Commenting on Barbados being added to the travel ‘Green List’, founder Chris Parra says “We are delighted with the news that Barbados will be on the green list and are very ready to welcome British visitors to the island again. With 33% of our international visitors coming from the UK in a typical year, the absence of British visitors was noticed and missed last summer.

“Barbados has handled the pandemic extremely well with low rates of infection and tourism businesses and restaurants are implementing strict health and safety measures to keep visitors safe..

“We realise that some will be nervous about travelling abroad, so want to reassure visitors that the island is operating with strict health and safety protocols in place and as a business.”
