All international travelers entering the Republic of Palau are subject to the entry requirements listed below.
All travelers must provide valid proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, with final dose received at least 14 days prior to arrival in Palau.

Exit requirements
Travellers must be tested 24 hours prior to departure, per airline regulations, at a cost of $30.50 USD person.
This includes a printout of the result and can be organised onboard.
We recommend that you check your home country and airline requirements before departing on your trip.
Some countries or airlines require a negative RT-PCR test or Rapid Antigen Test to return home, testing facilities are available but may vary depending on your itinerary.

Don’t Be Surprised That:
Your luggage will be disinfected one or more times.
Most likely this will be done using a diluted bleach solution.
Choose your luggage accordingly and be prepared for it to happen behind the scenes and not always in your presence.
You will also undergo multiple Temperature Checks and be asked to complete symptom check-list affidavits where you affirm you are symptom free for the past 14 days.
This will likely be at airports, immigration stations, hotel check-ins and upon arrival at your Liveaboard.
