The Administration will end the COVID-19 vaccine requirements for international air travelers at the end of the day on May 11. This means starting May 12, noncitizen nonimmigrant air passengers will no longer need to show proof of being fully vaccinated with an accepted COVID-19 vaccine to board a flight to the United States. For more information see the update on change to U.S. Travel Policy requiring COVID-19 vaccination for nonimmigrant travel.
