Country COVID-19 Testing Requirements
Until further notice, it's Discover Corps' Policy that travelers take a COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of departure. Negative test results must be sent to Discover Corps once generated. Please check the Department of State's site for Mexico's most up-to-date guidelines. When applicable, local policy or Airline Policies supersede what is in place for Discover Corps. Note: You do not need to be tested if you've received both doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine & can provide Discover Corps with the vaccine card.
While the country of Mexico is not requiring that travelers take a COVID-19 PCR test before entry, Discover Corps is requiring this as a part of our Health & Safety Policy. The test must be taken within 72 hours of departure. Negative test results must be submitted to Discover Corps before departure.
Effective January 26, 2021, the CDC is implementing that all travelers returning to the U.S., have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of departing. Discover Corps will arrange for the testing to take place within the required timeframe, the traveler is responsible for the testing fee. Please reference Discover Corps' Risk Management Manual for a comprehensive overview of safety & health guidelines here.
