BE IN THE KNOW BEFORE YOU GO! OCTOBER : 2021

There has been an update to the CDC’s testing requirements for international travelers. This an update for all international travelers effective 11/8/21.

We are sharing an update that just was released from the CDC. It will predominantly affect unvaccinated travelers.

• If you are unvaccinated or will not be fully vaccinated (meaning your last dose was received within 14 days of your return to the US) instead of testing at the resort up to 72 hours before departure, the US government is now requiring your test be administered within 24 hours of your departure.

• If you are vaccinated, please bring your vaccination card as proof that you are fully vaccinated, allowing you to test within 72 hours of departure. We recommend keeping this in your in-room safe with your passport during your stay for safekeeping.

• If you are travelling with a child, aged 2-17 that is unvaccinated, please click the below link and review the FAQ section for full details on requirements for children.

Please refer to the CDC link for the official update:
