Cayman Islands Set To Welcome Back Canadians

The Cayman Islands are gearing up to welcome Canadians back this winter as both Air Canada and WestJet have announced that they’ll be re-introducing their service to the Caribbean destination.

Air Canada Rouge begins non-stop service as of Dec. 4, 2021, while WestJet will return on Dec. 16.

Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman began welcoming fully vaccinated international leisure guests without quarantine as of Nov. 20, 2021.

In March 2020, the Cayman Islands government quickly closed its borders to international air and sea arrivals, resulting in the effective mitigation of COVID-19 on the country’s pristine shores.

The country emerged from the pandemic as an example of safeguarding public health and preserved the picturesque locale, exceptional accommodations and restaurants and special marine and cultural for all to enjoy.

Working closely with health authorities, and the public and private sector, the Cayman Islands introduced a multi-phase plan to carefully and safely re-open the islands. Now in Phase 4 of its five-part plan, the luxury destination is well positioned to ensure a safe return to tourism and offer its unique brand of polished experiences to discriminating travellers seeking peace of mind.

Public Health officials will continue to monitor the prevalence rate and spread of COVID-19. Transition between phases will be determined by a myriad of factors. At all phases, all inbound travellers are required to make a declaration of travel and vaccination status on the Travel Cayman Portal, and present the declaration certificate and vaccination documents along with proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test upon arrival.
