COVID-19 Tests and Lab on Location

(Passports are required)
Starting on January 26, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will require passengers flying into the United States to have a negative COVID-19 test prior to travel. This applies even if the passenger's final destination is another country, but they are on a connecting flight that enters the United States first.

International travelers and US citizens will need to have a COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to their departure from St. Maarten and present documentation of their test results (written or electronic copy). The test required is the nasal swab viral antigen test or nucleic acid amplification test. Children aged two and older must also be tested.

To help you comply with this new travel ruling and for your convenience, Simpson Bay Resort, Marina & Spa has contracted with Health Care Laboratory St. Maarten, which will make viral antigen tests available on site at special rates for our members and guests. The test premises are located in our Member Services Center office (next to Hollywood Casino).

All guests taking the test must bring their passports in order for the Lab to process their names correctly.

The island of St. Maarten is now open to visitors from all over the world, and Simpson Bay Resort, Marina & Spa remains committed to creating a safe and clean environment for our guests and members to enjoy.

Visitors must take a COVID-19 PCR test and receive negative results within 5 days (120 hours) prior the date of arrival. With effective date of November 25th, Antigen Testing will be allowed too.

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.

We kindly ask our visitors to read the government's safety protocol and travel requirements before traveling to St. Maarten, posted at: https://stmaartenupdates.com
