Travel Requirements for Visitors to Alaska

Beginning February 14, 2021, Alaska visitors are not required to arrive in Alaska with a negative COVID-19 PCR test. However the State of Alaska is advising visitors to follow health protocols. This is a changing situation and you should always check current State of Alaska entry requirements and airline requirements prior to your flight to Alaska. For current State of Alaska information please check: The State of Alaska Covid-19 Traveler Information page.

Please note that any person currently positive with COVID-19 cannot travel to Alaska until they have been released from isolation, or cleared for travel, by a medical provider or  public health agency.

Consider a Covid Test or be fully vaccinated prior to arrival in Alaska

Why? While it is not required, getting a Covid-19 test prior to travel does provide a level of security and peace of mind. Please consider taking a pre-travel molecular-based test for SARS-CoV2 within 72 hours of departure. Being fully vaccinated will also give you peace of mind. However, currently, the State of Alaska recommends testing prior to arrival also for fully vaccinated persons.

Offering a safe experience is the top priority for Alaska tour companies. Tour companies will follow health advisories and protocols and may require a negative Covid test or proof of vaccination for participation in their tour.

If you cannot obtain a test for travel purposes at a local doctor’s office or testing site, you can also take a Covid-19 Home Test. Here are some FDA approved home test kits that we can recommend:
Pixel System from Labcorp
Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit
Vault Health
Picture Genetics 
The COVID Consultants

Currently, there is also the option to obtain a free Covid-19 test upon arrival in Alaska at the airport. Strict social distancing is recommended while you wait for test results, unless you are fully vaccinated (two weeks have passed since receiving your final dose of vaccine).
