Coronavirus Latest News

Dear Caribbean Tours Partners

Cuba and Dominican Republic are open to the world with hygienic measures in place that guarantee the safety of customers. Nevertheless, there still are huge challenges before the travel restrictions are more relaxed and both countries will again be able to reveal all the special qualities that they have to offer the world.

Our hope now lies in the effectiveness of the vaccinations and the withdrawal of the protective measures so that guests can be received in both countries again. At Caribbean Tours we are well prepared for this moment with great offers for our round trips and many new ideas for groups and MICE events.;

We have to be patient for a while, but we are already looking forward to the new season from November 1st onwards. As usual, our sales team is available for detailed information and offers at sales@caribbeantours.ch.

¡Bienvenidos al Caribe!

Cuba returned to the travel world map since November 15th. Round trips are now possible without any problems, both as individual and family trips or in a group. The 86.5% of Cubans, including infants over the age of 2, have been immunized with the country’s own developed vaccines. Besides, just over two million Cubans already have their booster dose against COVID19. The production and transfer of vaccines to the provinces are expedited due to the danger of “Omicron”, and health authorities ensure that by the end of January the entire population must have their new dose.

Nevertheless, taking into account the increase that has occurred in international travel since November 15, as well as the high power of dissemination of variant “Omicron”, which has the capacity to double the number of cases in just two or three days, Cuban health authorities have been decided to modify the international sanitary control measures and adopt new ones, which are effective as of January 5.

New travel requirements:

For all travelers, it will be mandatory to present:

– A complete vaccination a complete vaccination certificate. The only exception to this measure are children 12 years of age or younger, or a person who has a certified medical condition that prevents the vaccination.

– The negative result of a PCR test, carried out at most 72 hours before the trip.

Random surveillance will be increased, starting with the performance of PCR test at the border, for travelers from high-risk countries.

Travel requirements that remain the same:

Travelers from South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Malawi and Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), in addition to the above requirements, must meet the following requirements:

– PCR test will be taken upon arrival at the airport.

– Mandatory quarantine will be required for eight days in a hotel designed for this purpose. The traveler will pay both accommodation and travel costs.

– An additional PCR test will be taken on the seventh day, and if negative, they will be discharge from quarantine on the eighth day.

The mask is mandatory throughout the country.

Additional information:

Temperature control will be carried out to rule out that there are possible infected.
