Dear Clients and Friends
As we continue to monitor global developments related to COVID-19, please see new requirements from the CDC for international travel to the United States and Canada:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has expanded the requirement for a negative COVID-19 test to all air passengers 2 years or older, entering the United States which will go into effect on January 26th, 2021. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test must be conducted within 72 hours prior to your departure flight. Options for this test include a PCR or Antigen test, valid with an official medical certificate. We recommend the Antigen test which can be taken simply, and is being widely offered in many locations including resorts, with same day results or results within 24 hours sent via email. The PCR testing in most locations is available directly at the local medical facility if not available at your resort. Costs vary by resort / destination. Please check directly with your resort for additional information.
As of January 7, 2021, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began its requirement of a negative COVID-19 test to all air passengers 5 years or older, entering Canada. The PCR testing is mandatory for Canada, valid with an official medical certificate with results within 24 hours sent via email. Testing must be conducted within 72 hours prior to your departure flight. Costs vary by resort / destination. Please check directly with your resort for additional information.
Proof of a negative COVID-19 test is required by all airlines for travel to the United States or Canada. If you do not show proof of a negative COVID-19 test, you will be denied boarding. For those that previously tested positive, they must show documentation of recovery in order to travel. If you have already received the vaccine, you must still provide a negative COVID-19 test result.
