Starting Tuesday, May 18, individuals who received the COVID-19 vaccine on Guam may request their secondary form of vaccination verification by calling the following numbers:


  • (671) 688-2115
  • (671) 686-5420
  • (671) 787-3758
  • (671) 687-1531

Individuals who were vaccinated on Guam will not be mandated to present vaccination verification upon arrival to the A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority. This service, however, will be made available to the community in the event the traveler needs it for entry into other jurisdictions. Availing of the vaccination verification documentation may also streamline the arrival process for passengers seeking entry into Guam.
