Salvadoran capital airport to require COVID-19 tests from travelers
San Salvador, Sep 14 (Prensa Latina) El Salvador's international airport will require a negative Covid-19 test from travelers arriving as of next Saturday, when the air terminal will reopen.
The Autonomous Executive Port Commission (CEPA) informed the airlines flying to El Salvador that it will require a test carried out in the last 72 hours prior to the flight and it must be negative in order to enter the country.
The statement released by CEPA specified that the General Directorate of Migration and Foreigners will declare 'inadmissible' the passenger who arrives without the aforementioned exam, with a certification from the laboratory where it was carried out.
The San Oscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport closed its operations since last March to contain the entry of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus into the country, and only welcomes humanitarian flights and to repatriate stranded nationals.
El Salvador entered its second phase of economic opening on August 24, without the new cases of Covid-19 skyrocketing significantly.
