There are many areas in Alaska that travelers will want to explore. Some popular travel destinations include Anchorage, Fairbanks, Palmer, Juneau, Denali National Park, Ketchikan, Skagway and Whittier National Parks. There are also some travel restrictions and guidelines in place to keep everyone safe and enjoy their trip. In regard to international travel, all international airfare and lodging are subject to rules and regulations of the airlines, hotels, travel agencies, etc. If you are traveling to Alaska from another state, the travel restrictions will be different.

For those who are planning to travel to areas outside of their state, they should be aware of their states’ travel rules and quarantine requirements. Some examples include: travelers to Alaska must take a quiz to determine if they are allowed to travel, if they have a contagious illness that would make them a public health risk, or if they test positive for an STD or HIV. Anyone who does not comply with the terms and conditions of the quiz could be refused entry into the state. Those who test positive or exhibit symptoms of an STD or HIV must follow up with a medical examination and be quarantined for up to three weeks. Travelers who refuse to follow these requirements may be detained indefinitely.
