Travelers Have Options

If you’re a visitor traveling to Alaska or a resident returning home and want to know how you can adhere to the State of Alaska Health Mandate 10 on Interstate and International Travel, check out this flow chart outlining the different options travelers can choose from.

Traveling during a pandemic comes with inherent risks and may not be simple. Travelers to Alaska should be aware that testing is available at airports, but it’s not guaranteed. It’s preferred, if at all possible, for visitors to Alaska to test in their home state, before they travel.

Due to high demand, the turnaround for test results in Alaska and at some commercial labs is currently taking longer than usual. Depending on the location and available resources, some test results may return relatively quickly or within a few days while others may take up to five days or longer.
