Our collaborators have been trained in COVID-19 protocols according to Mexican regulations and Hygiene, Sanitation and Security Protocol (HSS), to protect themselves and you.
• The circumstances around COVID-19 are continually changing. If you are planning to travel, but have not yet booked, we recommend that you consult national or local travel recommendations.
• If you have already booked your trip do not forget to contact your travel operator, hotel, insurer or travel agency as there may be last minute cancellations or changes.
• Download the Guest Assist App www.guestassist.mx that provides assistance and guidance to national and foreign tourists who visit the state of Quintana Roo in situations that affect their physical integrity or personal property.
Sunset World offers onsite testing at Sunset Royal and Hacienda Tres Ríos, making it easy to comply with the following international travel regulations.
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, effective since January 26, 2021. The United States joins other countries such as Canada, U.K., Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Colombia with such requirement.
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.
