Maintaining public health and safety in the Cayman Islands is a top priority for government.
As of 1st October, 2020 the Cayman Islands will begin a phased reopening of borders and entry is limited in Phase One to select categories of travellers arriving by air. Our seaports will remain closed to cruise ships until 31st December, 2020.
Keeping the spread of the COVID-19 virus to a minimum on the Cayman Islands is vital and several layers of protection have been implemented to minimise risks. A multi-agency public sector team has developed a safe and effective quarantine process that is reinforced by:
- personal responsibility and a commitment to follow the guidelines,
- PCR testing,
- monitoring through geofencing technology,
- random checks and penalties for non-compliance.
Although approval to leave the Cayman Island is not required, Government continues to caution that outbound travel should be limited to essential or medical needs only. Until normal commercial air service resumes, persons who leave the Cayman Islands intending to return are likely to spend longer than they anticipated overseas.
