The borders of the Cayman Islands are in a phased reopening process, which will expand within the next couple of months. This means that the airport is open but travel must be approved by the Cayman Islands Government & all visitors must participate in a mandatory 10 - 14 day quarantine.

Welcome Back

The Cayman Islands enters Phase 4 of the bordering reopening plan on November 20, 2021. During this phase, fully vaccinated travellers (adults and children) can enter without quarantine, if they are traveling from a country with vaccination rates that are 60% or higher for the first dose of the vaccine and where those travellers spent at least 14 days prior to the date of travel. These countries include the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

  • If you are traveling from a country with a vaccination rate lower than 60% for the first dose of the vaccine, quarantine is required for 10 days.
  • Unvaccinated visitors are not able to travel to the Cayman Islands at this time, unless that visitor has a close tie to the Cayman Islands. A close tie is considered anyone who can demonstrate that they own a business or property in the Cayman Islands or has a close family tie. A family tie is anyone that is the spouse, civil partner, sibling, parent, step-parent, grandparent, grandchild, child or stepchild of a Caymanian or Resident.
  • If you are an unvaccinated Caymanian or Returning Resident, you are required to quarantine for 14 days.

For more information about vaccine requirements, quarantine, etc., please visit the official Cayman Islands Government website.

Note: We look forward to potentially welcoming unvaccinated children travelling with vaccinated adults in in Phase 5. However, the start date of Phase 5 has not yet been determined by the Cayman Islands Government.

Travel Requirements

Multiple Sclerosis

Although David Lyons was able to successfully fight Multiple Sclerosis through a strict regimen of diet and exercise, he wanted to ensure he was doing everything he could to stay fit. Multiple Sclerosis can be managed with treatment, but there is currently no cure for the disease. For that reason, David came to DVC Stem years ago to use the regenerative and anti-inflammatory attributes of stem cells to aid in his fight for fitness.

The positive results he experienced enabled David to stay strong in the gym, now into his 60s, and that is why he continues to support our clinic to this day.
