Question to anyone that might be able to help.
We are in NY and they are telling us that our results may not be back by the time that we need them.
Can we pay and be tested in SXM at the airport?
Trying to think ahead.

Without the negative test and The SXM approval you probably will not be allowed to board the plane

There was testing at the airport to the tune of about $130 or so but it was for travelers with the incorrect test. You have to fill out a form prior to arriving in SXM and if you have no test at that point, I am not sure you would be approved to travel.

when we traveled to the island a couple of weeks ago we needed to have the pre-authorization document IN HAND before we could board a plane in the US...you receive the pre-authorization document from the SXM government by filling out an online application and uploading your test results before you begin your travels

Yup..agree...Approval form and negative test needed in hand before getting on the flight....of the two the key is the negative test results but I wouldn't chance trying to leave without both

The simple answer is no. You will not be permitted to board the plane without your negative test results and the EHAS approval form.

Without a negative test *AND* preapproval of it by EHAS in hand, you will not be allowed to fly to the island.

Once we submit the approval request form, how quick is SXM on getting it back to you?

I submitted on Thursday and heard others waited 20 minutes, 50 minutes, and ours took 3 and 4 hours which is still pretty good
