Travel Requirements For the Caribbean, Mexico, & Central America


Traveling may look a little different than it used to. So I wanted to create a page where you can find all of the New Travel Requirements that are in place for the different destinations below.

The destinations are constantly updating their requirements so I thought it would be best to make a list of the destinations and put the trusted link (with the correct information) next to the destination.


*These destinations are a U.S. Territory therefore the new International travel guidelines as of January 26th, 2021 do NOT apply. These destinations include: San Juan Puerto Rico, The U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Thomas, St. John, & St. Croix), and Hawaii is also NOT considered an international territory (that question has came up too).

Flight Delays & Cancellations

  • When planning a trip, passengers should keep in mind that airlines do not guarantee their schedules. While airlines want to get passengers to their destinations on time, there are many things that can – and sometimes do – make it difficult for flights to arrive on time. Some problems, like bad weather, air traffic delays, and mechanical issues, are hard to predict and often beyond the airlines’ control.
  • In the United States, airlines are not required to compensate passengers when flights are delayed or cancelled. Compensation is required by U.S. law only when certain passengers are “bumped” from a flight that is oversold.
  • The Department’s rules regarding flight delays and cancellations apply only to flights that operate to, from, or within the United States. However, passengers flying between or within foreign countries may be protected from flight delays and cancellations by the laws of another nation.

Flight Cancellations

  • If your flight is cancelled, most airlines will rebook you for free on their next flight to your destination as long as the flight has available seats.
  • If your flight is cancelled and you choose to cancel your trip as a result, you are entitled to a refund for the unused transportation – even for non-refundable tickets. You are also entitled to a refund for any bag fee that you paid, and any extras you may have purchased, such as a seat assignment.
  • If the airline offers you a voucher for future travel instead of a refund, you should ask the airline about any restrictions that may apply, such as blackout and expiration dates, advanced booking requirements, and limits on number of seats.
