Kayak presents a global map to indicate which countries have entry restrictions, including all of the Caribbean islands. Categories include:
Completely closed: Only citizens, residents returning home, or people in other special circumstances may enter the country.

Partially open: Entrance may depend on the traveler’s citizenship, point of origin, or other specific regulations.

Reopening soon: The country has announced a specific date for reopening, but certain entry requirements may still apply.

No restrictions: The country has no formal restrictions on entry by air, but is still monitoring the situation and may have other travel policies in place like mandatory testing or quarantines upon arrival.

Destinations you can travel to now: There may be current travel advisories issued by authorities.

Check the CDC guidelines on global travel. Destinations are categorized in Levels 1-4 to indicate the level of risk (low to very high) for each country. The CDC Travel Planner shows travel restrictions for each U.S. state.

NEW! All travelers inbound to the U.S. must have digital or written proof of a negative Covid-19 test. Here are the details on this new requirement from the CDC. Travelers from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are exempt.

How to Book the Cheapest Flights


Travel News and Alerts

Can I Cancel My Flight, Cruise or Hotel?

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, most domestic and international airlines are currently offering no-fee changes with varying policies. In many cases, fare differences will apply when rebooking for future travel dates.

Should you even travel domestically? Here’s Clark’s advice: “What I’ve been recommending to anyone with travel plans outside the United States is that you just have to keep watching this. You need to make your own decision now that rebooking policies have become more favorable from most travel suppliers,” Clark says. “And that means making your own decision in terms of your health and how you feel about traveling. Traveling is about fun and getting away from it all, but if you’re going to feel a wall of worry, don’t go right now.”
