US & Canada End Testing Requirements
(POSTED JUN. 14, 2022)

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced it is ending the testing requirement for international travelers entering the US effective June 12, 2022. A negative rapid test result will no longer be required to board your return flight to the US. Canada has also removed testing requirements for fully-vaccinated travelers arriving by air. 

This eliminates the fear of being stranded abroad due to testing positive before flying home to the US, Canada, or UK.

Delta Airlines has restarted daily nonstop service to Grand Cayman from Atlanta and New York (JFK). 

Get Ready for a Grand Reopening!
