    Default United via Houston

    Hi all - we are looking forward to flying to beautiful Bonaire for the 15th
    + time. As United started return flights this week, I would be curious to know how the 8 day testing rule applies to those that travel via Houston Saturday (pm arrival) - Sunday (am departure)? Do they still require to test day 5? Or can you wait until day before departure? Would also love to hear feedback and experience in getting tested before departure and how was the Bonaire arrival with additional paperwork, etc?
    Thanks in advance!!

    There is no more Day 5 test required for the US, since we are now High Risk instead of Very High Risk.

    Yes, that test is still needed, within 72 hours of your departure. We have used the one behind Island Car Rental, and went the day before our departure. E-mail them at info@covidtestbonaire.com to schedule your appointment. Cost is $40 per person, and I suggest scheduling at least 7 - 10 days before you need it so you are ahead of the people who are only spending a week on Bonaire to request a test. Testing is done as a drive-through and you can do several people in the vehicle at one time. Provide the names and dates of birth of each person to be tested when you e-mail them to request a date and time, and bring your passports when you go. You will also need your vaccination proof when you get back to the States. Best wishes, Mark

    As another option to what Bonaire offers, If flying United Airlines from BON back to US - they have partnered with BinaxNow and emed.
    Refer to United.com for details as mentioned below.
    Travelers originating in the U.S. and taking an international roundtrip flight can order a two-pack of at-home, virtually guided COVID-19 antigen tests to take with them for their return flight back to the U.S. This option is specifically for your return flight to the U.S. and is not valid for travel to and from China.
    • These kits must be ordered and delivered to a U.S. residence
    • The test is authorized for use by persons age four and up
    • Before leaving the U.S., please be sure you have the test kits and download the Abbott NAVICA app
    • Visit the Optum Store to order a two-pack. The site will have additional information and technology requirements for your virtually guided test

    The antigen test to return is to be taken within 3d of departure IF YOU ARE FULLY VACCINATED AND ARE A US CITIZEN (or a US national, or lawful permanent resident, or immigrant).
    If you are NOT vaccinated, then the test must be within 1d of departure.
    If you are NOT vaccinated and are not a US citizen (etc) then you can't enter the US by air.
