This is an unprecedented time as we all deal with the impacts of COVID-19. The city of Surprise wants to make sure you have information on what to expect as you travel here so you can have the best and safest experience possible while visiting us.


As of January 26 2021, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidelines for inbound international air travel. There are no state-implemented restrictions for individuals visiting Arizona from other U.S. state or international countries.


Arizona’s businesses have been authorized by the Governor to resume normal operations. Guidance on businesses operations has since been transitioned from requirements to recommendations.
