COVID-19 Requirements for International Travelers Entering the US

Key Takeaways

Introduction

We have provided the COVID-19 vaccination and testing requirements for international travelers (noncitizens and nonimmigrants) entering the United States from Japan or foreign countries. These requirements are not only specific to travelers from Japan, but they apply to all air travelers (noncitizens and nonimmigrants) entering the US from foreign countries. While this research focused on the requirements for both adults and 10-year-olds, the required data for 10-year-olds is mostly available in terms of an age range (i.e. under-18 children and 2-17 years.)

Research Strategy

To provide the COVID-19 requirements for international travelers entering the US, we used official government sources such as the CDC website, the US Embassy in Japan, The Bureau of Consular Affairs, and other government sources to provide the requested information. While we found the COVID-19 requirements for international travelers entering the US, these requirements are not only specific to travelers from Japan, but they apply to all air travelers (noncitizens and nonimmigrants) entering the US from foreign countries. While this research focused on the requirements for both adults and 10-year-olds, the required data for 10-year-olds is mostly available in terms of an age range (i.e., under-18 children and 2-17 years.)
