The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has announced that effective January 5, 2023, airline passengers traveling from mainland China, Hong Kong, or Macau must provide either a negative COVID test or documentation of COVID recovery in order to travel to the United States. The new requirement will apply to airline passengers two years and older, regardless of nationality and vaccination status – including U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.

This new requirement is in addition to what is currently required to board a flight to the U.S. For more information: International Travel to and from the United States
