Make sure to plan ahead

Follow all airline requirements as well as any requirements at your destination including mask-wearing, proof of vaccination, testing, or quarantine. Requirements may differ from U.S. requirements. If you do not follow your destination’s requirements, you may be denied entry and required to return to the United States.

Get Tested

If you are not fully vaccinated, get tested with a viral test and get test  1–3 days before your trip.

Do NOT travel if…

  • You have been exposed to COVID-19 unless you are fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days.
  • You are sick.
  • You tested positive for COVID-19 and haven't ended isolation.
  • You are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test.

Learn what to do in each of these situations and when it is safe for you to travel if you or your travel companion may have COVID-19.

During Travel

Masks (is a must)

Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required in indoor areas of public transportation (including on airplanes) traveling into, within, or out of the United States and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs (including airports).

Protect Yourself and Others

  • Follow all recommendations and requirements at your destination, including wearing a mask and staying 6 feet (2 meters) apart from anyone who did not travel with you.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 

If You Recovered from COVID-19 Recently

If you recovered from a documented COVID-19 infection within the past 90 days (regardless of vaccination status), you do NOT need to get a test 3–5 days after travel. People can continue to test positive for up to 90 days after diagnosis and not be infectious to others. You also do not need to self-quarantine after travel. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms after travel, isolate and consult with a healthcare provider for testing recommendations.
