7 Popular Caribbean Countries and their entry requirements

AFFILIATEDISCLOSUREBUTTON300X50.jpg

Caribbean Island entry requirements are different in most all countries, and a passport has a validity time in which must be checked in your passport every time you travel.  Most passports must be valid at least six months after you enter back into the United States, or your home country, from your vacation.

However, requirements for a closed-loop cruise sailing are different verses flying into a country.  If cruising from a U.S. port and returning to the same U.S. port may only require a Government issued photo ID such as a driver’s license and an original birth certificate of a person. But, remember that if for some reason you are not able to return to the U.S. via that ship and are forced to fly then you will need a valid passport.

Check with your Travel Agent or visit U.S. State Department’s website.


We also suggest that you check for any Travel Advisories issued before you leave and know where you can find a U.S. Embassy or Consulate if something should go awry and you need help.

Here are some Caribbean destinations and their requirements to travel via air to their countries. And remember, when planning your travels to these Caribbean countries the hurricane season runs from June through November.
