Where on Roatan can one take a COVID-19 test that meets the requirements to travel or return to the USA from Roatan?
I’m sure you’ve heard that a negative covid-19 test is now a requirement to enter or return to the US after international travel. Effective January 26, all travelors flying from Roatan to the USA will have to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of travel. While this may sound like a pain, it is really a good thing. I feel personally safer on the flight knowing that everyone was tested in the last 3 days.
The tests can be either antigen or PCR. The antigen tests are available at several locations around Roatan. I recommend the clinic at Anthony’s Key Resort. It is about a 5 minute taxi ride from West End so the location is very convenient. The tests are done daily at 10 am and 2pm and the results are ready in about two hours. The test is $50. For the test, you need to bring a form of payment, either cash or credit card, and your passport number. The results can either be picked up in person or emailed to you. These results are accepted by the USA as proof of a negative covid-19 test within 72 hours of travel. Please open the image below to see a complete list of testing facilities on island.
As part of our rental service, we can arrange transport to and from Anthony’s Key Clinic as well as make an appointment for your test. If you do not want to return to pick up your test results, we can print them for you to bring to the airport, though a digital copy should suffice.
