The Biden Administration announced Monday all airlines operating in the United Stares will be forced to check for a passenger’s proof of vaccination and will require contact tracing when international visitor restrictions end next month,
All unvaxxed US citizens will need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test from within one day of departure.
On November 8, non-U.S. citizens who are not immigrants to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status to fly to the United States. There will be very limited exceptions to this vaccination requirement for certain non-U.S. citizens who are not immigrants, including children under the age of 18.
Fully vaccinated air passengers, regardless of citizenship, will continue to be required to show a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test taken no more than three days before they board their flight to the United States. For passengers who are not fully vaccinated, the rules will tighten to require a test taken no more than one day before departing to the United States.
All air passengers to the United States will also be required to provide basic contact information to airlines before boarding flights to the United States.
