At Sunset World we have COVID-19 screening tests for guests traveling to countries that require them
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the United States expanded the requirement for a negative COVID-19 test to all international air passengers entering the United States, going into effect on January 26, 2021. The United States joins other countries such as Canada, U.K., Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Colombia with such requirement.
Beginning January 22, Sunset World Resorts will offer both the antigen test and PCR NAAT test onsite by a certified laboratory, guaranteeing valid test results. Please contact the concierge at your resort upon arrival to schedule a departure testing. Results will be available same day and within 48 hours for each test, respectively. Our concierge team is available to help guests who may require COVID-19 tests before January 22 coordinate to off-property testing.
According to the CDC, air passengers entering the United States will be required to present documentation of a negative COVID-19 viral test (called a Qualifying Test) conducted within 3 days before their flight to the United States departs. Documentation should be for a viral test (NAAT or antigen) as approved or authorized by the relevant national authority or proof of recovery.
Test results must state: Negative, SARS-CoV2 RNA Not Detected, SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Not Detected, or COVID-19 Not Detected. “Invalid” results will not be accepted. Documentation may be paper or electronic copy and must include the name and contact information for the laboratory or healthcare personnel who performed the test. Test results may be required to be shown again upon landing.
Alternatively, passengers may provide documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 with test results conducted during the 3 months preceding the flight’s departure from a foreign country. Test results must state: Positive, SARS-CoV2 RNA Detected, SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Detected, or COVID-19 Detected. “Invalid” results will not be accepted. Additionally, a letter from a licensed health professional stating that the passenger has been cleared for travel (called Documentation of Recovery) is required.
Finally, all airline passengers will be required to present a simple CDC attestation form to the airline for collection prior to boarding. The CDC attestation form can be found here for reference:
