    Why not get a free test in the US before you go?

    Hi dannori,

    We all, at least from those of us from the US and Canada, now need negative PCR tests both ways. I think Susan was speaking to the PCR tests required for us to go back North, and her report is good news.

    Thanks Susan.

    This is not quite the requirement; it is 72h before you board your flight, and an antigen test is acceptable.
    From https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...travelers.html

    When do I need to get a test to travel to the US? And what kind of test do I need?


    Get tested no more than 3 days before your flight to the US departs. Make sure to be tested with a viral test (NAAT or antigen test) to determine if you are currently infected with COVID-19. Also make sure that you receive your results before your flight departs and have documentation of your results to show the airline.

    I think it is important to note that what Michaeto posted is indeed the requirement for testing in order to fly to Bonaire, not what is necessary to fly back to the States. A PCR test is required that has been taken no more than 72 hours prior to your arrival on Bonaire.

    However, the requirements for flying back to the United States are different.

    Yes, sorry, I was reading too much into his post.

    Delta Air Lines will resume flights from Atlanta to Bonaire on February 6. Once a week on Saturdays.

    On February 13, American Airlines will follow on Wednesdays and Saturdays from Miami. On the same day, United Airlines will start flights from Houston and Newark to Bonaire.

    All travelers to Bonaire must be able to show proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours prior to arrival on the island.
