Anguilla's Phase 2 Opening: For Arrivals Nov. 1 Onward

Anguilla has zero cases of COVID-19 and has been officially categorized by the World Health Organization as having “no cases” of COVID-19.

Because of this unique position Anguilla is taking a careful approach to its re-opening.

Phase 2 includes the re-opening of approved hotels and resorts, as well as villas.

The Government of Anguilla has introduced the "bubble" concept whereby guests can quarantine on hotel property and enjoy use of the hotel's amenities.


  • Complete pre-registration on the official Anguilla tourism website.
  • Insurance which covers COVID-19 medical costs and full hospitalization, doctors’ visits, prescriptions and air ambulance.
    • Our family's recommendation for medical insurance? Get in touch with Gabriel Bigotti of GB Health. Gabriel will find the best policy for you. He has consistently gone above and beyond for our family. We've been insured through him since 2008 and can't say enough good things about him. Visit Gabriel's website for details.

  • Covid-19 Testing Prior to Arrival & During Your Stay

    • A negative PCR test result obtained three to five days prior to arrival is required.
    • Upon arrival, visitors will be given a PCR test.
    • A second test will be administered on day 10 of your visit, for those originating from low-risk countries, and on day 14 for guests arriving from higher-risk countries.
  • First 10-14 Days of Stay

    • Remain quarantined at your approved location for 10-14 days.
    • Undergo regular health monitoring during this period.
    • Obtain a negative PCR COVID-19 test to be released from quarantine.

Following that final negative Coronavirus test, you are free to explore the island.


Executing this program with care is of the utmost importance to protect Anguilla and its citizens. The additional protocols (above) will be costly. As such, the Government of Anguilla has put the following fees in place.

    For stays 5 days or less

  • Individual Traveler: US$300
  • Couple: $500
  • Family: Main applicant US$300 + US$250 per additional family member.

    For stays 6 days - 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 3 - 12 months:

  • Individual Traveler: US$2,000
  • Family (4 persons): US$ 3,000 + US$ 250 per additional family member.
