Update on travel requirements to the United States
2 MINUTE READ
October 26, 2021

Effective November 8, 2021, fully vaccinated air travelers will continue to be required to show documentation of a pre-departure negative viral test from a sample taken within three days of travel to the United States before boarding or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days. That includes all travelers – U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents (LPRs), and foreign nationals.

To further strengthen protections, unvaccinated travelers – whether U.S. citizens, LPRs, or the small number of excepted unvaccinated foreign nationals – will now need to show documentation of a negative viral test from a sample taken within one day of travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days to the United States.
