International and Interstate Travelers arriving in Ketchikan from outside Alaska:

If you are entering Alaska from another state or country, you are requested to submit a travel declaration through the Alaska Traveler Portal

Any person currently positive with COVID-19 cannot travel to Alaska until they have been released from isolation, or cleared for travel, by a medical provider or public health agency.  

Alaska resident and non-resident travelers arriving in Alaska from outside the state should consider one of the following options:

Obtain a pre-travel molecular-based test for SARS-CoV2. Travelers should submit negative test results from a test taken within 72 hours of departure into the Alaska Travel Portal or have proof of a negative test available to show screeners at the airport upon arrival. A second test taken between five and 14 days after arrival is also strongly recommended.

If arriving in Alaska before results have been provided, travelers should submit proof of a test taken within 72 hours of departure into the Alaska Travel Portal or have proof available of having taken a test to show screeners at the airport.

Returning Alaska residents who traveled outside the state for less than 72 hours should obtain a test upon return to Alaska and should self-monitor for any symptoms (even mild ones) for 14 days after arrival.
