Current COVID-19 Protocols (subject to change):

-USA residents are NOT required to complete/submit a COVID-19 test for entry into Mexico at this time, however, taking a pre-travel test is recommended by EverAfter Travel. Many travelers have had good experiences with getting COVID-19 tests at places like their local Walgreens and CVS.

-Each traveler needs to complete the immigration form either online prior to travel (https://www.inm.gob.mx/fmme/publico/en/solicitud.html)

or on the plane (paper copies are typically distributed by flight attendants). If you complete this form online, you’ll need to print the completed form and have it with you to present at the airport upon arrival in Mexico. In order to complete this form, you will need your passport details, flight information, name of the resort where you are staying, and a printer.

 

-Each traveler needs to complete a health questionnaire (https://www.vuelaseguro.com/login) within 12 hours prior to travel to Mexico and within 12 hours prior to departure from Mexico. After completing this form, you’ll need to take a screenshot of the QR code and/or print the confirmation page that displays the QR code to present at the airport.

Guests will not be required to wear face coverings at the beach, the pool, or in restaurants when actively eating and/or drinking.

Travel insurance Information

Optional travel insurance is available and EverAfter Travel encourages travelers to consider purchasing insurance as it can not only cover things like trip delays/cancellations, but it can also provide medical coverage while you're traveling just in case something happens - this is very important because your own medical insurance typically does not include international coverage.

When you are attempting to get a quote, the amount of insurance needed is typically the total value amount of your vacation package.  Also, you will need to enter F030702 as the Travel Agency ID (ACCAM#) when prompted.
