The Islands of Tahiti have reopened to U.S. travelers and have been designated “Safe Travels by WTTC.” As of May 1 U.S. travelers will be allowed to visit the Islands of Tahiti.
For your clients heading to the islands, here’s what you need to know on entry protocols, testing, and departure requirements:
- If travelers are vaccinated, they need to present proof of their CDC card into ETIS.pf. Those who receive Pfizer and Moderna can travel on the day of their second shot. If travelers received Johnson & Johnson, they must wait 14 days to travel.
- Travelers with proven immunity—a serological test that shows a positive test for antibodies—will have to upload information to ETIS.pf with a doctor’s note
- Non-vaccinated or immune travelers will be required to quarantine for 10 days
- Travelers must have been in the U.S. for 30 days prior to departure (not related to citizenship and, if you’re a U.S. citizen but have traveled outside the country within 30 days of departure, you are not allowed to travel to Tahiti)
- RT-PCR tests prior to departure are still in effect and must be taken three days in advance
- ETIS.pf still in effect
- Testing upon arrival and on the 4th day (more details coming soon) pricing $50 for vaccinated and immunized travelers, $120 for other travelers
- Return to USA antigen testing available at Faa’a up until 7 p.m.
- Children under 6 years old are not subject to quarantine and can travel with their vaccinated/immune parents. Children between over 6 and under 16, who have not been vaccinated (which is not possible currently) or can’t show proof of immunity from a previous infection, will have to quarantine with the entire family.
The Islands of Tahiti have been designated by “Safe Travels by WTTC”—the world’s first global health and safety label for travel and tourism, designed specifically to deal with COVID-19 and other similar health situations.
After reviewing the protocols and awareness actions deployed by French Polynesia, Gloria Guevara, president and CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), declared that she recognized the country’s efforts in the implementation of health security measures in accordance with the global “Safe Travels by WTTC” protocols.
