Caribbean Destinations Loosen Entry Requirements for Covid


More destinations are removing or loosening their Covid requirements! While you will still have to test negative 1 day before coming home, these locations are at least making it a little easier to get to. Several resorts in the region have even made on-site testing available, making it very easy to test before you come back to the U.S.


Aruba

Effective March 19th, 2022, all travelers are no longer required to present a COVID-19 negative test result or proof of vaccination. All travelers are still required to complete Aruba’s Embarkation/Disembarkation Card before arrival, which is the country’s digitized customs and immigration process. Aruba Visitors Insurance is still required for all visitors. The online ED Card process. All visitors (including children) spending more than 24 hours in Aruba are required to complete the online ED Card immigration form to be permitted entry

Dominican Republic

Most travelers (for example, from United States, Canada, Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Panama, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Puerto Rico, etc.) do not need to present a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival to enter the Dominican Republic. Airports and other ports of entry will perform a quick, aleatory test to a percentage of passengers, and all those who present symptoms, upon arrival. All foreign and Dominican passengers entering or leaving Dominican Republic on commercial flights must complete the free electronic entry and exit form, which combines the Traveler’s Health Affidavit, Customs Declaration and International Embarkation/Disembarkation forms.


Mexico

Mexico never did require testing for entry throughout this who pandemic. To this day, there are no entry restrictions in Mexico and no obligation to carry a COVID test or to do quarantine. However, it is mandatory to register on the Mexico Vuela Seguro Platform before boarding and to show the QR code at the arrival airport.


Costa Rica

Starting April 1, the temporary immigration measures for entering Costa Rica – put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic – are repealed. This eliminates the requirement to complete the epidemiological form known as the Health Pass and the requirement of medical insurance for unvaccinated foreigners. All commercial establishments, activities, and events can operate at 100% capacity.


Jamaica

Travel to Jamaica has become easier with the relaxation of COVID-19 travel restrictions. Effective March 1, 2022, travelers no longer need to obtain a Travel Authorization to travel to the island. In addition, mandatory quarantine order assignments have also been removed for all arriving passengers and persons are free to move within the island while maintaining social distance and mask wearing protocols in public spaces. However, travelers 12 years and older will still need to provide a negative COVID-19 test (Antigen or PCR) conducted within 3 days of the date of travel at check-in for their flight.
