QR code allows fully vaccinated SXM, BES residents to skip test

PHILIPSBURG: As of today, Monday, June 14, residents of Sint Maarten, Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba can enter Sint Maarten without a negative rt-PCR or antigen test once they are fully vaccinated for two weeks or more after their second dose in a two-dose series of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna vaccines or two weeks after a single-dose Johnson and Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

EHAS online system will now issue a QR code with each health authorization pre-approval as of June 9. This QR code is primarily meant to make travel and access on the island wherever required easier. For non-residents (tourists) their information will have a green background and residents information will

have an orange background.

If health authorization is pre-approved, passengers will receive a pre-authorization PDF via email.

Residents traveling from high-risk or banned countries will still be required to adhere to the test protocols as stipulated in the EHAS travel requirements, a QR code will also be issued as it will contain their COVID-19 test results. Passengers traveling  from high-risk counties are to keep the original rt-PCR or antigen test results even if they are vaccinated.
