OPEN FOR BUSINESS, TRAVEL, DIVING & PLEASURE:

 

GOING TO COZUMEL:

 

Cozumel and other 'fly to' parts of Mexico remain the ONLY OR NEARLY ONLY COUNTRY where you can travel without a mandatory negative covid test to enter the country.

 

FINAL CORRECTION....(YES THEY NOW ASK FOR THE QR CODE FROM THE 2nd LINK WHEN YOU CHECK IN AT THE GATE)

 

1. It appears we need to do BOTH links supplied so far.

 

a. The immigration form HERE

 

https://www.inm.gob..../solicitud.html

 

b. The covid info/survey/etc HERE 

 

https://afac.hostingerapp.com/  Create an account, then login in fill out answers then save your work. Save the QR code in your phone as you will need it at the GATE WHEN YOU CHECK and for entering and/or departing Mexico.

 

****NOTE*****Under personal info it will NOT save if you do not list your 'second' last name. People in Mexico have 2 last names...their mother and their father's to create THEIR NEW LAST NAME. So just list your last name twice unless you do have two last names and it will allow you to save the form.

 

So I become Kamala Shadduck Shadduck

 

ON THE ISLAND:

 

Once on the island there is a 'mask mandate' when out walking, riding in taxi's, shopping etc but when on the grounds of select resorts/operators (including Casa Del Mar & Cozumel Marine World) the mask rules are left up to the individual's own comfort preferences. Massive amounts of cleaning and disinfecting are done daily, many places including the ferry to Playa do temperature checks but all in all its a HUGE SLICE OF NORMALCY and ITS SAFE!!!

 

RETURNING TO THE US OR HOME:

 

As of Jan 26th the US now requires all travelers entering the US including residents returning home to test "NEGATIVE" to enter. To facilitate this our hotel will either transport us to the testing facility with plenty of time to get the results back OR they will have the testers come to the hotel and test us there. NO diving will be lost to do the testing and RESULTS will be back timely for our return flights.

 

Note: You will have the option to take either a rapid/antigen test or a PCR test. Each test has a separate fee but the processing times are roughly the same

 

QUESTIONS:

 

Please feel free to ask questions below in this topic or email trips@singledivers.com.  Thank you!

Q:  I have followed the link https://www.inm.gob.mx/fmme/publico/en/solicitud.html and filled out the online form.  You said it was an "online survey for the country about covid and your potential exposure" but it was just an immigration form.  Did I miss something?

 

A: No the form has evolved so its the ONLY thing you have to fill out. The airlines will send the same form (supposedly) to you a few days before you travel...click their link and if its the same form you are good to go. If not please fill that one out as well. Still SUPER EASY!

I got an email from American Airlines.  Says "Travellers are required to complete a "Cuestionario de Identification de Factores de Riesgo en Viajeros" on the day of their flight.  Travelers must either print the form or print the QR code from the online form and present the Qr code or form to immigration on arrival in Mexico."

I leave at 6 am on Saturday and don't have a printer at home. You think I could send form to my phone as long as it has the QR code?

YES the QR code is fine. And they may not actually request it. Sometimes they do and sometimes they do not.
