  • You are required to make a declaration of travel and vaccination status and your vaccination documentation will be checked upon arrival. Click here to apply to travel to Cayman and also make your declaration.
  • You must be a securely verified vaccinated traveller aged 12 and over. At this time unvaccinated tourists under the age of 12 are unable to travel to the Cayman Islands. This may change before Phase 4 begins on 20 November.
  • Pre-arrival PCR testing is required for all
  • There is no arrival PCR testing
  • Masks must be worn and social distancing used in public places (supermarkets, bars, restaurants, schools, healthcare facilities, churches, pharmacies, etc).

  • The number of people allowed to gather indoors is 100 and 250 for outdoor gatherings.


Vaccinated Travellers

Vaccinated persons travelling to the Cayman Islands must have a secure verifiable vaccination record. "Secure verification” means that your vaccination record has security features like a hologram or unique QR code which allows your vaccination information to be confirmed. 


When the QR code is scanned, it reveals your name, DOB and vaccination information. This is the most secure way to prove you are fully vaccinated. Paper copy vaccination records without a unique QR code cannot be scanned to confirm your vaccination status and are not accepted as securely verifiable. This includes CDC vaccination cards.


Travellers who are fully vaccinated but do not have a securely verifiable vaccination record will be required to undergo a 10-day quarantine period.
