On April 19, the State of Alaska rolled out updates to the Alaska Safe Travels program. The Alaska Travel Portal is now the Alaska Safe Travels App and features a new, simplified Alaska Safe Travels Form, which replaces the Alaska Travel Declaration.
What’s the difference? Besides the name change, the new interface has been streamlined for ease of use and the new form asks fewer than half the questions that were on the previous Alaska Travel Declaration.
Why should you use it? Travelers can use the new Alaska Travels App to pre-register for a free COVID-19 test at one of many convenient airport testing locations, and soon, travelers will also be able to pre-register to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at select airports.
Where do you get it? The new app will use the same www.alaska.covidsecureapp.com website address as the Alaska Travel Portal, with iOS and Android apps available for download soon.
