Interstate and International Travel
To increase safety and slow the spread of COVID-19, the State of Alaska has updated its travel protocols for visitors and residents traveling to Alaska. In accordance with Health Advisory 2, all incoming travelers are strongly encouraged to be tested within 72 hours of their initial flight.
If test results are not provided by the time of arrival, travelers may upload proof of a test taken within 72 hours of their initial flight and self-quarantine until negative test results are uploaded to the Alaska Travel Portal. All results, whether positive or negative, should be uploaded. Further information and support will be provided to those who have tested positive.
Before arriving in Alaska, complete a voluntary Travel Declaration in the Alaska Travel Portal, upload test results and more.
Nonresidents who arrive without evidence of a molecular based SARS-CoV-2 test within 72 hours of travel may choose to test upon arrival. There is no fee for testing upon arrival.
NOTE: All travelers, even those who have uploaded negative results, should still follow strict social distancing for 5 days after arrival. A second COVID-19 test taken 5-14 days after arrival is also optional, but encouraged.
