When we were going on April 20th, there were some people in front of us who were supposed to go the day before, but didn't have the code or paperwork. They were not allowed to go until they had it.

Yep. It's been the rule for long time and they enforce it. Last October following our trip to US for dr appts, we were sitting at the gate in JFK. Gate agents were going person to person checking docs. Just down the way from us sat one of our neighbors who was fighting and arguing that he was a homeowner (not a resident) and the rules did not apply to him. They were still arguing when we boarded the plane and he was not on the flight. No docs, no plane ride.

"No docs, no plane ride."
As it should be but we were never asked when we boarded in SEA or in CLT. First time checked was in SXM.

Gate agents need training. Hate to get to SXM and be stopped there.

It could easily happen if gate agents don't know the process especially if some visitors are ignorant to the requirements to go to St Maarten.

I don't want to go through that ever again!! We had a stack of papers going and coming home to choke a horse!! I didn't feel bad for this couple, (JFK) he was a real jerk and thought who the hell is was. No paperwork no fly !!! The cruise ships are going in the direction of valid vaccine cards. I pray this happens soon. We're booked for Oct into Nov!


Sand Gravity, got to love it!

we witnessed something like this but for return to US...a couple we had been chatting with in line at the airport were totally caught off guard when an airport employee asked for their test results...they proceeded to show them the results they had used to enter SXM...lol...had no idea they had to be tested in SXM for return to US...lucky for them they offer the testing there at PJIA, which is where the CSR directed them

I'm pretty sure He is asking about when the vaccination in lieu of test will be effective...
