In partnership with Mena Travel Agency, we round up entry restrictions and COVID-19 testing requirements for popular summer travel destinations around the world.  

Most Caribbean islands have reopened to international tourism and have protocols in place to protect both visitors and residents against COVID-19. Several islands have begun to adopt two-track entry regulations for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers, with all international passengers flying into the U.S. from the Caribbean (except Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands) required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of boarding the flight to the U.S. 

FastLabs provides accurate Fast PCR tests that meet international travel requirements with results in minutes. In addition, services such as rapid antigen tests, rapid antibody tests, and a complete flu panel are available at its four locations throughout Miami-Dade and Broward counties. 

Thanks to our friends at Mena Travel Agency, South Florida-based travel advisors with more than 70 years traveling the world, we have summarized the latest international COVID-19 travel restrictions for the most popular travel destinations in the Caribbean.
