Travel & Vaccinations

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

    Yes. Everyone, regardless of vaccination status, will need to take a PCR test prior to boarding their plane to Antigua. For more information, please refer to the latest travel advisory from Antigua & Barbuda here.

  • 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

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

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

    All students coming to campus should be fully vaccinated for COVID -19. All students will be required to follow any guidelines set down by the Antiguan 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.
