The beautiful Caribbean nation of Grenada is officially reopening their borders for tourism on July 15, 2020.

Grenada, also known as ‘Spice Island’ from all the nutmeg and cinnamon plantations, is located just south of St. Vincent and The Grenadines, and to the north of Trinidad and Tobago. In addition to its beautiful backdrops and warm weather, Grenada is also somewhat of a safe haven from the virus. They only had 27 confirmed cases in total, all of which are now recovered.

Other Entry Rules for Grenada

Is entry into Grenada based on nationality, residency, or location for the past 14 days?

We asked local officials directly, but they have not yet answered. All the terminology says ‘travellers coming from’, which makes us believe it is based on both residency and where the traveller has physically been for the last 14 days. Any unsure traveler should confirm with border police.

Have flights resumed to Grenada?

The airport in Grenada is reopening on July 15 and flights will slowly start to resume after demand rises.
