As of January 26, the CDC requires all international travelers – including U.S. citizens – to provide negative COVID-19 test results or evidence of COVID-19 recovery to their airline before boarding a flight to the United States.
NOTE: While an antigen test will meet the CDC requirements and allow travelers to board their flight to the U.S., the State of Alaska only accepts molecular-based SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 test results.
Nonresidents who arrive without evidence of an approved COVID-19 test will be required to test at the airport upon arrival for a fee of $250 (not reimbursable by most insurance). Alaska residents may test for free upon arrival or forgo testing by self-quarantining for 14 days.
Help spread the word by telling your foreign clients, friends, and family that Alaska’s COVID-19 travel testing requirements are stricter than the CDC’s national requirement for international travelers.
