  • Those that are unable to download or use the application are required to report their health condition and symptoms to designated caseworkers.
COVID-19 Testing & Treatment
  • Travelers testing positive for COVID-19 during their sojourn period will have access to treatment  depending on when the positive result is submitted, the government may, or may not, pay for treatment.
Before arrival or during quarantine

Travelers being tested positive for COVID-19 before arrival or during their quarantine period must bear the entirety of the treatment costs.

It is highly encouraged to purchase international health insurance as treatment costs can be expensive.
