Amended Requirement for Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test or Recovery from COVID-19 for All Airline Passengers Arriving into the US
December 3, 2021
Effective December 6, 2021 at 12:01 am (EST), all individuals two years or older traveling into the United States via air travel will need to show proof of a negative result of a qualifying COVID-19 viral test taken no more than one day before departure from a foreign country. This requirement applies regardless of one’s vaccination status or citizenship.
Individuals who recently recovered from COVID-19 may instead travel with documentation of recovery (positive COVID-19 viral test result on a sample taken no more than 90 days before departure along with a letter from a licensed healthcare provider or a public health official confirming you were cleared to travel).
This Order is an amendment of CDC’s Order from October 25, 2021.
