Arriving travelers can access the Travel Declaration Form at travelsafe.pr.gov or viajaseguro.pr.gov.
Those visiting Puerto Rico should reference local measures developed by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC) to keep travelers and residents safe, such as social distancing and high standards of cleanliness. Masks are required indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Those unvaccinated or between the ages of 2 and 11 must also wear masks in public areas when unable to social distance.
As of February 2, 2022, vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to present a negative test. Unvaccinated travelers entering on domestic flights will still be required to show negative test results from the last two days or take one within 48 hours of arrival and must quarantine while awaiting results. Once they have a negative test, they can stop quarantining immediately. If a traveler is unvaccinated and does not get tested within the 48-hour window, they are required to quarantine for 7 days and be subject to applicable sanctions.
Starting February 1, 2022, those between 5 and 11 years old will be subject to the same guidelines as adults, requiring proof of vaccination or negative test results taken within 48 hours prior to the event upon entry. Children under 5 years of age will not be allowed to attend large-scale events, even with negative results, except when permitted by the Department of Health.
Beginning February 2, 2022, all, venues for mass events will limit capacity to 50% but will no longer be required to stay under 250 attendees.
