International Flights

Effective January 26, 2021 - The CDC has implemented expanded mandatory COVID-19 testing requirements for all international flights arriving into the United States. Any air traveler departing from a country outside of the U.S., including Mexico and the Caribbean, must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test before boarding.

Expanded CDC Testing Requirements include:

  • While guidelines evolve and change, please review the most updated information by visiting the CDC's website
  • All U.S.-bound air travelers are required to take a COVID-19 viral test within 72 hours of departure.
  • Written documentation of test results, with the name and information of the testing laboratory or health professional, must be provided to the airline before boarding.
  • Airlines accept electronic or paper documentation.
  • For those recovered from COVID-19, passengers are permitted to provide written evidence of having recovered, with documentation of test results conducted within three months of the flight date from a foreign country.
  • Airlines are required to confirm negative test results or documentation of recovery for all passengers.
  • If a passenger refuses to provide documentation or elects not to take a test, the airline will deny boarding to the passenger.
  • To slow the spread of COVID-19 within communities from travel-related infections, the CDC recommends testing three to five days post-arrival and self-quarantining for a minimum of seven days post-travel.
