Before You Leave
Proof of negative pre-departure COVID-19 test results
All travelers regardless of their vaccination status must have an original printed or electronic negative COVID-19 viral test result (NAAT: RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, TMA, NEAR, HDA, SDA, CRISPR, or Antigen: Rapid, Viral, Antigen Chromatographic Digital Immunoassay, Antigen Chemiluminescence Immunoassay, or Antigen Lateral Flow Fluorescence). The test must be taken a maximum of 1 day before the first scheduled departure time in the flight itinerary (if a flight is at 1 pm on a Friday, travelers could board with a COVID-19 negative test that was taken any time on the prior Thursday).
Test results must include the traveler's full name and at least one other identifier such as date of birth or passport number. The test must also clearly state that the results are "negative," SARS-CoV-2 RNA not detected," SARS-CoV-2 antigen not detected," or "COVID-19 not detected." A test marked "invalid" is not acceptable.
This requirement applies to all travelers, including US citizens, residents, and transit travelers.
Travelers may use a self-test (sometimes referred to as a home test) that meets the given criteria. Please check the source for more information.
Some US states might have more strict rules regarding COVID-19 test types and where they must be administered. Please carefully review the rules before traveling to each state.
This requirement does not apply to:
- Travelers under the age of 2;
- Travelers who have recovered from COVID-19. These travelers must show proof of a positive viral test from the preceding 90 days and a letter from their healthcare provider or public health official stating they are cleared to end isolation.

Mandatory proof of vaccination
Travelers are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if 2 weeks have passed since their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
The US government currently accepts vaccines approved or authorized for emergency use by the U.S. FDA and the WHO. Vaccines accepted are Pfizer-BioNTech (e.g., COMIRNATY, Tozinameran), AstraZeneca-Oxford (e.g., Covishield, Vaxzevria), Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Moderna, Sinopharm BIBP, Covaxin, Sinovac-CoronaVac, and Novavax/Covovax.
Travelers unable to present a valid certificate may be required to comply with rules for unvaccinated travelers.
Any combination of 2 doses of an FDA approved/authorized or WHO emergency use listed COVID-19 2-dose series are accepted. The second dose in a 2-dose heterologous series must have been received no earlier than 17 days (21 days with a 4 day grace period) after the first dose.
For more information about accepted proof of vaccination, please check the source.
Mandatory travel attestation form
Travelers must complete a travel attestation form before arrival. This form will be provided by the airline.
Airlines may let you complete your attestation electronically during check-in or via partner apps such as VeriFLY. In this case it is not necessary to print the form, but travelers may do so as a precaution.
Section 1 of the form below must be completed by all travelers while section 2 must only be completed by travelers that are not citizens or residents of the USA.
