The Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico has is now offering PCR molecular COVID-19 tests for all passengers within the airport.
Done in partnership with CMT Group, this will comply with island entry requirements, as well as provide easy access to testing for those leaving the destination. While Puerto Rico is exempt from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) negative COVID-19 test requirement for re-entry into the U.S., travelers who still wish to get tested, will have the ability to do so without having to leave the airport.
Beyond facilitating testing, this offering will also allow for early detection of positive cases and serve as a preventative measure, furthering the Island’s commitment to the safety of visitors and residents, said Discover Puerto Rico.
Here’s what travelers need to know:
PCR molecular testing for all travelers coming in or going out of the Island will be available for $110 and will be guaranteed results electronically within 24 to 48 hours. Testing will be conducted from 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week in Terminal A, Terminal B and Terminal C at the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport.
Those who wish to have a test done at the airport must fill out the form available here and head out to any of the testing areas located throughout the facility. Passengers can pre-register via web or upon arrival or departure at the airport, from where they will scan a code located at the entrance of the test center using their cell phone camera. This code will take them to an online registration that they must complete with all of their information. They will also be able to fill out the questionnaire required by the CDC there. Upon completing the registration, the platform will assign them a unique number, through which it will identify their record and eventual receipt of results. Passengers will present this code to the center staff and they will proceed to carry out the molecular test and receive results digitally. The only document you will need is a government issued photo ID.
