Great news for US student groups! As of Monday May 24, 2021, incoming continental US travelers are no longer required to show proof of a negative PRC Covid test upon entering San Juan if they are fully vaccinated. The Governor of Puerto Rico issued a new executive order On May 20th, 2021.
The Governor also lifted the yearlong curfew that was in place since March 2020. Before traveling to the US Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, travelers must fill out a Travel Declaration Form and present a QR code to exit the airport. Fully vaccinated travelers must upload their FDA-approved vaccination record card on the declaration form.
Those who are not fully vaccinated are required to show proof of a negative PCR Covid test within 72 hours of arrival. This is being strictly enforced. Failure to comply will result in a $300 fine. All travelers are still required to wear masks indoors and in all public spaces. Beaches are fully open. Businesses and restaurants are operating at 50% capacity.
We at Vamonos are excited to welcome student groups to our now fully open friendly island. We urge tour operators to consider offering Puerto Rico to new or previously booked groups not able to travel in 2021 or 2022 to other Latin American or European destinations.
As of May 1st, 2021, Vamonos is operating student groups and expects hundreds of travelers in June 2021. For more information and travel guidelines, visit Puerto Rico’s Department of Health Travel Safe page.
