International Travel and COVID-19

What to do in preparation for arriving to the United States and to the S&T campus

  • Guidance for travel is continually changing. Be sure to review the CDC and the US. Department of State requirements and recommendations for travel. 
  • As of May 12, 2023, all international travelers arriving to the U.S. will no longer be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Being up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations which includes a booster dose is highly recommended prior to any travel, but not required for travel to the U.S.
  • If you were vaccinated outside of the U.S., you may receive a booster dose, if eligible, in the U.S. with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna)
  • The CDC advises not to travel if you have tested positive for or suspect you have COVID-19 until you have ended isolation. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 , follow these precautions if you travel. If this applies to you or you have questions or concerns, please email S&T Student Health Services.
  • During travel: Follow these precautions to help protect yourself and others from severe illness from COVID-19
  • After travel: monitor for symptoms, isolate, and get tested if you develop symptoms.

Please review the international student information section regarding other vaccination and tuberculosis testing requirements and health insurance information.
