Fully vaccinated travelers going to the CNMI no longer have to quarantine upon arrival.

Effective Thursday, verified vaccinated travelers can go straight to their home or lodging if they complete the mandatory health declaration form at least 72 hours prior to their arrival.

For travelers who were vaccinated outside of the CNMI, they must provide an official immunization record from their vaccine provider.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control Vaccination Record Cards are not accepted for travel into the CNMI.

Travelers coming from Level 1 jurisdictions do not have to test upon arrival. However, they will have to undergo lodging or home assessment and they will be tested on the 5th day after arriving.

Those who are coming from a Level 2 or higher jurisdiction can now be tested at the airport if they submitted their required entry documents at least 72 hours prior.

Masks in public areas are still necessary.
