  • Be sure to review CDC’s guidelines for what is needed to board a flight to the U.S. which may require proof of being fully vaccinated with limited exceptions.
  • Beginning January 5, all air passengers (regardless of COVID-19 vaccination or citizenship status) aged 2 and older traveling to the U.S. from China, Hong Kong, and Macau will need to show a negative COVID-19 viral test result taken no more than 2 days prior to flight departure. 
    • This also applies to those traveling to the U.S. from designated airports in Seoul, Toronto, and Vancouver who have been in China, Hong Kong or Macau in the past 10 days.
    • A COVID-19 viral test such as an antigen or nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) will be accepted.
    • Those who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days and more than 10 days before travel can show documentation of recovery in lieu of a test result.

  • Being up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations which includes a booster dose (additional dose after completing the primary series when eligible and if available) is highly recommended prior to any travel, but not required for travel to the U.S.  Only proof of completing the primary vaccination series is required.  If you were vaccinated outside of the U.S., you may receive a booster dose in the U.S. with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna).
  • After travel, monitor for symptoms, isolate, and get tested if you develop symptoms.
