COVID-19 – Information about Travel to the United States

Last Updated: May 12, 2023

Update on Change to U.S. Travel Policy Requiring COVID-19 Vaccination for Nonimmigrant Travel

The Administration ended the COVID-19 vaccine requirements for international air travelers at midnight on May 11, 2023, the same day that the COVID-19 public health emergency ended. This means starting May 12, 2023, noncitizen nonimmigrant air passengers no longer need to show proof of being fully vaccinated with an accepted COVID-19 vaccine to board a flight to the United States. CDC’s Amended Order Implementing Presidential Proclamation on Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the COVID-19 Pandemic is no longer in effect since the Presidential Proclamation Advancing the Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the COVID-19 Pandemic was revoked.
