If you are travelling to the US from abroad
, as per US law, you will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-19 vaccination status before you board your flight to the US. Only those with an exception or US Citizens, US Nationals, and US Lawful Permanent Residents will be able to enter the US unvaccinated.
Effective from 12 June 2022, the CDC no longer require pre-departure COVID-19 testing for USA-bound air travellers.
Upon arrival, fully vaccinated travellers:
- do not have to quarantine
- are recommended to take a viral test within 3 to 5 days of arrival in the US
If you have recovered from a documented COVID-19 infection within the past 90 days (regardless of vaccination status) you do not need to get a test 3 to 5 days after travel.
There are new requirements for air passengers travelling to the United States from China, Hong Kong, or Macau, and those traveling from Seoul, Toronto, and Vancouver who have been in China, Hong Kong, or Macau in the past 10 days. These passengers, regardless of citizenship or vaccination status, are required to show a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 2 days before their flight departs. Those who had COVID-19 in the 90 days before their travel to the United States can instead show documentation of recovery from COVID-19.
If flying to Miami from another US state
, check if your airline requires any testing, vaccination, or other documents prior to travelling.
Wearing a mask on aircraft, trains, buses and at airports is still recommended by the CDC. Inside the Miami Beach Convention Centre, masks are now optional but still encouraged, as per local public health mandates.
Full requirements can be found on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
and US Embassy websites
. It is your responsibility to check these websites and with your airline for the most up-to-date information on travel restrictions before travelling.
