With COVID, many rules have come, especially when it comes to international travel. Make sure you have all your ducks in a row or you may be delayed on your way home. Even if you’ve had all recommended vaccine doses, you must follow local, state, and federal testing and travel rules.
Before Travel Questions
- Have you been vaccinated against COVID-19?
- Have you had booster doses?
- Are you at increased risk for severe illness?
- Do you live with someone who’s at increased risk for severe illness?
- Does your home or destination have requirements or restrictions for travelers?
- Have you checked local requirements and restrictions? All states are different when it comes to masks, testing, and vaccinations. Further, the pandemic is still fluid and can change quickly, so keep an app on your phone and check as often as you do the weather.
- Before arriving to the U.S., do you need a negative test within the last day before your arrival or a record of recovery from COVID-19 in the last three months?
- After you arrive in the U.S., do you need to get tested 3 to 5 days after your trip? If you’re traveling to the U.S. and you aren’t a citizen, you need to be fully vaccinated and have proof of vaccination.
