End of US Covid Travel Requirements

By Nita Nicole Upadhye

Table of Contents

With effect from May 11, 2023, COVID travel requirements affecting nonimmigrant travelers to the US will end.

Nonimmigrant travelers crossing US land borders from Mexico and Canada and international air travelers to the USA now no longer have to show proof of Covid vaccinations to enter the US.

The change impacts all nonimmigrant travelers arriving into the US via air, land ports and ferry terminals. This means all foreign nationals are now permitted to board flights to the US and to enter the United States by land from Canada or Mexico, regardless of whether they are fully vaccinated or not.

The new rules follow the official end of US COVID-19 public health travel requirements.

However, the COVID-related requirements on Green Card applicants and those applying to adjust their status remain unchanged; proof of COVID vaccinations or a valid exemption still have to be provided as part of the medical examination.
