Travelers Responsibilities
Before traveling, Aggressor Adventures recommends each guest review the travel restrictions applied by each country, the specific airline regulations, and the entry requirements of the destination.

There are several ways to do this:

  • Use the passport, visa and health travel document requirements page from IATA.  This site matches the passport country with the destination country and provides a list of entry requirements.

  • Guests may also visit the travel advisory site for the country that issued your passport (for example State Department, Foreign Office, etc.)
The information for travel restrictions and guidelines may change quickly. Travelers need to have all the proper documents in hand at the time of travel.  It is each guest's responsibility to ensure you have all of the appropriate forms before traveling.

Country:      Ecuador (Galapagos Islands)
Adventure Program:      Galapagos Aggressor III (Operational)
Last Updated:      19-Aug-2020    15:00 EST
KBYG Supplement:             <Click Here>
Re-Opening Notes:         
The Ecuadorian government declared the Galapagos Islands COVID-19 free and has reopened the Galapagos National Park.  Both Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands have opened to foreign tourists.   The National Emergency Operations Committee (EOC) has approved commercial air travel for the Galapagos Islands.  Hotels, the national park, restaurants, and ferries are all resuming operations. 
 
The COVID disease, although still active, appears to be under control, with the number of new cases getting lower and lower thanks to the movement restrictions and mandatory quarantines that the government had imposed earlier.  As part of the opening, the government now accepts a negative COVID-19 test result from travelers as an alternative to mandatory quarantine. 
 
The Galapagos Aggressor resumes departures on September 10, 2020.    To reach the Galapagos Islands there is a two-step process.
 
Step 1:   Is arriving in mainland Ecuador.   The requirements for entry into Ecuador for travelers are as follows:
  • Having taken the diagnostic molecular COVID-19 PCR Swab Test and obtained a Negative Result. The test must be taken no more than ten (10) days before entering the country.
    • If the traveler receives a negative test result, the traveler may terminate the quarantine. 
    • If the traveler receives a positive test result, the traveler must continue the quarantine and necessary health care will be provided.
    • As long as the traveler does not present symptoms of COVID, the traveler does not need to perform mandatory preventative quarantine and they may freely move within the continental territory of Ecuador. 
    • Travelers who do not provide the results of a PCR test must undertake, at their own expense, a PCR test upon arrival.  The traveler must then proceed immediately to quarantine in a hotel, hostel, motel or other temporary accommodation authorized for such purpose. 
  • Travelers must present a copy of a completed “Travel Health Form” to officials as part of the entry process.
  • Be prepared for temperature screenings upon arrival, at check-in, and at entrances to attractions and restaurants.  
  • Please note procedures may change at any time and without notice.
 
 
Step 2:   Is arriving in the Galapagos Islands.   Entry requirements for this protected area are different from the mainland and include:
  • Visit the CGREG (Government Council of the Special Galapagos Regime) counter at the airport.
    • They will verify safe conduct and booking with tour authorized tour operator.
    • You will pay USD $20 (cash only) and collect a transit control card.
    • Your luggage will be checked for any restricted products.
  • Register at the airline counter and present a negative result of a diagnostic molecular COVID-19 PCR Swab Test. The test must be taken no more than ninety-six (96) hours before arriving in the Galapagos Islands.  The test results must be presented at check-in for your flight and at arrival in the islands.
    • For a cruise that starts on Thursday, the earliest the test could be taken is on Monday. 
    • This may be done in your country of origin if travel plans allow.
    • The test can also be obtained locally upon arrival in Ecuador.  (See General Notes below.)
  • During the flight, fill out the biosecurity control form for the Agency for the Regulation and Control of Biosafety and Quarantine for Galapagos (ABG).
  • Upon arrival in the Galapagos, you will need to pay the Galapagos National Park Fee – USD $100 (cash only).
  • Guests are required to have proof of valid health/medical insurance that includes the cost of air evacuation to the mainland.
 
 
General Notes:
  • Timing will be important so as to coordinate the two entry requirements.
  • We recommend entering via Guayaquil. Most flights arrive in the evening.  Scheduling a Monday evening arrival will provide a comfortable margin to have a COVID-19 test completed locally for entry into the Galapagos Islands.
  • There is a certified lab in Guayaquil that can return results via email in approximately 24 hours. The fee is USD approximately $120, payable by the traveler.  Details are being finalized for offering testing at the airport which will allow the test sample to be collected immediately upon arriving in-country.

The four airports are Sharm El-Sheikh and Taba airports in South Sinai, and the Hurghada and Marsa Alam airports in the Red Sea governate.  One of these airports must be the first entry into Egypt.  Transiting through Cairo to one of these destinations does not qualify for on-arrival testing.
  • Visas on arrival service is open. eVisas purchased in advance are also available from visa2egypt.gov.eg.
  • All travelers will be required to submit a traveler's declaration including a questionnaire on information on trips undertaken in the 14 days before coming to Egypt and a confirmation that the passengers have not shown any symptoms of Covid-19 or knowingly been in touch with coronavirus patients.
  • All travelers will need to have international medical insurance covering their stay in Egypt.
  • The wearing of face masks inside airport facilities, physical distance is maintained, and the temperature of all travelers and airport staff is checked and luggage is disinfected before being placed on conveyor belts.
  • Onboard Safari or Daily dive boats, the vessels will operate at a reduced capacity and the wearing of face masks is obligatory.
  • If you are using (the optional) airport arrival transfers arranged by Aggressor Adventures, be sure to advise your Adventure Planner if you will be arriving with a completed test certificate or will be undergoing testing upon arrival. This is needed so that your transfer can be scheduled correctly.

Honduras has implemented biosecurity procedures related to air travel that govern entering and leaving the country.  These include:
 
  • Travelers must complete Immigration pre-registration. Visit https://prechequeo.inm.gob.hn.   This form includes Travel Information, Travel Documents (passport), Personal Information, and a Health Interview.  Upon completion, you will be emailed a “pre-check” form to print out to travel with.

    • In unforeseen circumstances, the passenger will undergo a clinical evaluation by the staff of the International Health Office.

    • There is an option to use a Rapid Diagnostic Test (with a negative result) – however, it does require travelers to self-quarantine for 14-days prior to circulating around the island.
 
  • You must have paper copies of your Immigration Pre-Check and your COVID-19 test results. You will be asked to show both at multiple points prior to boarding the flight and upon arriving in Roatan.

  • You must comply with the Protocol established in the International Health Regulations at the time of entry into the country (clinical evaluation and mandatory quarantine) if the health authority determines so.
 
  • You must comply with other biosafety measures established in the Protocols of the Secretary of State in the Health Office (mandatory use of mask).
 
  • All travelers must ensure that they meet the requirements to leave the country and enter the country of (return) destination. The fulfillment of the requirements is the responsibility of the passenger.
 
  • Any foreign passenger that develops symptoms of acute respiratory infection or shows signs or symptoms compatible with a contagious disease, including COVID-19, will undergo the process established in the protocol of biosecurity measures of international airports in Honduras (Civil Aviation Industry) Section 7 and 8 of the handling of suspicious cases in airports and aircraft.
 
  • We reiterate to the population to take into account all the biosecurity measures that have been implemented in the air terminals and aircraft to be at least three (3) hours before their trip in the corresponding air terminal.
 
If an additional test is required in order for you to return to your home country, there are private labs in Roatan that are capable of doing this (fee to be paid by the traveler).  The local municipality of Roatan and cooperating with some very generous private donations has been able to establish a COVID-19 Center that has a 37-bed facility to treat individuals who may have the virus.
