Local Guidelines

General

Although nationwide restrictions are in place, additional localized safety measures are decided by state authorities. Travelers may require a travel health card application for inter-island travel, where a negative RT-PCR test, which is no more than 5 days old, should be uploaded. Vaccinated travelers can alternatively upload proof of vaccination. More relaxed or restrictive guidance may be in effect depending on the region you are visiting.
