PCR test results.
- A COVID-19 Recovery Rate of USD 325 per night will be offered along with a 15% F&B discount.
Fully vaccinated air travellers will be asked to “Vacation in Place” for four days:
- All fully vaccinated air travellers are free to move throughout the Resort property, interact with other guests and partake in Resort activities only.
- Fully vaccinated travellers staying beyond four days are required to be tested on Day 4 of their stay (USD 150 costs apply). Once their test is returned negative, they may integrate into the Federation participating in tours, attractions, restaurants, beach bars, retail shopping, etc.
- Fully vaccinated travellers are not required to submit an exit RT-PCR test. If a pre-departure test is still required for the country of destination, the RT-PCR test will be taken 72 hours prior to departure (USD 150 costs apply).
- Unvaccinated children under 18 years of age, travelling with fully vaccinated parents will observe the same period of Vacation in Place as their parents.
