In compliance with the provisions established by the Ministry of Health, we reiterate:

That any airline wishing to enter El Salvador must require from their national or foreign passengers a negative PCR test result, issued by a laboratory within a maximum of 72 hours of flight departure. The crew, accredited diplomats and children under 2 years of age are exempted from this requirement.

If the test result is sent by the laboratory through any electronic means (E-mail, Whats App, Text Message) the passenger must print it, prior submitting it at the airline counter in the country of embarkation.

The test certificate submitted to the airline does not require the signature or the seal of the laboratory nor of the person responsible for performing said test.
