The Home Office has made the following announcement on the East Caribbean Visa Waiver Test on visitors:

The UK completed a global review of visa requirements for visitors coming to the country last year.

As a result of this the government considered introducing visa regimes for two countries in the eastern Caribbean – St Lucia and Dominica. On the 02 March 2011, a joint Written Ministerial Statement signed by the Home Secretary and the Foreign Secretary, was laid in Parliament stating that a visa regime would not be introduced to St Lucia and Dominica.

Dominica and St Lucia have made concrete improvements to the immigration, border control and identity systems which would not have happened without the Test. In recognition of the progress made, visitors from Dominica and St Lucia will therefore continue to be able to travel to the UK without the need for a visa. Ends.
