(Dominica News Online) The Government of Dominica has announced the resumption of ferry services to Dominica, effective November 15, 2021.

“Dominica has shared a long history of transportation linkages with the French Antilles which facilitated trade, tourism and social connections. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and closure of the French borders, ferry services had been halted since March 2020,” Shekira Lockhart,  Parliamentary Secretary in the ministry responsible for international transport, said in a statement today. “Nevertheless, we have been working closely with agents and the Ministry of Health to establish protocols for the restart of ferry service.”

According to Lockhart, the tourism industry stands to benefit from this move as the French West Indies in particular, make up a significant percentage of stay over visitors.

“Therefore, we look forward to welcoming many more visitors back to Dominica,” she stated.

The approved protocols are the same as travelling to Dominica by air.
