Guatemala has added evidence requiring vaccination for entry

Guatemala's international tourism will soon have to present vaccine evidence to enter the country. This new travel requirement, which went into effect on Monday, January 10, 2022, exceeds entrance exam requirements.

From Monday the travel conditions for all international visitors to Guatemala are:

All passengers 12 years of age or older must provide proof of full vaccination upon arrival. This means two doses of the desired vaccine (Modonna, Pfizer, etc.) or one dose of Johnson & Johnson Wax. The last dose should be given at least two weeks before travel to Guatemala.
All passengers aged 10 years and above must prove a negative COVID test result (PCR and antigen now accepted) before crossing the border at an airport or land border. Do not pick up 3 days before arrival Guatemala.

Exceptions apply to vaccine certificates - Traveler Data
These new entry requirements do not apply to residents or citizens of Guatemala.

If you have any medical objections to vaccination against CoVID-19, travelers must bring an official medical certificate certifying the conditions presented at the border in the entry instructions.


The northern border is a popular route for tourists to the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, the only country that does not require entry, such as a vaccine or vaccination certificate.

According to the latest guidelines on the US Embassy website, all international visitors must have a vaccination certificate and negative check at the airport and at the border crossing.

A negative quad test or a completed vaccination certificate may be sent to Guatemalan citizens, residents and diplomats.


Like many countries in the world, Guatemala has seen a surge in virus cases in recent weeks. The country now accounts for 29 percent of cases, according to Reuters, with an average of more than 1,150 new infections recorded daily.

For the past year, Guatemala has been open to international tourism, with no strict entry requirements. When Central America became the first Latin American country to identify vaccinated tourists in early 2021, non-vaccinated travelers were allowed to travel to Guatemala if they tested negative.

According to the CDC, Guatemala is currently considering a Level 3 "re-evaluation" due to rising crime and increasing cowardice across the country.


Guatemala has everything you need, from volcanic eruptions to peaceful scenery and lazy coastal towns.

The city of Antigua is one of the most sought after destinations in Guatemala. Famous for its backpackers, hikers and adventurers, not to mention the peaceful Lake Atlantis, a colonial city surrounded by volcanic eruptions.

A volcano is an active volcano near Pacaya, a moderate/moderate eruption. For a more detailed experience. The Acatenango Vulcan is a more challenging (but rewarding) track where you can spend the night and spend the night in the mountains.
