Safe to Travel

  • 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?

    No. The CDC order requiring persons to show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States, is rescinded, effective on June 12, 2022, at 12:01AM ET.  This means that starting at 12:01AM ET on June 12, 2022, air passengers will not need to get tested and show a negative COVID-19 test result, nor show documentation of recovery from COVID-19, prior to boarding a flight to the United States, regardless of vaccination status or citizenship.  Of note, CDC’s Order requiring proof of vaccination for noncitizen nonimmigrants to travel to the United States is still in effect.  Read more.

    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?

Regardless of which state you are traveling to, the CDC recommends that even if you test negative, you should self-quarantine for 7 days after travel.
