If the current requirements are "no COVID test required" for fully vaccinated and boostered, they might relax the requirement to apply for entry.

It would be nice to allow request for entry more than 3 days in advance. 7 days maybe? Just a thought.

But why? If no test required the EHAS authorization comes back pretty quick. 3 days is more than enough. Even when uploading a test results it’s more than enough.

I wonder if anyone who is fully vaxxed and boosted has been denied by EHAS and required to be tested? We are due to be in SXM in two weeks. We are fully vaxxed and boosted. On my covid card the first two shots are recorded with a sticker. The booster shot is hand written below the stickers by the pharmacist at Riteaid. It specifies: #3 - Pfizer - the lot number - the date - RiteAid. I am hoping the hand written (versus sticker) will not be a problem for EHAS.
I have been following your board for years - I appreciate all the information I have been able to garner! You guys are the best.

I received my boost shot yesterday 1/4/22 and fly out 1/14/22. Does this qualify or will I need to take a test?

Thanks.

Should not be an issue. Most cards I've seen have been handwriten. My first 2 shots were handwriten and boosrer at Costco was a sticker only because I had card laminated before booster.

I thought as of January 1 2022 a negative antigen test is required for those who are fully vaccinated to enter SXM from USA. Unvaccinated need to have a rtPCR test to enter.Where are you getting the information about NO covid test is required to enter ?

"ffective January 1, 2022, all countries will be classified as very high risk until further notice with Covid-19 test requirements based on the vaccination status:
fully vaccinated with booster shot received. Booster shot should be at least 2 wks. old and not exceed 9 months since administered: no covid-19 test required
fully vaccinated 18 yrs. and older without booster shot: 48 hrs. rt-PCR or 24 hr. Ag test required
fully vaccinated older than 5 and younger than 18 yrs. without booster shot: no covid-19 test required
non -vaccinated: 48 hrs. rt-PCR test required"
Off the EHAS site.

My wife was approved yesterday with 2 on the front and 1 on the back but we had made it into a single-page pdf. Actually, once you say that you have a booster, it asks you to upload another document so you could put the back side there. Since mine was all on the front, I just gave them the same as the line above.

Must have been big stickers. My booster sticker fit on line 3. You might want to copy both sides onto a single sheet then scan that for your submission.

I also had my card laminated (entries were handwritten). When I received my booster, they gave me a second card. frown

Is that typically how a vaccine works?

And that is due to a different strain each year. This has become 3-4 shots of a vaccine within 12 months in some cases.

Will probably need one every year like the flu, which is also in the covid family.
