Health and testing requirements

The U.S. and countries around the world have a range of travel restrictions and testing requirements due to COVID-19. You may not be allowed to travel to certain destinations or may be required to self-quarantine when you arrive.

Travel requirements are updated often, so we recommend checking the latest entry requirements before your trip.

U.S. entry requirements

The U.S. government has changed requirements to enter the U.S. based on citizenship / residence and vaccination status. All travelers 2 and older entering the U.S. must provide their contact information within 72 hours of departure and a negative COVID-19 test. Travelers must also sign an attestation form confirming they meet U.S. entry requirements or will not be allowed to board the plane.

We recommend checking the cities / countries you’re traveling to / through / from for the latest updates and travel requirements.
