The health protocol applicable to travelers arriving in Polynesia from May 1 was published this Thursday in the official journal.
This only concerns entries by air, since the maritime borders are still closed.
Little surprise: as planned and announced at the press conference on April 15 by President Édouard FRITCH and High Commissioner Michel SORAIN, travelers vaccinated or who will prove acquired immunity following contamination will be able to avoid the quarantine of 10 days upon arrival. Children under 6 are exempt. The others will have to pay for their quarantine on a dedicated site, or ask to have it done at home. If the price of isolation in a hotel has not been specified, all travelers must provide a negative PCR test to embark and pay a flat rate online to cover the cost of the compulsory tests at the fenua: 12,000 francs for those undergoing quarantine (an antigen test at the airport, and two tests on D + 4 and D + 8) and 5,000 francs for the vaccinated and immunized (antigen test at the airport and virological test 4 days later ).
This protocol is applicable to all travelers regardless of their origin. However, only people who have lived in the United States for at least 30 days and arriving from Los Angeles can come to the fenua for sightseeing. From Paris, compelling reasons (health, professional, family) will remain compulsory.
Registration on the ETIS platform must, again from May 1, be made between 30 days and 6 days before departure. Late check-in may result in a ban on boarding. Tahiti Tourisme further specifies that the airport test center will be reactivated as of May 1 (from noon to 6.30 p.m.) for travelers departing to the United States, who must present an antigen test on arrival.
