U.S Updated International Travel Requirements
January 26, 2021
Negative COVID-19 Test Required For All Air Passengers Returning To The U.S.Effective January 26, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will require all air passengers entering the United States (including U.S. citizens and Legal Permanent Residents) to present a negative COVID-19 test, taken within three calendar days of departure. If you have tested positive in the past three months and have met the requirements to end isolation, you must provide a copy of the positive test and a letter from a doctor clearing you for travel. Those who have received one or both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are still required to provide the negative test result. Many countries are already arranging convenient testing sites located at airports and hotels so check with your accommodations to see what is available!

Tips For Staying Safe While Traveling:
- Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who did not travel with you, particularly in crowded areas. It’s important to do this everywhere — both indoors and outdoors.
- Wear a mask to keep your nose and mouth covered when you are in shared spaces outside of your home, including when using public transportation.
- Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Watch your health: Look for symptoms of COVID-19, and take your temperature if you feel sick.
