Coronavirus and FAQs at (SFO) airport

Coronavirus Answers and Frequently Asked Questions for Passengers at San Francisco airport (SFO)


Worldwide situation. General considerations
Due to the advancement of vaccination worldwide, documentation and testing restrictions have been eliminated in many countries. In fact, in some countries, by presenting the complete vaccination certificate against Coronavirus, RT-PCR or antigen test results are no longer required, nor is a health affidavit form.

However, we insist once again, that in the situation of constant changes, it is always important to ask and arrange details with the airline and, if necessary, with the airport as well as, in the case of international flights, with the embassy or consulate near the final destination, and also with the countries involved for connecting flights, if any.

There are three facilities inside the enclosure where passengers can get tested for COVID-19. Although it is not mandatory, it is recommended to book an appointment beforehand at the following LINK. It is also recommended to get tested the day before your flight. You must show a valid boarding pass or airline reservation to use these services.

- Express PCR (results in 12 hours)
