Can I Travel to the U.S. During Covid?


If you are planning to travel to the US, you will need to get a viral covid test (i.e., a nucleic acid amplification test or a viral antigen) no more than 3 days before you travel by air into the country and show proof of your negative results to the airline before you board your flight, or present sufficient documentation of recovery from the virus within the last 90 days.


This Order applies to all air passengers (2 years of age or older), traveling into the US, including US citizens and legal permanent residents. Be aware that airlines must deny boarding of passengers who do not provide the required documentation regarding negative testing or recovery. This measure, first effective on January 26, is required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. See the CDC Proof of Negative Test Result page to view the order, complete the attestation, and see Frequently Asked Questions.    


On August 15, 2021, the CDC and the HHS Deputy Secretary granted a Department of State request for a blanket humanitarian waiver of pre-departure covid testing for individuals relocating to the U.S. from Afghanistan to include U.S. Citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents, Third Country Nationals, and Afghans at risk, including Afghan Special Immigrant Visa applicants. In order to meet the requirements for granting the waiver, all arrivals must undergo federally required Covid testing on arrival to the first port of entry into the United States.


Moreover, keep in mind that the CDC order does not replace the Presidential proclamations. Therefore, a negative test result for COVID-19 or recovery documentation does not exempt a foreign national from the travel restrictions outlined in the Presidential proclamations. With specific exceptions, several Presidential proclamations suspend and limit entry into the United States for immigrants or nonimmigrants; all noncitizens who were physically present within specific countries during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.

Information about visa processing for individuals who wish to travel to the United States is available here. More information about what to do after arriving  in the United States is available on the CDC’s After International Travel webpage.
