Travelers must have an original printed or electronic negative COVID-19 viral test result (NAAT: RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, TMA, NEAR, HDA, or Antigen: Rapid).

The test must be performed a maximum of 3 days before the first scheduled departure time in the flight itinerary. This requirement applies to all travelers, including US citizens, residents, and transit travelers, as well as travelers who have been vaccinated. Travelers may use a self-test (sometimes referred to as a home test) that meets the given criteria. 

Unvaccinated travelers are recommended to quarantine for 7-10 days after arrival in the United States.

Travelers are recommended to take a COVID-19 test 3-5 days after arriving in the USA. If the test is negative, it is recommended that travelers complete the 7-day quarantine. If the test is positive, they should self-isolate until they recover. Travelers that do not complete a test are recommended to quarantine for 10 days. Travelers should check quarantine requirements for the specific state they are traveling to, as some states may require mandatory quarantine for international travelers. 




This recommendation does not apply to:

  • -Travelers who are considered fully vaccinated: 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
