In response to an order from the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States — which calls for the expansion of the requirement for all airline passengers who enter the United States to have proof of a negative 2019 Novel Coronavirus test result to become effective as of today, Tuesday, January 26, 2021 — guests who stay at 19 participating resort properties in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and the Caribbean regions and are traveling to the United States will have access to complimentary testing for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus…

Complimentary 2019 Novel Coronavirus Testing Available With Hyatt Resort Properties in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and the Caribbean Regions — But…

…but the complimentary testing — which is to be done on site at each of the 19 participating resort properties — is only available for a maximum of two registered guests per room through Monday, May 31, 2021. Additionally, the testing options — either rapid antigen or real-time polymerase chain reaction tests, both of which are approved as per the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States — and minimum requirements pertaining to the length of a stay vary per resort property.

Guests may purchase additional tests on site for a fee — but additional tests are subject to availability.

The 19 resort properties which are participating in this initiative are listed in alphabetical order by country or territory:

ARUBA
BAHAMAS
BRAZIL
COSTA RICA
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
JAMAICA
MEXICO
SAINT KITTS

Summary

This initiative is an extension of the Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment of Hyatt Hotels Corporation — and not only would expanding it to other countries and regions be a significant benefit to guests who want to travel again; but other lodging companies should follow the lead of Hyatt Hotels Corporation if travel is to ever return to some semblance of normal as soon as possible.

Some airlines had already issued waivers for international travel back to the United States if passengers must change their itineraries as a result of the aforementioned order from the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States.

A test for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus may cost as much as $250.00 — or it may possibly be free of charge to you if you are insured and your insurance company covers it; or if you qualify for a federal program for uninsured persons in the United States.

This offer is subject to terms and conditions. For more information, you may contact the resort property directly; or you may contact the Global Contact Center of Hyatt Hotels Corporation at 800-323-7249.
