Latest Health Guidelines for Travelers

With so many uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, we understand you might be concerned about your travel plans but rest assured we are here to help New York Pass holders

How is COVID-19 impacting my upcoming travel plans with my New York Pass? 

Attractions are starting to re-open and they’re looking forward to welcoming you. That being said, we advise you to check the individual attraction websites for their most up-to-date information - we’ve included a full list below.

We’re working closely with attractions to help keep you up-to-date. To make it even easier for you to see scheduled reopenings, we’ve added flags to attraction images on the website - which highlight when an attraction is planning on opening. 

The New York Pass app says my pass is only valid for one year from purchase, although I’ve read that it will now work for 2 years.  How do I confirm my new expiration date?

We’ve already extended all passes in our system to a 2-year expiration date.  In some cases where you’ve already downloaded your passes, the PDFs (or the app) will still show a 1-year expiration, but please note they will still work for 2 years.  On pre-purchased passes, in order to see the updated 2-year expiration, please follow these instructions:

  • On the PDF:  you will need to download a new copy from your email confirmation.
  • On the App:  you will need to delete and then re-install the New York Pass app again.  Once you have downloaded a new copy, you should see the extended expiration date.  

If you have any issues with the display of the new expiration date, just send us a note and we’ll assist you with these steps.

Will entry to attractions be different?

Those attractions that have reopened may have done so with some changes to how New York Pass holders gain entry, and we’re working closely with them to ensure it’s seamless for you.  We’re adding the information we receive to the attraction pages of our website, and we advise that you check this when planning your visit. This may include changes like queuing further apart - each attraction will have its own process in place. 

We’ve also added some new attraction filters to help you plan your visit including ‘Outside of the city’ and ‘Outdoor attractions’. 

What is contactless entry? 

Our passes are digital - you simply download them via our app and they live on your phone for when you need them. There is no need to exchange cash or card for payment and attractions will not need to hold your phone to scan the pass. We’re working with as many attractions as possible to encourage contactless entry.

Should I purchase a pass now for an upcoming trip?

Definitely! Our highly-rated New York Passes remain available for advance purchases despite attractions being currently closed. If you purchase a pass now, you can have peace of mind that:

  • You'll have 90 days to return your pass, with no questions asked. For more information on refunds, visit our refund policy page.
  • You are supporting the tourism recovery effort and helping our family of attraction partners.
  • Contactless scanning at the attractions - no need to exchange money or hand over a credit card.
