Health Requirements

Yellow fever vaccinations are required for visitors over the age of one year travelling from affected areas (as notified by the WHO).

While there are no other specific vaccinations required for visitors travelling to Barbados, it is advisable for you to be up to date on routine immunisations, such as for polio, tetanus-diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella, and the seasonal influenza vaccine.

Your personal physician may recommend preventative measures against mosquito-bourne diseases and commonly recommended vaccinations for Hepatitis A (for all travellers), and Hepatitis B (for long-stay visitors).

Due to the evolving situation with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Barbados has instituted measures to safeguard the health and safety of visitors and the local population. The current travel protocols are available here.

The Host Country will notify member states well in advance of the Conference of any special measures put in place to ensure a safe environment for visiting delegates.
