The borders of Saint Lucia officially opened to international travelers on June 4, 2020 as part of Phase One of the responsible reopening plan. The Saint Lucian Government, through its Ministry of Health and Ministry of Tourism, along with Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA), private tourism businesses and local citizens are preparing to welcome international travelers. Saint Lucia is utilizing this time to refine the services available to provide the most enjoyable Phase One visitor experience. This includes running simulations to ensure that visitors and local residents will receive the highest level of protection and visitor experience standards at every step of their journey – from safely viewing the majestic Pitons to relaxing at beaches and hotels.
