Cruise ship passengers arriving on transit calls must have embarked at the respective homeport with a valid negative Standard, Rapid PCR or Antigen test taken within 3 days.

They will be allowed to disembark and take “bubble excursions”.  Bubble excursions include the following:

  • Tours approved for sale by tour operators as authorized by cruise lines.
  • Tours approved for sale by independent tour operators and taxi operators as authorized by the Government of Barbados following the appropriate health and security requirements.

Those wishing to engage in a tour must have a pre-booked tour confirmed by email from an approved tour operator for pick-up in the Bridgetown Port or take approved taxis dispatched from secure designated taxi facilities within the Bridgetown Port.

Tours and excursions can be booked either on arrival at the port or directly with independent tour operators.

These requirements are so visitors can continue to visit the island safely and responsibly.

Around 800,000 cruise passengers visit Barbados each year with more than 25 cruise lines visiting the port.
