Starting December 7 United will begin making Covid-19 tests available for travelers to 10 destinations in the Caribbean and Latin America.
The option will be open to travelers flying from Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport to Aruba; Belize City; Guatemala City; Lima; Nassau, Bahamas; Panama City; Roatan, San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa in Honduras; and San Salvador, El Salvador.
United will contact travelers with instructions on how to order a self-collected, mail-in test costing $119 two weeks ahead of their flight. The test can be taken within 72 hours of departure, and Advanced Diagnostic Laboratory in San Antonio lab process them and provide results within 48 hours of the test being mailed.
United has worked with officials in these countries to make sure both residents and visitors will be allowed entry with a negative test.
