COVID-19 Travel Policies

In order to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to gradually re-open the economy, several states and many Caribbean and European countries require all visitors to present before check in or at the border:
  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test that was taken within 48 – 72 hours of border entry and / or
  • Travel document that includes the following information: name, date and time the test was taken, the method of collection (nasal, blood, saliva), method of testing (PCR, Antigen, RT-PCR) and the negative result and
  • Documentary proof that shows clinic or laboratory is accredited and / or licensed by local authorities (ex: CLIA Certificate, COLA Certificate)
It is important to note that, due to the COVID-19 epidemiological situation, there are distinct requirements for border entry that vary between all international countries and states. Some places, for instance, require proof of negative PCR COVID-19 test results within 72 of arrival; others allow evidence of a negative molecular PCR COVID-19 testing performed within 5 days of entry. In addition, some countries might specify that the COIVD-19 test must be an RT-PCR (a variant of PCR test, one of the most sensitive techniques used for detection of the virus).
