The official Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updates provide the very latest information on health guidance. You should review the CDC website for the latest information about COVID-19 guidance.
The CDC recommends that you be fully vaccinated before traveling internationally. This guidance applies to COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (J&J)/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines and those vaccines that have been listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO). Visit the WHO website for more information about WHO-authorized COVID-19 vaccines.
All air passengers coming to the USA, including fully vaccinated people, are required to have a negative COVID-19 viral test result no more than 3 days before travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months before they board a flight to the USA. For further details, visit the CDC website.
