A Certificate of Vaccination is required for non-US passengers and immigrants arriving from another country to the US by air.

What you need to know about traveling to the USA

In the US only with the vaccine

  • Unless you are a US citizen or lawful permanent resident or traveling to the United States on an immigrant visa, you will need to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination before flying to the United States from another country.
  • Certain non-citizens and non-immigrants are exempt from this requirement. If you meet these criteria for one of these categories, you will need to meet additional requirements to travel by air to the United States.
  • Currently, all airline passengers 2 years of age or older, regardless of nationality or vaccination status must present a negative COVID-19 test or COVID-19 recovery documentation before boarding a flight to the United States.

The President of the United States issued a Proclamation on October 25, 2021. It says it is necessary to suspend and restrict entry to the United States for non-US citizens, referred to as “covered by insurance,” who wish to enter the United States by air and have not received the full COVID-19 vaccine. On the same day, the CDC issued an Executive Order on the implementation of the President’s instructions. The Proclamation and Order of the CDC does not apply to US citizens, lawful permanent residents of the US, immigrants or non-immigrants under certain circumstances, or crew members.
