Covid-19 Information for Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico (Spanish Virgin Islands Charters)
Please be aware of upcoming changes to local measures:
- Beginning August 16th, vaccinations will be required for both employees and guests of all hotels, paradores, guesthouses, and short-term rentals across the Island. Those not vaccinated must present a negative PCR or antigen test taken within 72 hours of the beginning of their visit. If staying longer than one week, they must continue to present negative tests on a weekly basis. Those not vaccinated due to medical or religious reasons must provide proper documentation confirming this and are still required to present negative tests on a weekly basis.
- Beginning August 23rd, proof of vaccination is required for all patrons and employees of restaurants, food courts, bars, chinchorros, or any indoor location where food and beverages are prepared and served. Those not vaccinated will be required to provide a negative PCR or antigen test upon entry. Children under the age of 11 are required to keep masks on at all times while in the establishment, except for when eating or drinking.
Mask usage is a federal law on airplanes and in airports. Those entering any of the Island’s three open airports, whether on commercial or private aircraft, are required to fill out a Travel Declaration Form on the Puerto Rico Health Department’s online portal which produces a QR code required to proceed. Both international/not vaccinated travelers must also upload a negative PCR molecular or antigen COVID-19 test result to the portal. Fully vaccinated travelers entering on domestic flights are permitted to upload their vaccination cards instead of a negative test. Given federal mandates, the requirement will remain in place for travelers on international flights. All passengers will also be required to present their ID to ensure alignment with the information entered within the Travel Declaration Form.
Masks are required in all indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status, including children ages 2-11.
Local businesses have the ability to set rules and limitations that exceed local government requirements. Please be mindful and respect local business mask requirements and other limitations.
Masks are required in all indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status. Those unvaccinated or between the ages of 2 and 11 must wear masks in all public areas when unable to social distance. Travelers should remember that mask usage is a federal law on airplanes and in airports.
