Fly fuss-free with these tips from GMT

Air travel is tricky these days and the rules are ever-changing. We asked the experts at Global Marine Travel to give us the lowdown on the latest updates.

  • When traveling, remember to follow all airline requirements, including mask wearing, proof of vaccination, testing, or quarantine. If you do not follow your destination’s requirements, you may be denied boarding.
  • As a general rule for the EU, you will have to present negative results of a PCR test performed 72 hours before arrival or of a rapid test performed 48 hours before, regardless of vaccination status.
  • For the U.S., you must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within one calendar day of travel, or provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 within the last 90 days.
  • Destinations across the Caribbean are updating visitor protocols and curfews in response to the surging COVID-19 omicron variant.
  • Getting vaccinated is still the best way to protect yourself, slow the spread, and reduce the number of new variants. The CDC encourages you to get a vaccine booster dose if you are eligible.
  • Boarding requirements are always subject to current local administration protocols and regulations. Please remember to verify all origin/transit/destination specifics prior to departure,  as these may change at any time.
  • Verify your travel requirements 24 hour in advance via this helpful immigration regulation travel tool powered by IATA’s TimaticWeb 2: bit.ly/verifytravel-GMT
  • We recommend booking refundable/changeable marine fare tickets wherever possible.
