The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed today, May 12, 2023, that noncitizen nonimmigrant air passengers no longer need proof of being fully vaccinated with an accepted COVID-19 vaccine to board a flight to the United States.

An announcement of the termination of this U.S. government's Amended Order was published in the Federal Register

Additionally, the CDC today published revised face mask guidance for air travelers.

The CDC says when people wear high-quality face masks, they protect themselves and those around them and help keep travel safer.

These CDC announcements should increase airport passenger activity, which is running about 95% of what the U.S. TSA screened in 2019.
