Covid-19 Travel Requirements

Stay updated with our Covid-19 travel requirements from the link below

The latest protocol updates:

  • As of February 2nd, vaccinated travelers are no longer required to present a negative test.
  • Unvaccinated travelers entering on domestic flights are still required to show negative test results from the last two days or take one within 48 hours of arrival and must quarantine while awaiting results. Once they have a negative test, they can stop quarantining immediately.
  • If a traveler is unvaccinated and does not get tested within the 48-hour window, they are required to quarantine for 7 days and be subject to applicable sanctions.

Air Travel

Fully vaccinated travelers on domestic flights:
  • Required to upload an official vaccination card through the Travel Declaration Form portal.
  • A fully vaccinated traveler is considered to be one who has completed their series of vaccines, double or single and who has spent two weeks or more since their last dose, either with a vaccine authorized by the FDA or by the WHO. A booster is not required to enter Puerto Rico.


For non-vaccinated travelers arriving on domestic flights:
  • Unvaccinated passengers arriving on domestic flights are required to show a negative COVID-19 test ( antigen or PCR performed by an authorized health provider) result taken within 48 hours before arrival.
  • If arriving without a test, they must upload either a PCR molecular or antigen COVID-19 test performed by an authorized health provider taken on the Island within 48 hours of arrival or receive a fine. Travelers must quarantine during this period.
  • Those who do not test within the 48 hour time period are required to quarantine for 7 days.


For those who have tested positive for COVID-19 before arriving:
  • Travelers who have tested positive for COVID-19 within 90 days of their entry to Puerto Rico are permitted entry only by presenting a certified medical health certificate from a doctor stating that they have fully recovered from COVID-19, along with proof of the positive test from their previous diagnosis.


Travelers arriving on international flights:
  • Due to CDC guidelines, all travelers arriving on international flights must present a negative COVID-19 test (either antigen or PCR) taken within one day prior to departure along with proof of vaccination
  • Non-U.S. citizens or long-term residents will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before traveling by air to the United States from a foreign country.


Additional Information
  • If a symptomatic traveler (a person displaying COVID-19 related symptoms) who is not vaccinated or is traveling internationally arrives on the Island, the Puerto Rico National Guard will conduct a PCR molecular COVID-19 test at the airport. The traveler must quarantine and cover their own medical expenses/possible extended stay.
  • The quarantine is mandated until the negative PCR molecular COVID-19 test results are received and digitally uploaded to the Puerto Rico Health Department's online portal.
