State and travel industry launch ‘Safe Travels’ initiative

Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) – The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities is partnering with the Alaska Department of Health & Social Services and the travel industry to launch “Safe Travels.”

“Safe Travels” promotes personal health-safety and increases awareness about Alaska’s COVID-19 health mandates and advisories affecting travel.


“There are relatively few routes of entry into Alaska, making our state essentially an island,” said DOT&PF Commissioner John MacKinnon. “Partnering with DHSS, and the travel industry to better communicate Alaska’s Travel Mandates is a strategic effort to reach travelers before they arrive and provide them the information they need to make their travel decisions.”


Travelers heading to Alaska by land, air, or sea are assured they are receiving the most accurate interstate travel information when they see Safe Travels. Safe Travels amplifies the information about Health Mandate 10 to improve the traveler experience. It includes information specific to non-resident travel, resident travel, critical infrastructure, and traveling while in Alaska


On Aug. 11, 2020, modifications to Health Mandate 010 took effect. All travelers to Alaska are required to complete an online Travel Declaration and Self-Isolation Plan.


Non-residents are strongly encouraged to complete a qualified pre-travel COVID-19 test to avoid a $250 testing fee upon arrival in Alaska.
