The Cayman Islands Government requires securely verifiable vaccination records for incoming travellers in order to be eligible for reduced quarantine and no quarantine after November 20. Secure verification ensures that the vaccination record has been issued by a trusted authority and minimizes the risk of fraud such as the tampering with vaccination records. A securely verified vaccine record has a unique QR code which must be presented on arrival, either electronically on a mobile device, or as a physical copy. Travellers should keep a printed copy on hand for verification on arrival.
