Entry Requirement in The Caribbean During COVID-19

0

Most Caribbean islands have reopened to international tourism, with protocols in place to protect visitors and residents from Covid-19.

The document is intended to give overview about the situation in countries of the Caribbean that are open or closed. We recommend always double check updated information in your local embassy as entry requirements may depends on country of departure, citizenship and may vary on a daily basis.

A country with an open status can be with restrictions (travel bubble from the Caricom, negative PCR tests, quarantine required etc.).

I can be tempting to head towards an open country and anchor, however we recommend contacting the authorities before as they try to adjust and adapt regulation to sea borders laters than land and flight regulation. Make sure you always have written approval from the authorities from your departure country and return in case of mechanical failure.
