FULLY 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. As of Jan 15 Mexico removed the requirement to fill out the health survey/questionaire online. YAY!!!! Now you REALLY ARE HEADING ON VACATION!!!  :wakawaka:

 

You will create an account and then fill out an online survey (HERE) for the country about covid and your potential exposure but its very simple and straightforward and easy to do.  You can ALSO fill out your TOURIST CARD ONLINE vs filling it out in line waiting to clear customs.   https://www.vuelaseguro.com

 

WHILE IN COZUMEL:

 

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!!! NOTE: No guest has been denied traveling back to the US, Canada or Europe for getting covid and since you do not need to test negative before entering this is a HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT!

 

RETURNING TO the US:

 

Dec 6, 2021 Update:

The US govt shortened the timeframe for testing to return to the US from 72 hrs to 24 hrs. The hotel has already advised me that they have adjusted the testing parameters to meet the needs of its guests in conjunction with the local doctors etc. Testing will be done the day before you travel with results provided later that evening or early the day of travel so you can meet the 24 hr timelines. YAY!!!

 

April 2021 Update:  To speed up the process you NOW complete an online test scheduling request at least 2 days prior to the day you want to be tested. If you are flying home on Saturday we suggest you test on Thursday afternoon. Testing at our hotel is done at 3:30pm. To set up your test you can click on a QR code at the hotel or go to THIS WEBSITE (link to be posted shortly) and request your testing data. Its quite simple and efficient.

 

Jan 26, 2021 Update: the US began requiring all travelers entering the US including residents returning home, to test "NEGATIVE" to enter. To facilitate OUR GROUP 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 The default test is a rapid test.

 

  • PCR test requires ADVANCE SET UP of 1 week. It will be 2 days prior to departure and costs $75 US  BRING YOUR PASSPORT as its needed.
  • Antigen test requires ADVANCE SET UP  of at least 1 day. The testing is at 3pm daily at the hotel IF guests are departing the next day. Use THIS Link to set up your appt for your departure. Test costs $30 cash to be given to the doctor when you go for your test. BRING YOUR PASSPORT as its needed

Is there a time frame in which this has to be filled out?  Not sure if it is similar to the health surveys that need to be filled out within a day or two of travel, and we get an approval email that we print out, or is it simply general information that can be done once we have flight info.  Thank you.  Ed

Yes a day or two before travel. You can try a bit earlier since they do not require any test to be uploaded.

YAY!!! Mexico has done away with this requirement as of Jan 15, 2022. YAY!!! I arrived Jan 19 and only filled out the customs and immigration form on the plane like in the old days!!! :wakawaka:

Thank you for the update and clarification.  I pulled it up, and one area said I had to wait until 12 hours prior to my flight, and another area said I had to fill it out when I landed.  Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.

Where did you see that? Please send me a link? I suspect its old info and they are purging everything because absolutely NO ONE asked at the airport in the FL nor in TX before the international leg. They did not ask on the plane and they did not ask when we landed. ITS GONE!!! ;wakawaka:
