In effort to help slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the U.S. government has temporarily suspended entry for certain travelers into the United States.
Temporary Travel Restrictions
Anybody, with the exception of U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents, and immediate family members, who has been in the following countries during the past 14 days may not enter the United States at this time:
- United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland)
- Republic of Ireland

Additionally, the U.S. has reached agreements with both Canada and Mexico to temporarily limit all non-essential travel, including leisure travel, across land borders. Air travel between the United States and Canada and Mexico is allowed.
Mandatory Testing Requirement
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will require all air passengers to present a negative COVID-19 test result before entering the United States.
Air passengers will be required to get a viral test within the three days before their flight departs to the United States and provide written documentation of their laboratory test to the airline.
Airlines must confirm the negative test result for all passengers or documentation of recovery before they board.
If a passenger does not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery, or chooses not to take a test, the airline must deny boarding to the passenger.
Mandatory Mask Requirement
All travelers shall be required to comply with recommended CDC guidelines and wear masks in airports, commercial aircraft, trains, public maritime vessels, intercity bus services, and other modes of public transportation.
Mandatory Quarantine Requirement
Travelers entering the United States from a foreign country shall be required to comply with recommended CDC guidelines regarding periods of self-quarantine or self-isolation. For more information, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel resources page here.
