Update 27th April 2020
Our hearts and thoughts go out to you, our friends and family, and everyone, affected by the COVID-19 virus.
Please know it was a hard decision for the Government of St. Maarten to make, however, effective March 22nd 11:59 pm AST, all passengers will not be allowed to enter St. Maarten until further notice. It was with a heavy heart to watch our visitors depart our friendly island.

The governments of St. Maarten/ St. Martin are fully committed to putting safety and the well being of its people first. International cooperation is vital for ensuring the sector can effectively contribute to the containment of COVID-19. We are in close consultation with world and regional partners such as WHO and CARPHA to ensure health measures are implemented in ways that will lower the risk of spread.

At this challenging time, the country joins the international community in standing in solidarity with affected countries. We are currently in extraordinary times, and with the uncertainty of COVID-19, there is no date set when travel restrictions will be lifted.

Travel Restriction Exception
This does not apply to cargo flights
This does not apply to passengers who are specialists with evidence of traveling at the invitation of the Government of St. Maarten.
