At the Cayman Islands Government last press briefing, Tourism Minister, the Honourable Moses Kirkconnell, outlined a phased reopening of the Cayman Islands borders, set to proceed on Tuesday 1 September, 2020.

Under PHASE I, all travelers wishing to travel to the Cayman Islands during the month of September, they must first complete an online application form with the CIG – Cayman Islands Government. From there, the following will be required:

  • If approved, the applicant must upload a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours of departure.
  • Approval will also require each applicant to pay a health monitoring fee.
  • Upon arrival, each traveller will be fitted with a Bio-Button, a waterproof biometric monitoring device, that adheres to your chest and logs your vital signs (temperature, heart rate, breathing pattern) and location.
  • Then, the traveller will be allowed to self-isolate at their private accommodation for a period of 5 days. If a condo, travelers will have to remain inside the property. If a private home, travelers will need to remain within the boundaries of the property.
  • At the end of the 5-day period, each traveller will be tested for COVID19. If the test comes back negative, the self-isolation period is over and you can move freely around the island. However, you will be required to continue wearing the Bio-Button for up to 9 days.

Phase II of the islands reopening is scheduled for October 1st. We hope by then there will be no self-isolation/quarantining or biometric tracking requirement once your arrive in the Cayman Islands.

CIG is working on implementation details and will provide more guidance in the coming weeks.

Cayman Villas cancellation policy

Cayman Villas is very sympathetic to the COVID19 issue and the fact that our borders are closed until 31 August, 2020. Please understand that all bookings made with Cayman Villas were confirmed in good faith before the pandemic warning was issued by the World Health Organization.

Cayman Villas has severely relaxed our cancellation policies to demonstrate our company's values, best business practices and to continue to build and nurture imperative relationships with our clients, guests and agents. We hope this will create stronger partnerships for the future and continue to build trust between us all, until the situation changes.

Airport closure

The closure of the Owen Roberts International Airport, Grand Cayman and the Charles Kirkconnell International Airport, Cayman Brac has now been extended to 11:59pm on Saturday 31 August 2020.

Guests with reservations between now and 31 August, 2020

For all guests with confirmed reservations between now and 31 August, 2020, please contact Cayman Villas via email at reservations@caymanvillas.com, to discuss whether you would like to either:

  1. Keep a 100% credit on file (no penalties will be applied) with the option to rebook your vacation within the next 12 months (starting from the departure date of your confirmed booking);

  2. Revise your vacation dates now, with no penalties, and depending on availability of the property move your dates to a suitable time in the future. If you rebook during a time when the nightly rate is lower, you will receive a refund for any overall differences in the total rental charges. Should you choose to rebook at a later date when the rate is higher, or you add additional people, or add additional nights, then please note that you will be charged the difference, and this will be outlined and explained to you in detail. If you opt to go to another property completely, then differences in the nightly rate may apply.

  3. Cancel your reservation and receive a full refund if you paid with Visa, MasterCard or Discover. If you paid with American Express, there will be a 3% Administration Fee applied to the cancellation, and the balance will be refunded. Unfortunately, American Express does not give back the Interchange/Credit Card fee that was incurred by Cayman Villas when the booking was originally made and confirmed. So we thank you in advance for your understanding regarding this expense that Cayman Villas has already incurred.

For guests with confirmed reservations from 1 September, 2020 onwards, our regular revision and cancellation polices will be adhered to for the time being. Of course we will deal with each reservation on a case by case basis, and will keep a close eye on the airport closure and other Government policies that are in place.

Please note that all the Cayman Villas Staff are doing their very best to ensure that all guests and visitors are treated professionally, reasonably and fairly, and we sincerely hope that you will keep your vacation plans in place, perhaps just for a later date, as we really are looking forward to welcoming you to our beautiful islands very soon!
