Great news for those who have been vaccinated and are eager to travel! Puerto Rico travel restrictions are being lifted, with the recent announcement that US travelers will no longer require a negative COVID-19 PCR test to visit the island if fully vaccinated. This order will officially go into effect on Friday, May 28, 2021.
Another one of the Puerto Rico travel restrictions being lifted is the local curfew that went into place in March 2020. This curfew was officially lifted on Monday, May 24, making it easy for tourists to enjoy more of Puerto Rico during their trip.
This information about the Puerto Rico travel restrictions was provided by DiscoverPuertoRico.com. The CEO of Discover Puerto Rico, Brad Dean, commented:
“Puerto Rico has prioritized health and safety from the onset of the pandemic, becoming the first US destination to implement an island-wide curfew, among other measures developed to safeguard residents and visitors. As restrictions loosen, we look forward to welcoming travelers seeking to responsibly explore our island, immerse themselves in unforgettable culture, unique natural wonders and delicious cuisine, while taking advantage of the ease of travel that comes with Puerto Rico being a US territory, including no need for a passport for US citizens.”
Those who are not fully vaccinated or who are arriving from outside of the United States will still be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test from the last 72 hours.
