Please note, to re-enter the US after visiting an international destination, you will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID test performed one day prior to re-entry. This test is generally performed onsite if you are going to an all inclusive resort.
Are masks required? Masks are still required in all airports, and on all airplanes. Masks may be required in common areas and on public transportation in your destination. Be sure to review your resort/destination requirements.
What happens if I test positive while in destination? You will be required to quarantine for 5 days, and then provide a proof of recovery document from a dr. We recommend a good travel insurance policy in case you do need medical care or quarantine due to a positive test. The quarantine time is currently 5 days. You may check with your resort for their policies and procedures for quarantine.
