Foreign Office Travel Advice
- The Foreign and Commonwealth Office publishes regularly updated travel information on its website www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice which you are recommended to consult before booking and in good time before departure. Virgo Villas Ltd are unable to accept any liability in respect of prevailing travel protocols or local policies imposed by the government of Barbados.
- You are strongly recommended to take out comprehensive personal travel insurance for all members of your party. Some suppliers require that
you do so. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs to cover
risks including, but not limited to any loss or damage, the cost of cancellation by you, cancellation or curtailment in the event of “Force
Majeure” and assistance (including repatriation) in the event of medical treatment, accident or illness. Please read your policy details on
receipt and take them with you on holiday.
- It is the party leader’s responsibility to ensure that all members of the party are in possession of all necessary travel and health
documents before departure. All costs incurred in obtaining such documentation must be paid by you. Unless you tell us otherwise, we are
entitled to assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire
duration of the arrangements you chose to purchase. We regret we cannot accept any liability if you are refused entry onto any transport into
Barbados due to failure on your part to carry all required documentation.
- British citizens require a full 10 year passport valid for a period of at least 6 months beyond their holiday return date and at present a
visa is not required to enter Barbados. Entry requirements into Barbados may change and you must check the up to date position in good time
before departure. A full British passport presently can take up to 6 weeks to obtain. If you or any member of your party is 16 or over and
haven't yet got a passport we therefore recommend that you should apply for one at least 6 weeks before your holiday. The UK Passport Service
has to confirm your identity before issuing your first passport and will ask you to attend an interview in order to do this. If you or any
member of your party is not a British citizen or holds a non-British passport, you must check passport and visa requirements with the Embassy
or Consulate of the country(ies) to or through which you are intending to travel.

surgery and from the National Travel Health Network and Centre www.travelhealthpro.org.uk
- Vaccination and other health requirements/recommendations are subject to change at any time. Please therefore check with a doctor or clinic
not less than six weeks prior to departure to ensure that you have met the necessary requirements and have the applicable information.
