Currently, the following antigen tests have been approved: Abbott (CGIA Panbio COVID-19 Ag rapid test), Becton Dickinson (CGIA BD Veritor COVID-19 test) and Roche (SD Biosensor F test). The list of acceptable tests is constantly being reviewed as government continues to seek the most accurate alternatives to the PCR test.

Children under age 10 are exempt from testing. If not in compliance you may be required to take the test at SXM (at your expense) prior to being allowed to exit the airport. The following site may be helpful in finding locations in your state where the RT-PCR test can be administered and quick results received:

2) Fill Out Health Declaration Form : All arriving guests must completely fill out and print the Health Declaration form online at or
and upload their negative RT-PCR test within 5 days or their negative antigen test result within 48 hours. You must bring the printed form with you along with your test result. IMPORTANT: Make sure the word “NASAL” and letters “PCR” BOTH appear on the print-out of the test results if this is the test you are using.

3) Health Screening & Monitoring : Expect mandatory temperature checks upon arrival. Passengers exhibiting symptoms will be subject to COVID-19 testing (rapid test and or RT-PCR test) at an additional cost to the traveler. All visitors are required to self-monitor body temperature and possible flu like symptoms throughout their stay on island and will receive an automated daily email alert providing a link for submitting the required information online. All travelers should bring along a thermometer for taking body temperature. Please note: travelers are required to have health insurance coverage.

4) Princess Juliana Airport Travel Safety Measures : a) Restricted Access: The airport will be limited to passengers and employees only. b) Increased Sanitation: SXM airport has increased sanitation requirements to disinfect all areas exposed to human contact and transmission. SXM airport personnel with direct contact with visitors are required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

5) Facial Coverings : All arriving and departing passengers are required to wear a face mask inside the airport at all times. While on island, face masks are required to enter any businesses including, grocery store, pharmacies, clothing and souvenir stores, banks, and personal services, etc. Hand sanitizing stations are provided upon entering and exiting these establishments. For dining, social distancing is observed between tables. Wear your mask when entering any restaurant or bar and then remove it to eat or drink. All service people wear masks. It is responsible to put it back on when a service provider approaches to protect them.

6) Masks are NOT required on the beach! : We ask that visitors please act responsibly in helping us keep the island as safe as possible. St Martin has very limited hospital facilities so we must be vigilant!

Regulations may be modified as needed to keep the safety and health of residents and guests at the highest possible level. Travelers should check with their airline or St Maarten govt ( for the most current entry requirements

Thank you for your understanding and consideration!
Together we will beat this crisis!
