  • French Polynesia As of July 15, 2020, French Polynesia will no longer require a quarantine upon arrival for visitors, which was a major deterrent for visiting. Instead French Polynesia will require testing before travel, and will randomly test visitors during their stay:

    Visitors will need to take a PCR test no more than 72 hours before departure to French Polynesia; the test results will have to be shown at check-in, and you’ll only be able to travel if the result is negative
    Travelers who tested positive for COVID-19 more than three weeks prior to the departure and who have an immunity certificate proving recovery are exempt from these requirements
    While there will be no testing on arrival, four days after arrival the Ministry of Health and Prevention of French Polynesia will randomly test a panel of travelers during their stay

    Other restrictions French Polynesia imposes on visitors
    In addition to the PCR testing, there are some other things you can expect if visiting French Polynesia:

    International travel insurance is required for every non-resident visitor (credit card coverage would qualify)
    Visitors will have to sign a statement of commitment to follow sanitary measures and self-diagnosis of symptoms
    Visitors will have to fill in an information form regarding their stay, including itinerary, accommodation, and more
