Travellers To Grenada Now Require Travel Authorization Certificate

PR – Beginning on December 1, 2020, all travellers to  Grenada will be required to complete an online application in order to receive a Pure Safe  Travel Authorization Certificate to enter Grenada. 

The Government of Grenada, through the Ministry of Health, has partnered with the  Amber Group, a technology company headquartered in Jamaica, to create a  comprehensive, user-friendly, secure and efficient online application that will enhance  the border protocols for entry into Grenada. 

The certificate is a health clearance authorization to enter Grenada, and is similar in intent  to the forms that have been used by travellers so far, to enter the country. The difference  with this new system is that it is interactive and inclusive, requiring that all health and  other relevant information be entered and submitted digitally.  

The process is also easier and less time-consuming. Incoming passengers will also be able  to upload their certified negative test results onto the form for one complete and secure  submission. Each individual must complete an application, even if travelling as part of a  group. 

The application, which also makes provisions for quarantine requests and confirmed flight  information, must be submitted at least 48 hours prior to departure to Grenada. Once  approved, the individual will receive a digital Pure Safe Travel Authorization  Certificate for travel to Grenada. A record of the certificate in printed or electronic form  must be retained by the traveller for presentation to the travel agents at the check-in  counter from their point of origin. 

The health clearance certificate is an authorization to travel to Grenada. Travellers will  still be screened on arrival, and processed through immigration. Official entry into  Grenada will only be granted by Health and Immigration officials at the point of entry. 

The Ministry of Health reassures the public that the Pure Safe Travel Authorization is one  added layer of security, designed to further protect the Tri-Island State from an outbreak  of COVID-19.
