In a bid to continue the boom in tourism that has come with increased demand for vacationers, travel companies around the world are rapidly adopting blockchain technology. Omicron is one of them and they’re working on plans to launch their own cryptocurrency as well.

Omicron is a driving Caribbean travel protocol. Omicron has been in Jamaica since the beginning of time, but they are changing their rules to make it more difficult for people to get around on the island.

Omicron Driving Caribbean Travel Protocol Changes

In response to rising COVID-19 omicron variant infection rates in major source markets, Caribbean destinations are modifying tourist regulations and imposing curfews. Several nations, including Barbados, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands, have announced new tourist requirements.

Barbados visitors must provide documentation of a negative quick COVID-19 PCR test result received within one day of arrival from a certified or recognized laboratory or healthcare practitioner, or a negative RT-PCR test result obtained within three days of arrival, starting January 7.

Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. officials stated in a statement that the Ministry of Health and Wellness is “closely following the developing issue with the new Omicron COVID-19 version.”

In the meantime, starting January 4, all businesses in Puerto Rico will shut between midnight and 5 a.m., with the exception of health services, testing sites, labs, and pharmacies. Through January 18, all indoor and outdoor parties will be restricted to a maximum capacity of 250 people, and alcohol sales will be forbidden between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m.

Visitors arriving on domestic flights (including flights originating from U.S. cities) must produce documentation of a negative antigen or RT-PCR COVID-19 test result from an approved health professional within 48 hours of arrival, regardless of vaccination status.

Passengers who arrive in Puerto Rico without a negative test result may be fined if they do not take one within 48 hours. Travelers who have not been vaccinated, even those who have had a negative test result, must stay in quarantine for seven days after arriving.

On-site PCR testing is available at the Luis Munoz Marin International airport in San Juan from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week at collection locations in terminals A, B, and C. In Terminal B, you may get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
