USA: Beginning January 26, 2021, all air passengers, 2 years of age or older, traveling into the United States, including US citizens and legal permanent residents, must provide written or electronic proof of a negative NAAT (antigen) COVID test before being permitted access to boarding by all airlines operating flights into the US territory.
Canada: Beginning January 7, 2021, all passengers, 5 years of age and older and regardless of citizenship, must provide written or electronic documentation of a negative COVID-19 PCR or RT-LAMP test taken within 72-hours of the passenger’s departure on any flight heading to Canada. Failure to provide the required documentation will result in the passenger being denied access to boarding by airline officials.
We are currently working with 3rd parties accredited laboratories so that guests have access to onsite COVID-19 testing during their stay. Without having to leave the resort, we will guide guests choosing to take advantage of this service through the testing process and ensure they receive their results in time for their scheduled departure.
The Villa Group has coordinated offering discounted antigen and PCR testing at each of our resorts for visitors whose home countries require a negative testing result. Discounted pricing is estimated to be around $30.00 USD for antigen and $160.00 USD for PCR.
All testing will be conveniently administered on-property by a testing professional from a certified and approved 3rd party laboratory so you can continue to enjoy your vacation with peace of mind. Upon completion of testing, guests will receive electronic results and may obtain a printed copy at reception upon departure if needed. All tests will come with certified results, and given that a client tests negative for COVID, their results can be used as documentation for departure flights.
Upon completion of testing, guests will receive electronic results and may obtain a printed copy at reception upon departure if needed.
US regulations state that a passenger who has recently tested positive for COVID-19 may provide documentation of the positive test result along with a notice of recovery from a certified healthcare professional. The documentation must adhere to the following guidelines:
The passenger must provide documentation of a recent positive test result, taken within the last 3 months prior to their flight into the United States, in addition to a signed letter stating that the passenger has been cleared for travel, written on official letterhead that contains the name, address, and phone number of a licensed healthcare provider or public health official.
Canadian regulations do not allow recovery documentation to replace the mandatory negative COVID-19 test result documentation that is required for the boarding of international flights into Canada.
In the event that a guest tests positive for COVID-19 while staying at one of our resorts, we will give them the option to extend their reservation at a discounted rate for the duration of their quarantine or until they test negative and can prepare for their airline departure. All guests testing positive for COVID will be required to safely quarantine in their hotel room and follow all government guidelines.
If a guest tests positive and cannot provide proof of a negative test result to airlines before departure, the American, Canadian, and Mexican governments require they self-isolate and delay travel until they have fully recovered. Airlines flying into Canada and the United States are obligated by law to deny boarding to passengers not fulfilling the requirement for documentation of negative test results.
