Coronavirus Travel Policy of Air Tahiti Nui, The AmericasPosted on 03/05/2020
Updated and Effective: Wednesday, March 4th, 2020
Dear Valued Partner of Air Tahiti Nui, The Americas:
As of Wednesday, March 4th, French Polynesia remains free of coronavirus.
The entry policy of the French Polynesian Government will change for departures to the destination from Monday, March 9th. Until that date the policy is:
Before March 9th, 2020
Travelers transiting through or that have visited one of the following countries within 30 days prior to their trip to French Polynesia:
Italy: Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia Romagna
Must carry a medical certificate no older than 5 days certifying their health condition, regardless of their port of departure. This medical certificate should state that the passenger is in good health and free of flu/viral symptoms (such as cough, sore throat, fever, etc.). Medical certificates may be obtained from the client’s Doctor, Hospital or a professional medical center, such as an Urgent Care facility.
In the event clients who require such a certificate are unable to obtain one prior to departure from LAX, a nearby 24-Hour Urgent Care facility outside of LAX Airport may be able to provide a signed medical certificate. US issued insurance may be accepted at this facility, otherwise a $165.00 USD charge will be applicable for a consultation and clearance for a travel certificate. For customers electing to seek a certificate, allow at least 5 hours as this facility is not connected to LAX, or the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
Reliant Urgent Care
5901 W. Century Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90045
Please note that Air Tahiti Nui is working on an easier and vastly simplified procedure for the issuance of the Medical Certificate. This requires another 24 to 48 hours of review.
In the meantime, commencing from:
Beginning March 9th, 2020
All passengers regardless of their nationality, or gateway of embarkation, traveling to French Polynesia must carry a medical certificate no older than 5 days certifying their health condition. This measure will be enforced through March 31st, 2020 pending extension of that policy.

For any passengers traveling to the United States of America --- any passenger who is NOT an American citizen holding an American passport OR legal permanent resident of the United States will be DENIED entry if they have been to Mainland China or Iran within the last 14 days.
