Air travel is pretty much back to normal now for U.S. citizens. There are no pre-departure testing requirements for any travelers, and Americans arriving from abroad do not need to show proof of vaccination. The same applies to immigrants and lawful permanent residents as well.
The CDC does still recommend pre-departure testing for all passengers flying to the U.S., but it is not required.
Foreign nationals, however, are still required to show proof of vaccination to enter the U.S. before boarding their flight.
Here’s what the CDC counts as fully vaccinated for the purposes of international visitors:
- Two weeks (14 days) after your dose of an accepted single-dose vaccine
- Two weeks (14 days) after your second dose of an accepted two-dose series
- Two weeks (14 days) after you received the full series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine (not placebo) in a clinical trial
- Two weeks (14 days) after you received two doses of any “mix-and-match” combination of accepted COVID-19 vaccines administered at least 17 days apart.
