The Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe have reopened to U.S. visitors.

The U.S. has been classified as safe on the basis of health indicators by the French government and appears on its "green" list of countries now open visitors to France and its overseas territories. Other territories, such as St. Barts, have already reopened to U.S. travelers.

Entry requirements to Martinique and Guadeloupe include proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival or a negative antigen test done within 48 hours of arrival on the island.

Vaccinated travelers must show proof of vaccination by Pfizer, Moderna, AstaZeneca or Johnson & Johnson vaccines and are not subject to quarantine measures.

Unvaccinated travelers aged 11 and older must present proof of a negative PCR and antigen test taken less than 72 hours prior to arrival and must quarantine for seven days.

The easiest way to travel from the U.S. to either Martinique or Guadeloupe is to fly to St. Maarten and connect with Air Caraibes. Travelers must adhere to entry regulations on St. Maarten even if they are in transit for the connecting flight. Capa Sky High Airline will launch service from the Dominican Republic to Martinique twice weekly on Mondays and Thursday beginning July 5.

American Airlines will resume weekly service from Miami to Guadeloupe in early August and to Martinique in November.
