In the Cayman Islands eligibility for travel, quarantine requirements and other considerations vary depending on the vaccination status of individuals. This section provides clarification on vaccination status and a list of vaccines approved by the Chief Medical Officer.
A person is considered fully vaccinated if they have had a full course of vaccination against COVID-19 with an approved vaccine at least 14 days before arrival to the Cayman Islands (or prior to entering quarantine if you are an occupant of the residence where a traveller will quarantine).
The following vaccines have been approved by the Chief Medical Officer:
- Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (Johnson & Johnson) (single dose)

If a person produces a false vaccination document they will be liable, on conviction, to a fine of $10,000 and to imprisonment for two years.
