Cayman Islands relaxes entry rules

The Cayman Islands government has dropped pre-departure Covid test requirement for vaccinated arrivals.

From July 1, fully jabbed travellers arriving in the Cayman Islands no longer need to take a Covid test and can enter by completing a travel declaration form and showing proof of vaccination.

Additionally, the destination has lifted its face covering mandate so travellers no longer need to wear masks in public spaces.

Unvaccinated travellers are still required to quarantine for seven days upon arrival.

Minister for tourism and transport Kenneth Bryan said: “These latest developments signal the exciting transition into the next phase of our strategic reopening plan.

“We are delighted to make the journey to Cayman a bit smoother for our global guests and we look forward to showcasing our tourism community to all who come ashore.”

Rosa Harris, director of tourism for the Cayman Islands, said: “For more than two years we have kept a close eye on the global travel landscape and have adapted our protocols accordingly.

“We are excited that this new phase is upon us as we are eager to welcome our international friends back to the Cayman Islands without pre-arrival testing.”
