Covid Travel Requirements For USA

Last Checked & Updated: 10th February 2022

If you’re fully vaccinated

Most fully vaccinated foreign citizens can enter the USA. 

British nationals planning to travel to the USA should familiarise themselves with the new requirements on the CDC website before booking any travel.

Before boarding a flight to the USA, most passengers - regardless of vaccination status - are required to show a negative Covid-19 test (PCR or antigen) result taken no more than 1 day before travel. Children under 2 years old do not need to test.

Upon arrival, fully vaccinated travellers:

  • do not have to quarantine
  • are recommended to take a viral test (PCR or Antigen) within 3 to 5 days of arrival in the US

If you have recovered from a documented Covid-19 infection within the past 90 days (regardless of vaccination status):

  • you do not need to get a test 3 to 5 days after travel

If you are travelling domestically within the USA, individual states and territories may have their own quarantine requirements. A full list of local quarantine requirements is available on the CDC website. You must wear a mask on aircraft, trains, buses and at airports.

If you’re not fully vaccinated

Only those with an exception or US Citizens, US Nationals, and US Lawful Permanent Residents will be able to enter the US unvaccinated. 

Proof of vaccination status

The USA will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record and proof of COVID-19 vaccination issued in the Crown Dependencies. Your final vaccine dose must have been administered at least 14 days prior to travel. 

The CDC website lists the forms of acceptable proof of COVID-19 status. 

All forms of COVID-19 status must have a personal identifier, at a minimum including full name and date of birth, that match the information on a passenger’s passport or other travel documents. It must also include the name of the official source issuing the record and the vaccine manufacturer and date(s) of vaccination.
