    What You Need to Know

    • If you are a non-U.S. citizen who is a nonimmigrant (not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, lawful permanent resident, or traveling to the United States on an immigrant visa), you will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before you travel by air to the United States from a foreign country.
    • Some categories of noncitizen, nonimmigrants are excepted from this requirement. If you meet the criteria for one of these categories, you will need to fulfill additional requirements to travel by air to the United States.

    On April 4, 2022, CDC issued an Amended Order  to align post arrival public health requirements for excepted noncitizen nonimmigrants with current CDC recommendations. The Amended Order also clarifies that parents or guardians do not need to complete an attestation on behalf of children under 2 years of age; and formalizes other guidance described in Technical Instructions, announced in frequently asked questions, and in the attestation. This amendment is effective as of April 14, 2022 at 12:01am EDT.

    The Proclamation and CDC’s Amended Order do not apply to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, U.S. lawful permanent residents, immigrants, or, under certain circumstances, air crew members. Additionally, the Proclamation and CDC’s Amended Order have no effect on certain groups of non-citizens.

    For more information, including exceptions, see Presidential Proclamation  and Frequently Asked Questions  below.

    Are you Fully Vaccinated for Air Travel to the United States?

    You are considered fully vaccinated:

    • 2 weeks (14 days) after your dose of an accepted single-dose vaccine
    • 2 weeks (14 days) after your second dose of an accepted 2-dose series
    • 2 weeks (14 days) after you received the full series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine (not placebo) in a clinical trial
    • 2 weeks (14 days) after you received 2 doses of any “mix-and-match” combination of accepted COVID-19 vaccines administered at least 17 days apart*

    If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT considered fully vaccinated. A booster dose is not needed to meet this requirement.

    A person who has received only one dose of an accepted 2-dose series and has recovered from COVID-19 does not meet this definition, and therefore is NOT considered fully vaccinated for travel to the United States.

    *CDC has not recommended the use of mix-and-match COVID-19 vaccine primary series. However, such strategies are increasingly common in many countries outside of the United States. Therefore, for the purpose of interpreting vaccination records for travel to the United States, CDC will accept combinations of accepted COVID-19 vaccines .

    The Presidential Proclamation and CDC’s Amended Order do not apply to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or U.S. lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders).

    • Non-U.S. citizens eligible for asylum;
    • Non-U.S. citizens eligible for withholding of removal;

    NOTE: Certain categories of non-U.S. citizens, including immigrant visa applicants/holders, refugees, parolees, and asylees, and those seeking to enter the United States by land or sea travel may be subject to separate COVID-19 vaccination requirements. These individuals are advised to consult and become familiar with all applicable U.S. requirements for entry.

Based on the category of the exception, you may further be required to attest that:

    2. You will self-quarantine for a full 5 days, even if the test result to the post-arrival viral test is negative, unless you have documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days; and
    3. You will self-isolate  if the result of the post-arrival test is positive or if you develop COVID-19 symptoms.

    Depending on the category of the exception, if you intend to stay in the United States for longer than 60 days you may additionally be required to attest that

    • You agree to be vaccinated against COVID-19; and
    • You have arranged to become fully vaccinated against COVID-19 within 60 days of arriving in the United States, or as soon thereafter as is medically appropriate.

    For more information about what each exception category has to attest to, see the attestation .

    A parent or other authorized person should attest on behalf of a passenger under 18 years old. An authorized person may attest on behalf of any passenger who is unable sign their own attestation (e.g., because they are too young, or because of physical or mental impairment). Children under 2 years of age do not need to complete an attestation. As required by United States federal law, all airlines or other aircraft operators will provide and collect the passenger attestation on behalf of the U.S. Government.

    If you are a noncitizen nonimmigrant and are fully vaccinated, make sure your vaccine and proof of vaccination  are acceptable to board a flight to the United States.

    • Name of official source issuing the record (e.g., public health agency, government agency, or other authorized vaccine provider)

    • You are considered fully vaccinated on the 14th day after the vaccination series was completed. For example, if your last dose was any time on October 1st, then October 15th would be the first day that you meet the 14-day requirement.
