U.S citizens and LPRs who are fully vaccinated will need to present airlines with proof of vaccination and of a negative COVID-19 test three (3) days before their flight.

We suggest that you go to www.Emed.com to purchase your Covid test kit before you leave for your trip. This kit can be used and will be accepted on your return to the States. You will have to download the Navica app before your trip which is required when you are doing the test. It cannot be downloaded outside of the States. This test can be done in the comfort of your Hotel room. Please contact us for information.
If for some reason you do not purchase your test kit before leaving for your vacation we will obtain a list of venues where you can go for your PCR test the day before your fight back to the States. We will arrange a time slot for you and get you there.
