DOCUMENTS YOU NEED FOR YOUR TRIP

Mandatory proof of vaccination for the United States
Travelers are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if 2 weeks have passed since their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. Travelers are required to be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines and receive all doses in the primary vaccination schedule. The US government currently accepts vaccines approved or authorized for emergency use by the U.S. FDA and the WHO. Vaccines accepted are Pfizer-BioNTech (e.g., COMIRNATY/Tozinameran), AstraZeneca-Oxford (e.g., Covishield, Vaxzevria), Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Moderna, Sinopharm BIBP, Covaxin, Sinovac-CoronaVac, Convidecia (CanSinoBIO) and Novavax/Covovax. Any combination of 2 doses of an FDA approved/authorized or WHO emergency use listed COVID-19 2-dose series is accepted. The second dose in a 2-dose heterologous series must have been received no earlier than 17 days (21 days with a 4-day grace period) after the first dose. For more information about accepted proof of vaccination, please check the source. Travelers unable to present a valid certificate may be required to comply with rules for unvaccinated travelers.

-Travelers under the age of 18;
