Federal law requires passengers on domestic flights to wear a mask at all times while in the airport and when using public transit, during boarding and deplaning, and for the duration of the flight.
As of November 8, 2021, foreign nationals flying to the United States are required to be fully vaccinated and must show proof of vaccination before boarding a US-bound airplane. Check with your airline for any exceptions.
As of December 6, 2021, before boarding an international flight to the United States, air travelers aged two and older, regardless of nationality or vaccination status, are required to show documentation of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within one day of the flight’s departure.
All travelers, domestic or international, should contact their airline for the latest travel requirements and for their flight status.
