Prior to boarding a flight to the United States, international visitors should prepare for:

Proof of Vaccination Requirement

International visitors to the United States must provide proof of full vaccination prior to boarding their flight to the United States. Accepted vaccines include those that are FDA approved or authorized, as well as vaccines with an emergency use listing (EUL) from the World Health Organization (WHO). Individuals can be considered fully vaccinated at least two weeks after the last dose of an accepted single-dose series or any combination of two doses of an accepted two-dose series. Children under the age of 18 are exempt from the vaccine requirement, and other limited exceptions apply.

More information about the vaccination requirement and documentation is available from the CDC.

Contact Tracing Requirement

All air passengers to the United States are required to provide contact information to airlines before boarding flights to the United States for the purposes of contact tracing. This process is critical to detect and respond to variants of COVID-19, helping protect the public and international visitors.

State and Local Requirements

As the world moves from pandemic to endemic, please check with the destination, hotel, attractions, etc. directly for specific COVID-related guidelines.
