COVID vaccination requirements for all international travelers will be eliminated with end of the COVID public health emergency.

All nonimmigrant travelers entering US after May 11th via all ports – land, air or sea – will no longer be required to document proof of a WHO acceptable COVID vaccine. In a May 1, 2023 statement, the Biden administration announced that “the Administration will end the COVID-19 vaccine requirements for Federal employees, Federal contractors, and international air travelers effective 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on May 12, 2023, at the end of the same day that the COVID-19 public health emergency ends.

The U.S.-Canada-Mexico land border COVID restrictions will also cease to have effect as of 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on May 12, 2023, under a Federal Register Notice to be published on May 10, 2023.
