The Caribbean Island of Martinique Just Lifted All Travel Rules

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 2, 2022

Another Caribbean island has officially lifted all of its travel health requirements for visitors, Caribbean Journal has confirmed. 

Thanks to this week’s decision by the French government, visitors to Martinique no longer have to proof of a negative test or vaccination in order to enter the island. 

In other words, traveling to Martinique is, “as it was in 2019,” the Martinique Tourism Authority’s Monique Macaire told Caribbean Journal.

That means you book your flight to Martinique and show up, pre-pandemic style. 

It’s a well-timed move for Martinique, following the recent expansion of flight service to the island by American Airlines.

American Airlines is now operating four weekly flights between Miami and Martinique’s Aime Cesaire International Airport, with nonstop flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
