Cayman Islands Travel Insurance Requirements

Last updated: 03/07/2024

Cayman Islands Travel Insurance Requirements

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, all travelers visiting the Cayman Islands were required to receive permission to enter the country after applying through the Cayman Islands travel portal. This included the traveler showing proof of a travel insurance policy with coverage for Covid-19 medical expenses, or attesting that they have the means to pay for any medical costs incurred.

However, there are no longer travel restrictions for anyone traveling to the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands travel portal is no longer active, and travel insurance for Covid-19 is no longer required.

Squaremouth’s Cayman Islands Travel Insurance Recommendations

Although the Cayman Islands no longer requires travel insurance, Squaremouth still recommends at least $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage for international travelers. Squaremouth also recommends travelers search for a travel insurance policy with at least $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage. Medical Evacuation can cover the cost of an evacuation to the nearest hospital in the event of an emergency.

In addition to these benefits, Squaremouth recommends a comprehensive travel insurance policy that includes other benefits for the most common travel insurance concerns. Primarily, this includes Trip Cancellation coverage and coverage for delays and luggage, among other benefits.

For travelers who are concerned about losing their prepaid trip expenses if they need to cancel their trip to the Cayman Islands, Squaremouth recommends insuring these costs through the Trip Cancellation benefit. This benefit can reimburse 100% of a traveler’s prepaid and non-refundable trip costs if they need to cancel for a covered reason, such as not being able to travel because they are sick with Covid-19 or another illness.
