COVID-19 Travel Requirements

Explorer C

We will be able to obtain a Covid-19 test prior to our 5 night stay in Cabo in order to meet the following.


All passengers must submit a verification to the U.S. Government, through Southwest Airlines®, stating that the passenger is COVID-19 negative or has recently recovered from COVID-19.


How are we to meet the following if we are staying 5 nights?

In addition, each passenger must also bring evidence of the passenger's qualifying COVID-19 negative viral test result or recent recovery from COVID-19, which could be either (A) a physical or electronic documentation of a qualifying COVID-19 negative viral test* taken within 3 calendar days preceding the passenger's flight's departure to the U.S. OR (B) evidence of recent recovery from COVID-19. To show proper evidence that the passenger has successfully recovered from the COVID-19 virus, the passenger must include (1) a signed letter on letterhead from a licensed healthcare provider or public health official that the passenger has recovered from COVID-19 and is cleared for travel, and (2) physical or electronic documentation of a COVID-19 positive viral test result obtained within the 90 days preceding the passenger's flight to the United States.

You have to get tested again before you return. You will have to get tested in Cabo. 

Good luck.

Since I have upcoming plans, (not booked yet) to go to CABO or other places in Mexico, does anyone know of testing sites or the process in CABO?  Other SWA Mexico destinations?  This is in regard to returning.  Thanks so very much.
