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 Costa Rica'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.

  • Currently, Peru requires inbound international passengers on commercial flights to have either a negative real-time COVID-19 molecular (RT-PCR), negative antigen test result, or a medical certificate of epidemiological discharge that is no more than 72 hours old after being issued and before boarding the plane. Children under the age of 12 can present a certificate of health issued by a medical doctor in lieu of a negative test.

  • All passengers must also complete an affidavit of health (found here: https://e-notificacion.migraciones.gob.pe/dj-salud/). These requirements may change, so we advise you to contact your airline days prior to your flight to gather the proper documentation and regularly consult the airport website for the latest guidance: https://www.lima-airport.com/eng/for-passengers/covid-19-protocol/arrival-protocol (in English)


Exit Requirements

  • 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.
