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.
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.
Answer a few questions to find out what’s needed for each traveler, including children, to board a flight to the United States.
All travelers to the U.S. must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken 1 day before departure (or proof of recovery) regardless of citizenship or vaccination status.
Travel requirements vary depending on where you’re from and your vaccination status:
Testing is not required for children under 2 years old.
Vaccinations are not required for children under 18 years old.
Keep in mind, you won’t be allowed to board the plane and cannot fly without showing proof of a negative test that meets Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements or documentation of recovery.
If you’re a non-U.S. citizen, you must also have proof of vaccination to fly, unless you qualify for an exception.
Non-U.S. citizens that qualify for a medical exception must contact Special Assistance at least 72 hours before departure for approval. You must also provide a signed doctor’s note confirming your medical contraindication to the vaccine.
The U.S. government requires all passengers flying to the U.S. – 2 years and older – to complete the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) attestation form confirming they meet entry requirements.
If you’re a non-U.S. citizen you must also have proof of vaccination against COVID-19 to fly, unless you qualify for an exception.
Sign and complete your attestation form online before your trip.
Print and complete the form for your date of travel and bring it to the airport to save time.
You can use the VeriFLY™ app if you're fully vaccinated.
The U.S. government requires each passenger flying to the United States to provide complete and accurate contact information to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Failure to provide complete and accurate information may result in criminal penalties.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend that people wear a face mask in indoor public transportation settings, but they aren’t required to be worn in airport settings or on your flight unless an individual jurisdiction has these requirements.
