Event: 24-hour curfew until April 6 and Delta’s April 4 flight canceled
Delta airlines has canceled the flight from Grenada to Atlanta on April 4.
U.S. Embassy Grenada continues to work with U.S. airlines to request flights out of Grenada to assist U.S. citizens. If scheduled, we’ll announce on social media platforms and via the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. At this time, there are no confirmed flights to the United States.
If you are a U.S. citizen attempting to return the United States from Grenada and have been unable to secure a commercial flight, please click here and complete the information request form. A request form must be completed for each person wishing to return to the United States. We thank you for your patience as we process this information and look for options to assist your return to the United States.
Please consider the following information:
- You should be aware that if an opportunity to return presents itself, it could be through either commercial means or a chartered flight. If a commercial flight, you should be prepared to pay immediately. You should also be aware that commercial airlines can cancel or change flight schedules at any time, and that this option may be more expensive than a normal flight, but we do not have a specific cost estimate.
- Although private medical evacuation companies are still operating and repatriating critically ill U.S. citizen patients, this is an expensive option, and should only be used or considered as a last resort.
- Once a repatriation flight(s) from Grenada to the United States of America is confirmed, we will communicate that to you with instructions on how to book the travel.
- You will be responsible for onward travel from the arrival location in the United States, which will most likely be somewhere on the east coast.
- We are committed to facilitating the return of all U.S. citizens who wish to return. Depending on your personal/financial situation and support network, sheltering in place may be an option; however, you should be prepared to do so for an undetermined amount of time.
- If you haven’t already, please go to step.state.gov and enroll yourself in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.
Travelers should be prepared for travel restrictions to be put into effect with little or no advance notice. Many travelers worldwide have reported unexpected flight cancellations and limited flight availability. If your travel has been disrupted, please contact your airline.

State of Emergency
The Grenadian Prime Minister announced a 21-day limited state of emergency that went into effect at 6 p.m. March 25, and Grenada further increased it to a 24-hour-per-day curfew lasting from 7 p.m. March 30 to 7 p.m. April 6. This means everyone in Grenada, with few exceptions, are confined to their place of residence for that period. The government enacted numerous other regulations under the state of emergency, including canceling all gatherings and social events, giving expanded authority to police and emergency responders, and closing almost all businesses except for grocery stores, which are only open for reduced hours. Emergency operations and access to medical care will continue.
