    Effective July 4, 2021, those arriving with a negative PCR test result collected within 72 hours of arrival are exempt from quarantine. These travelers can receive the vaccine as soon as they arrive on Guam, with a pre-scheduled appointment.

    Can my family get vaccinated on Guam too?

    Yes, see age criteria above (under ‘Eligibility’).

     

    How long will I have to stay on Guam?

    Your length of stay is dependent on the COVID-19 vaccine selected and desired length of leisure stay. 

  • How long will I have to quarantine?

    A 10-day quarantine at a government facility (QFAC) is required for arriving passengers who 

    • are not fully immunized with U.S. FDA authorized or World Health Organization (WHO) Emergency Use Listing (EUL) COVID-19 vaccine; or
       
    • do not present a negative PCR test result collected within 72 hours prior to arrival into Guam (effective at 12:01am on July 4, 2021); or
       
    • do not present documentation of COVID-19 recovery within the 3 months preceding their arrival.

     

    On day 6 of quarantine in the QFAC, the traveler may take a COVID-19 test administered by DPHSS or another provider to be released (subject to availability).  If the test result is negative, the traveler will be released from quarantine on day 7. If the traveler opts NOT to take a COVID-19 test on day 6 of quarantine, they are required to complete the 10-day quarantine in the QFAC.

     

    Travelers arriving with a negative antigen test result taken within 72 hours of arrival may be subject to home quarantine.

     

    Are meals provided during quarantine in the QFAC?

    Three meals are provided daily during quarantine in the QFAC. If quarantined at a rental lodging or personal residence, the traveler is responsible for their meals.

     

    Will I have to pay for my stay in the QFAC?

    The Government of Guam pays for the daily room fee and meals for the duration of your quarantine in the QFAC. If quarantined at a rental lodging or personal residence, the traveler is responsible for all costs.

  • Can I choose my place of lodging?

    If the traveler is exempt from quarantine or if they are eligible for home quarantine, they must choose their place of lodging. If not exempt from quarantine, the traveler should make self-paid lodging arrangements beginning the day they are released from quarantine.

     

    Do I need to find transportation to and from the airport?

    If the traveler is exempt from quarantine or if they are eligible for home quarantine, they must make their own transportation arrangements. If quarantining in the QFAC, the traveler will be transported to the QFAC by the government.

  • What happens if I test positive for COVID-19 while on Guam?

    If the traveler tests positive they will be isolated according to DPHSS protocol.

     

    Guam has three hospitals - Guam Memorial Hospital (public civilian hospital), Guam Regional Medical City (private civilian hospital), and U.S. Naval Hospital (access only to eligible beneficiaries).

  • What happens if re-entry protocols in the Philippines change while I am on Guam?
