Following recent booster vaccinations, travellers from the end of October 2022 will not need to enter quarantine.

COVID-19 Travel Restrictions to be Lifted

Update from Administrator Jason Ivory

Tristan da Cunha crestThe rollout programme of COVID-19 booster vaccinations started in earnest week beginning 17th October 2022, and so far 146 boosters have been administered.

I am pleased to say that the uptake for the booster is very high which means we have been able to protect the community as much as possible. For this reason, with effect from the end of October 2022, we will removing the requirement for those travelling to Tristan to quarantine before boarding any of the vessels. Visitors will need to be fully vaccinated and (where applicable) have any relevant boosters.

I am currently considering whether to retain the requirement for people to be tested before travelling but need to clear any decision with Council.

Travel will no longer be limited to islanders and those on essential business. The Tourism Team is looking forward on welcoming back passengers from cruise ships during the forthcoming season.
