Eastern Caribbean COVID-19 Status

Due to the increasing number of cases of COVID-19 in the Eastern Caribbean, many countries have strengthened measures to combat the further spread of the virus. We urge American Citizens to adhere to the country’s laws, regulations, and health protocols in effect.

Countries in the Eastern Caribbean have put into place travel restrictions and other health-related measures to include mandatory health screening. Many countries require advance COVID testing with valid negative test results prior to arrival, testing upon arrival and retesting after a certain number of days. Arriving travelers may also be subject to mandatory quarantine and/or monitoring which may be restricted to a government designated facility or an officially approved accommodation only.  This is especially the case if you test positive for COVID-19 upon arrival or departure and may result in delays with your planned return to the U.S.  Before you travel, make sure you have medical insurance that covers you overseas and a financial plan if you have to extend your trip.

*** Effective Sunday, June 12 at 12:01 a.m. EDT, the CDC rescinded its Order requiring all airline or other aircraft passengers to show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 to board any aircraft destined to the United States from a foreign country. Of note, CDC’s Order requiring proof of vaccination for non-U.S. citizen nonimmigrants to travel to the United States is still in effect. For more information see Requirement for Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination for Air Passengers.
