The Grenadian government says it will only allow fully vaccinated visitors to enter the country both at the air and seaports.

The policy shift comes as the island moves to introduces more measures aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) that has so far infected 161 people and killed one other since March last year.

Minister of Tourism Dr Clarice Modeste said the Ministry of Health is insisting that 100 per cent of guests must be fully vaccinated.

She told reporters at the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) news conference that the health authorities want to make sure that all of the T’s are crossed and the I’s are dotted, and that Grenada’s protocol and requirements are being adhere to.

The policy of only fully vaccinated will be granted permission to enter the country will also extend to stay over passengers entering through the airport but there will be an exception for returning nationals.
