- Puerto Rico Travel Portal: It is our understanding and experience to date, travellers who have connecting flights in Puerto Rico do not need to complete the travel portal. Having said that, the exercise only takes a few minutes and because protocols are changing frequently we do recommend doing so. Refer to their site, Travel Portal, prior to travelling.
- Anyone older than 2 years of age who arrives in Puerto Rico from a flight from any State or territory of the United States of America or from any international destination must provide evidence of a completed vaccination cycle or instead, a negative molecular or antigen test result to detect COVID-19 carried out within the period maximum of 2 days before arrival on the Island or within the 48-hours period after arrival in Puerto Rico. In case of being a traveler from an international destination, you must provide a negative molecular or antigen test result to detect COVID-19 carried out a maximum of one (1) day before boarding the plane bound for Puerto Rico.
