Approved Quarantine villas Barbados

Blue  Sky Luxury is one of the leading Property Management companies in Barbados. Our vacation rentals brand is dedicated to providing our clients with the knowledge to make informed decisions. In a unique and difficult situation worldwide, Barbados has managed its COVID-19 case well. There has been no community spread on the island and most cases are imported.  Although the travel industry has been one of the hardest-hit markets, we are still seeing trends that provide hope for those with holiday homes in Barbados. As a villa owner in Barbados or a perspective in the business, we’ve put together our Top 5 FAQs on how to have your holiday home approved for quarantine.

1. Do you know what the process is for having your holiday home approved for quarantine for you or your guests?

The Barbados Government has a very clear, set process on how this can be achieved. It requires various correspondence with both the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Health and most importantly, it requires that a local property management company must be appointed for the home.

 

2. Do you need help registering your holiday rental home with the Barbados Tourism Product Authority (BTPA)?

Following the Tourism Levy Act, all tourist accommodations are required to be registered with the BTPA. Blue Sky Luxury has taken an active stance in providing information to our owners and guiding and ensuring they are compliant with this Act. There is specific information that is needed to complete this registration including providing the Tax Identification Number (TIN) for the property.

 

3. Do you need help registering your property to obtain your TIN with the Barbados Revenue Authority for Shared Economy Levy?

Any property in Barbados that offers short-term rentals, must charge their guests a shared economy levy which is collected and then subsequently filed and remitted to the BRA. To do this, a TIN must be assigned to the property by submitting the registration in the Tax Administration Management Information System (TAMIS) and providing the necessary documents to the BRA. Blue Sky Luxury offers this service to owners within our portfolio. While some other property management companies may refer owners to an accountant to provide this service, you do not need one for this; once we are appointed as the property manager for the home, we take on this responsibility on behalf of our owners.

 

4. Do you know that if you own a home and you do not offer it for holiday rental that you can still apply to get the property approved for quarantine for your stay?

Yes! This is possible and once again, there is a very clear, set process on how this can be achieved. For more information, please feel free to contact Blue Sky Luxury at (246) 622-4466 on how we can help as a local property management company must be appointed for the home.

 

5. Do you know there are other options for security (including technological solutions) other than hiring security guards?

Blue Sky Luxury works in conjunction with a security monitoring firm that offers various security solutions on a temporary, as-needed basis specifically for quarantine purposes. We will arrange for a site visit to determine what will work best for your home. Alternatively, the property can be monitored by a security guard, and Blue Sky Luxury works with reputable companies who offer our owners and guests preferred rates.

There are many positive and beneficial reasons for choosing Blue Sky Luxury to look after your home and knowledge about this process and the time and attention taken to ensure that all goes well during quarantine as we act as the single point of contact about Government-issued protocols for many of our owners and guests, especially as it relates to quarantine. We provide information and guidance on various processes such as transportation from the airport, pre-stocking of groceries/provision of ready-made meals, and in-villa COVID19 testing to name a few.

It is very important to us that we help our owners navigate through these challenging times – and not only from the property maintenance perspective – by keeping them informed at all times so they can make the best decisions about their home and ensure that they and their guests can continue to enjoy their time in Barbados.

Contact us today for more information on what we can do to partner with you to ensure your property is looked after the way you want it to be.

Barbados has had really great news over the past week. Officially, Barbados has reopened for international travel and is a COVID-19 free destination. We don’t take this lightly and we celebrate the hard work and dedication of our government, frontline workers and the entire populace of Barbados. Today, Friday, July 03, the UK Government noted Barbados on the official travel corridor list. What it effectively means for UK residents is you do not have to self-isolate on return to the UK if these are the only places you have been to or stopped in during the previous 14 days. This goes into effect from July 10, 2020. Read the full article on the gov.uk website

Key points from the article on rules of exemption for travel:

From 10 July 2020, you will not have to self-isolate when you arrive in England if you:

This applies to all travel to the UK, by train, ferry, coach, air or any other route.

If you have been to or stopped in a country that’s not on the travel corridor list you will have to self-isolate until 14 days have passed since you left that country
