“Mandatory Negative PCR Tests” are now required to be completed before entry into Dominica.

That’s according to Mignon Rolle-Shillingford, Head of the Health Promotion Unit.

Shillingford says the “Mandatory PCR Tests” must be done within 24 to 72 hours before arrival.

“So, when we talk about the protocols of entry for Dominica, we talk about the pre-arrival protocols and it is very simple,” the Head of the Health Promotion Unit said.

“So, the first thing, you have to have a mandatory negative PCR Test, not Rapid and this must be done from a nationally approved state-regulated lab and must be done within 24 to 72 hours before arrival.”

Shillingford says persons are also required to fill out an online health screening questionnaire.

“You have to complete an online health screening questionnaire with the uploaded results of the PCR Tests and this should be done within 24 hours prior to arrival. So, these are vital to ensure that you receive an emailed notification of approval,” she said.

A generated code will be sent to the persons who have filled in the necessary form via their email address, according to Shillingford.

“That code will start with the letter QU and some numbers,” she said.
