IMPORTANT: New Travel Protocols

August 11 – The State of Alaska’s new travel protocols go into effect today. The major change is that free testing at the airport is only available for Alaska residents. Non-residents need to arrive with proof of a negative test taken within 72 hours, or proof of a test taken within 72 hours with results pending, or pay $250 to get tested at the airport. If you have proof of a negative result, you still need to follow strict social distancing requirements. If you are waiting for results you need to self-quarantine until your result is returned, and then follow strict social distancing for 14 days or until a second negative test is taken and received at 7-14 days after arrival.

The new State of Alaska Travel Portal is now live at https://www.alaska.covidsecureapp.com/. All travelers arriving in Alaska – residents and nonresidents – are required to complete a Travel Declaration Form and a Self-Isolation Plan using the portal.
