After such a trying year, many of us are more than anxious to take a vacation to the Cayman Islands. The good news is that we can now see a path forward that will allow leisure travelers to once again wiggle their toes in the sand.
The Cayman Islands vaccination roll-out started on January 7th. With the vaccine program now under way, the premier has stated, “I am hopeful that by the end of March we would have been able to immunize enough of our residents that Cayman can resume an even greater sense of normalcy, to be able to travel much more freely, to allow people into our country without so much trepidation”.
Here is what else we know about the future of leisure travel to Grand Cayman. Back on Dec. 10th, the government issued an encouraging press release about their plan to further the reopening of the borders. The key takeaways for vacationers is this:
Early January 2021: Cayman receives Covid vaccine and implements Stage 1 and 2 of the vaccination program.
March 2021: Further opening of Cayman’s borders with the following restrictions for people arriving from overseas:
1. All travelers entering the islands need to provide evidence that they have recieved an approved vaccine course against SARS-CoV-2 (as according to Public Health recommendations).
2. Negative PCR test upon arrival to Cayman.
3. Follow up repeat PCR testing on day 5, 10, and 15 following the arrival date.
While this situation is quite fluid and things could change, this is still welcomed news. We have opened our rental calendar and are accepting reservations for dates in 2021. It’s nice to have something to look forward to, so make your reservation today!
