St. Lucia Immigration and Public Health Requirements

As of March 1, 2023, the Saint Lucian Customs and Immigration division implemented a new online immigration form that needs to be filled out within 72 hours of arrival to the island. This is applicable to those entering the island via air only. Travelers coming in via sea will still be required to fill out paper forms.

The immigration form requires details about your flight, travel documents, place of stay, the number of travelers in your party and the nature of your visit. There is even a health information section, but the questions are pretty generic and travelers are not required to prove vaccination status or take any related tests prior to travel or on arrival.

Once the form is filled out, travelers will receive their receipt with a QR code which the immigration official will scan on arrival (whether it be printed or from your phone). If you somehow forget to complete the form, the two major airports have free Wi-Fi in order to allow entering guests to fill out the form before speaking to an officer.

Incorrect information on the form could result in a XCD $1,000 ($370 USD) fine.
