U.S. entry requirements

A pre-departure COVID-19 test is no longer required for travelers entering the U.S., except for travelers who started their trip in China, Hong Kong and Macau, or visited those destinations within 10 days of departing for the U.S. All travelers must also provide their contact information within 72 hours of departure, and foreign nationals must sign an attestation that they meet U.S. entry requirements and are vaccinated.

Flying from China, Hong Kong and Macau

Starting January 5, 2023, at 12:01 a.m. ET, all passengers must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test to enter the U.S. from China, Hong Kong or Macau, taken no more than 2 days before departure. This includes passengers who:

  • Fly directly from China, Hong Kong or Macau
  • Connect in Seoul, South Korea (ICN), Toronto, Canada (YYZ) or Vancouver, Canada (YVR) and have been in China, Hong Kong or Macau in the past 10 days
  • Have any citizenship or vaccination status
  • Are age 2 and older

Travelers who tested positive more than 10 days before departure can provide documentation of recovery from COVID-19 instead of a negative test result. Otherwise, you must have an antigen test or nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT).

Without proof of a negative test result or documentation of recovery, you cannot fly and won’t be allowed to board the plane.

Face masks

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.

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