Federal Government Launches

The U.S. Departments of Transportation (DOT), Health and Human Services (HHS), Homeland Security (DHS), and State announced the establishment of a new web portal,, where airline passengers can receive updated information on how to ensure a safe and healthy travel experience.

Domestic Travel During COVID-19

The CDC updated its travel guidance for fully vaccinated people, recommending that fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves.

The CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated because travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC’s recommendations for unvaccinated people.

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last dose of the vaccine. Read more here.

International Travel During COVID-19

Updated Information for Travelers

Make sure you understand and follow all airline and destination requirements related to travel, testing, or quarantine, which may differ from U.S. requirements. If you do not follow your destination’s requirements, you may be denied entry and required to return to the United States.

Check the current COVID-19 situation in your destination.

Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19. CDC recommends delaying international travel until you are fully vaccinated.

If you are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine:

  • You should continue to follow CDC’s recommendations for traveling safely and get tested 3-5 days after travel.
  • You do NOT need to get tested before leaving the United States unless your destination requires it.
  • You do NOT need to self-quarantine after arriving in the United States.
