Starting on October 1, Cayman Islands borders began to gradually reopen to select groups of visitors.
Reopening decisions will continue to be evaluated and processes are subject to change depending on the epidemiology data available.
The Cayman Islands have rather strict travel policies at the moment but we consider this iconic place to be well worth the effort. For this reason, we want to walk you through all the information available for travelers.
I want to go to Cayman Island for the Holidays, is that possible?
Well, you probably shouldn’t. TheCabinet has advised visitors to avoid visits for non-essential purposes. We expect this advice will change soon.
Do I need health insurance?
Yes. You do. You will need to submit proof of health insurance that covers COVID-19-related costs. You could also show proof of wealth enough to cover any medical treatment while in the islands.
Are Airports open in The Cayman Islands?
Owen Roberts International Airport and Charles Kirkconnell International Airport remain closed until further notice for tourism.
Will I be tested on arrival?
Yes. All travelers will be tested for COVID-19 on arrival and their results should be available in the next 72 hours. Having a negative test result does not mean you are free from your quarantine. You need to complete all 14 days of quarantine.
Do I have to quarantine?
Yes. You do. You will be expected to quarantine for 14 days regardless of where you come from or the results of your COVID-19 tests.
You need to apply for an Approval to Travel. Complete the form and submit the necessary documents.
Can I quarantine at my chosen hotel/rental property?
Probably not. The available options for accommodation during your quarantine are:
Government quarantine facility
Private quarantine facility
Personal residence. You will need to wear a geofencing device.
Choose one of these when you complete your travel application. Before travelling you will be notified if your chosen accommodation for quarantine was approved.
