panama airport covid rules

Mexico’s standard entry requirements apply in addition to the requirements listed below.

COVID Test Required To Take Our Tour

Travelers are not required to show a covid test when entering Mexico. However, Mexico Relocation Tours wants to keep you and ourselves safe. Therefore we require a negative COVID test no later than 3 days before the tour to take a Mexico Relocation Tour.

You should also check with your airline to see if they have any additional COVID restrictions.

Masks

Masks are required throughout Mexico at places like our private vans, your private tour guide’s car, restaurants, hotels, taxis, rideshares, grocery stores, and shopping malls. All these places may also require you to take your temperature and have you step in a sanitizing tub before entering. Some places may give you sanitizing gel as part of their health protocol. Please do your part, and comply with wearing a mask as well as the establishment’s rules before entering. Also, some open parks may require the use of a mask- check public signs for details.

COVID Test IS Required to Fly to the United States

FROM THE CDC WEBSITE Starting November 8, non-U.S. citizens who are not immigrants to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status to fly to the United States. There will be very limited exceptions to this vaccination requirement for certain non-U.S. citizens who are not immigrants, including children under the age of 18.

Fully vaccinated air passengers, regardless of citizenship, will continue to be required to show a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test taken no more than three days before they board their flight to the United States. For passengers who are not fully vaccinated, the rules will tighten to require a test taken no more than one day before departing to the United States.

All air passengers to the United States will also be required to provide basic contact information to airlines before boarding flights to the United States. This will allow airlines to better coordinate with public health agencies to share information when needed to keep the public safe and informed, and strengthen their ability to rapidly identify and contact people in the U.S. who may have been exposed to a communicable disease, such as COVID-19.
