U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - Current Guidance for Travel to the U.S.

May 19, 2021

IAM continues to closely follow all guidance and U.S. entry requirements for those traveling (by air) into the U.S., as the association is very much looking forward to hosting an in-person (with an even stronger virtual component), that is accessible and open to all members. 


At the moment, there is not an approved "vaccine" passport standard, which would permit travelers to show proof of vaccination from a particular country to gain entry into the U.S. That said, the U.S. CDC currently strongly recommends all travelers to the U.S. be "fully vaccinated" (which would include the time period after the second or first shot, depending on the vaccine manufacturer.)


Currently, all persons entering the U.S. from an international destination via plane, (including U.S. citizens and those fully vaccinated), are required to have and present a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 3 days prior travel, OR documentation of recovery from COVID-19 within the past 3 months. Read details on eligible negative tests, along with other current requirements.


If you have any questions or would like to follow up, please contact Bryan Vickers with IAM's Regulatory Affairs team at bvickers@pacellp.com, 703-403-2882. IAM will keep members apprised of developments as they occur, particularly those connected to travel requirements and eligibility.
