Travel & Vaccinations

  • Do I need to be tested before my flight, even if I am fully vaccinated?

    Yes, everyone, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to take the PCR test no more than 7 days prior to boarding their plane to Antigua.

  • What does it mean to be fully vaccinated?

    In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:

    • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series
    • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine

    If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated.

    For more information, please visit the full guidelines provided by the CDC here.

  • Am I required to be fully vaccinated to study on campus?

    All students coming to campus will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID -19. Exceptions will be made for medical situations only and require documentation. Students must follow any guidelines set down by the Antigua government, or AUACOM. Failure to do so will result in not being able to participate in the educational program.

    At least two (2) weeks must have passed since the administration of the full vaccine dosage to be considered FULLY vaccinated.

  • When do we need to arrive at Antigua?

    All fully vaccinated students will need to be in Antigua 3 days before your in-person enrollment confirmation. This time period will allow for the quarantine and PCR testing.
