Traveling to Alaska?

Effective 8/11/2020

Non-Residents

  • Test 72 hours before departure, and upload negative result into the Alaska Travel Portal (link will be available soon)
  • If tested 72 hours before departure and awaiting results, travelers will need to upload proof of test taken into the Alaska Travel Portal and quarantine at their own expense while waiting.
  • If a non-resident arrives without a pre-test, testing is available at airports for $250 per test. The traveler will be required to quarantine at their own expense while waiting on results.

Alaska Residents

  • Testing remains available at no cost to Alaska residents.
  • 14 day quarantine is still available to Alaska residents.
  • Alaska residents traveling back to home communities in rural Alaska will now have the option of testing at the airport sites, to prevent bringing the virus into our small communities.

Travelers are strongly encouraged to wear masks, practice social distancing and good hygiene, be respectful of the health of Alaskans, and to stay home if they are sick or at risk for COVID-19.

All mandates and protocols are subject to change. For the most recent information, visit the State of Alaska COVID-19 traveler information page.
