High Degree of Caution

Latest Travel Alert

Citizens should exercise caution in any decisions about international travel, taking account of their overall health, their vaccine status, and the risk of testing positive for COVID-19 while abroad. Anyone considering travelling abroad should be aware that restrictions are subject to change at short notice, and additional restrictions may be imposed by the country of your destination, including during your visit.

Travel to the United States

All passengers to the United States are required to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (booster dose not required). Only limited exceptions apply to this requirement.

Those planning to travel are advised to monitor the websites of  US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for updates and to consult your travel provider to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet the requirements for travel to the US.

Proof of vaccination status

The US government requires that the proof of vaccination status shows that you have been fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine approved by the World Health Organisation or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The US accepts the EU Digital COVID Certificate as proof of vaccination. The UK’s proof of COVID-19 vaccination is also accepted. Details on other forms of accepted proof of vaccination status can be found on the CDC website.

If you are not fully vaccinated:

Persons who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 who wish to travel to the US must either meet the US government’s criteria for an exception, e.g. children under the age of 18 or persons on official government travel, or receive a waiver from the CDC to travel to the US.

Unvaccinated children traveling alone or with unvaccinated adults will need to show a negative result from a test taken within one calendar day of departure.

Get travel and medical insurance

Before travelling, the Department strongly recommends that you obtain comprehensive travel insurance which will cover all overseas medical costs, including medical repatriation/evacuation, repatriation of remains and legal costs. You should check any exclusions and, in particular, that your policy covers you for the activities you want to undertake.
