Anguilla Premier Dr Ellis Webster

Foreign nationals seeking to take up work in Anguilla will only be issued with work permits if they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

This will apply to new applications and renewals.

The government has also stipulated that any person eligible for vaccination and representing Anguilla overseas at a national level will be required to be vaccinated. Proof of vaccination will also be required for entry into festivals within Anguilla.

According to an official statement, “The Government is also considering whether there is potential to safely reinstate ferry services to other destinations for day trips for fully vaccinated persons only.”

Premier Dr Ellis Webster said, “COVID-19 is a devastating virus, I have seen first-hand the horrific effects it has to individual health, how it has completely stretched health services to their limits and how it has created significant financial distress.

In urging residents to get vaccinated, Dr Ellis pointed that, “As an island, with limited health resources, we remain vulnerable but it is not sustainable, to operate within a restricted environment - vaccination is our best option for managing the risks of Covid-19 and for preventing such suffering and devastation here in Anguilla.”

A recent surge of COVID-19 cases in Anguilla has abated.
