Frequently Asked Questions
Can Americans Visit Mexico Right Now?
Yes. There are no travel restrictions on air travel between the United States and Mexico and several flights are operating daily. The US-Mexico Land Border, which was restricted to ‘essential’ crossings for almost 20 months due to COVID-19, has reopened to travelers who are vaccinated against COVID-19.
Am I Required to Get Tested for COVID-19 Before Leaving Mexico?
Yes. The USA requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test result from all air passengers over the age of 2. The test must be taken within 24 hours of your scheduled flight and shown at the airport when you check in. This is a requirement for all airline passengers, even for those who have been fully vaccinated.
For all travelers to Canada over the age of 5, you must present proof of a negative COVID-19 molecular test taken within 72 hours of the scheduled departure time of your flight to Canada.
On-site COVID-19 testing, according to government requirements, is available at Garza Blanca Puerto Vallarta. Antigen and PCR testing is available at a discounted rate. The test can be scheduled at check in on the day of your arrival. If you have had COVID within the last 3 months and recovered from it, you will only have to show documentation of recovery issued by a medical doctor.
If I tested negative before my flight, do I need to quarantine when I return to Canada?
Travelers to Canada may be exempt from the mandatory quarantine requirements subject to the discretion of the border official upon re-entry. Those requirements include being fully vaccinated and entering your vaccination and travel information using the ArriveCAN mobile app 72 hours before your arrival to Canada.
If I tested negative before my flight, do I need to quarantine when I return to the US?
The U.S. quarantine regulations in the 50 states are constantly being adapted and are subject to constant changes.
