Solomon Islands will fully open borders for tourists from July 1

Formally easing restrictions means that from this date — July 1 — foreign citizens can re-enter the country.

However, restrictive health measures remain: all arriving travelers must pass a negative PCR test within 72 hours before crossing the border, and upon arrival — 12 hours are allotted for this — receive a negative rapid antigen test result.

Next. Entry into the country from abroad will be allowed only to those tourists who have completed a full course of vaccination. Exception — children, and this is because they cannot be vaccinated.

The current quarantine period for international travelers is 14 days, but on July 1 this will be reduced to six days. But that's not all: after its completion, foreigners will have to stay in the capital Honiara until the end of quarantine measures, that is, three more days. After that, you will have to pass another rapid test, and if the result is negative, you can begin to rest according to your plan.

More than 80 percent of tour operators, hoteliers and resort staff in the Solomon Islands have received training in the program “Additional precautions for minimum tourism standards» and implemented safe protocols for COVID-19 in preparation for the reopening of borders.
