Cayman Islands to remove quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated travellers

GRAND CAYMAN ISLANDS — The Cayman Islands will be removing its quarantine requirement starting Nov. 20, 2021.

As part of Phase 4 of its reopening plan, the destination’s mandatory quarantine will be removed for all securely verified, fully vaccinated travellers. All travellers must declare travel and vaccination status via Travel Cayman.

Currently, vaccinated travellers must quarantine for seven days upon arrival while those who are unvaccinated are required to remain in quarantine for a minimum of 14 days.

Come Nov. 20, fully vaccinated will no longer need to quarantine, however, anyone aged five years or older must still take a pre-arrival PCR test 72 hours prior to departure. Negative test results must be presented upon airport check-in.

Unvaccinated visitors and those under the age of 12 are not allowed entry into the Cayman Islands.

“The health and security of our residents and visitors have always been the government’s number one priority, and our Covid experience throughout the pandemic has been exemplary to date,” said Kenneth Bryan, Minister for Tourism and Transport. “With a high percentage of the population now vaccinated, we are keen to relax the current restrictions and move to Phase 4 of our reopening programme on Nov. 20. This will bring an important return to normality for travel and tourism on the islands in time for the holidays.”

Director of Tourism, Rosa Harris, added: “We are excited to share the many beautiful experiences of Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac – the stunning beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, wonders of nature and expansive culinary choices. Our repeat visitors and new guests who are interested in visiting our dynamic island trio, may now enjoy our world class destination and warm hospitality. We await your arrival so you may have sweet dreams in Cayman.”
