Caribbean Countries — Come In We’re Open

Over the past three months, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced countries into a lockdown mode, but today, more and more countries are now reopening to accommodate travelers for summer vacation.

A handful of countries are letting in everyone while others are inviting only a select few.

Some Caribbean countries are now welcoming travelers while others are tentative.

The list includes the following:


the U.S. Virgin Islands (which includes St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John),

Puerto Rico

St. Lucia visitors must present a negative Covid-19 test within 48 hours of boarding a flight.

Jamaica is opening to all international travelers on June 15.

The Bahamas welcomes yachts and private flights; everyone else can join from July 1.

Aruba will also open its borders to residents of Canada, Europe, and other Caribbean islands (excluding the Dominican Republic and Haiti) on July 1; Americans are welcome as of July 10.

Travelers to Turks and Caicos will need to wait for a little longer; it opens July 22.

Grenada has set June 30 as a “possible date for reopening.”

The French isle of Saint Martin has indicated visitors could come as early as July 1.

Note — Nearly all countries have special requirements to enter.
