Before you travel

  • All non-U.S. citizen, non-U.S. immigrants traveling to the United States by air are required to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Only limited exceptions apply.
  • You need a negative test. This test is not mandatory for children younger than 2 years.
    • If you are fully vaccinated: Proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 3 days before travel.
      • UPDATE 2/12/2021: Also vaccinated persons need a negative test result no older than 24 hours.
    • If you are NOT fully vaccinated: A negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 1 day before travel.
  • All air passengers to the United States will also be required to provide contact information to airlines before boarding flights to the United States. This strengthens a travel process already in place to rapidly identify and contact people in the U.S. who may have been exposed to a communicable disease, such as COVID-19. Access to travelers’ contact information will allow U.S. federal, state, and local health departments, and agencies to share appropriate health and public health information necessary to help keep the public safe.

During travel to the USA

Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is NOT required in indoor areas of public transportation and in U.S. transportation hubs (including on airplanes) traveling into, within, or out of the United States and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs (including airports). But on some international flights you might still be require to wear a mask. It’s also recommended to bring a mask with you on international travel as the mask wearing policy could vary.
