Booking with Confidence
COVID-19 Travel FAQs

The U.S. is requiring all air travelers 2 years old and up entering the U.S. to present a negative COVID-19 test result at time of boarding – the timing of which is dictated by vaccination status. Fully vaccinated travelers need proof of vaccination and a negative test result taken no more than 3 days before travel. Not fully vaccinated travelers must present a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 1 day before travel.

POLICY QUESTIONS:

What is the updated policy regarding U.S. Inbound Travel Requirements?

Beginning November 8, fully vaccinated international travelers who want to come to the U.S. can now do so, following the U.S. government’s announcement that it will lift travel restrictions on foreign nationals that have been in place since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s what you need to know about the new U.S. entry requirements:

  • Fully vaccinated foreign nationals will be permitted to enter the U.S. with proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of departure. Unvaccinated foreign nationals will not be able to board a flight to the U.S., unless they meet criteria for one of the exceptions
  • Fully vaccinated U.S. citizens returning from abroad will still be required to show proof of a negative test result within three days of departure.
  • Unvaccinated U.S. citizens must show proof of a negative test within one day of departure to re-enter the U.S. from abroad. Approved test types include COVID-19 viral tests approved by the U.S. government (molecular, nucleic acid amplification [NAAT], RT-PCR, TMA, LAMP, and antigen tests accepted).
  • Children under 18 years of age are exempt from the vaccination requirement. Children between ages 2 and 17 are required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test (under age 2, not required to test).

What is considered fully vaccinated?
Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks (14 days) or more after receiving one dose of a single dose vaccine, two doses of a two-dose vaccine or any combination of a two-dose vaccine (i.e., mix and match) of an approved or authorized for emergency use vaccine by the U.S. FDA and World Health Organization (WHO).

What vaccines are accepted?

The following vaccines are accepted by the U.S. for inbound travel:

  • J&J (also called Janssen)
  • Pfizer-BioNTech
  • Moderna
  • AstraZeneca
  • Covishield
  • BIBP/Sinopharm
  • Sinovac

Are mix and match vaccinations acceptable?

Yes. Mix and match vaccinations are acceptable. Individuals can be considered fully vaccinated ≥ 2 weeks after receipt of any combination of two doses of an FDA approved/authorized or WHO emergency use listed COVID-19 two-dose series and therefore be allowed to enter the U.S.

 


How do I prove my vaccination status?
At time of boarding, inbound U.S. travelers must provide proof of vaccination. This can either be digital or paper and must include at a minimum full name and date of birth matching the traveler’s passport, name of official source issuing the vaccine, vaccine type and date(s) of vaccination.

Are there any additional forms or documentation travelers need to provide or complete as part of entry into the U.S.?
  • All passengers ages 2 and up will need to complete an attestation form, opens in a new window before boarding a flight to the U.S. A parent or other authorized person should attest on behalf of a passenger under 18 years old. An authorized person may attest on behalf of any passenger who is unable to sign their own attestation (e.g., because they are too young, or because of physical or mental impairment).
  • Contact tracing information will be required for all passengers entering the U.S. Delta will collect this information for its passengers on behalf of the CDC.

How do I verify my Health Documentation with Delta FlyReadySM?

Delta is making health documentation verification a breeze with Delta FlyReady – Delta’s digital solution built to automatically verify government-required health documentation and ensure customers are aware of entry requirements in place at their destination. Beginning November 8, travelers on nearly all international routes bound for the U.S. will be able to use Delta FlyReady to directly upload and verify their negative COVID-19 test results and vaccination certificate.

Please note: you must enter your Delta flight confirmation number (not your Delta Vacations confirmation number) when entering the required information.


Who is exempt from proof of vaccination under The Presidential Proclamation and CDC’s Order? Visit the CDC site, opens in a new window to learn more about these categories.
  • Persons on diplomatic or official foreign government travel
  • Children under 18 years of age
  • Participants in certain COVID-19 vaccine trials
  • Persons with medical contraindications to receiving a COVID-19 vaccine
  • Persons issued a humanitarian or emergency exception
  • Persons with valid nonimmigrant visas who are citizens of a country with limited COVID-19 vaccine availability
  • Members of the U.S. Armed Forces or their spouses or children
  • Sea crew members
  • Persons whose entry would be in the U.S. national interest
NOTE: Objections to vaccination based on religious or moral convictions do not qualify for an exception under the Presidential Proclamation and CDC’s Order.

What else should I keep in mind?
  • You may want to bring printed copies of your documents, test results and vaccination status if possible. Digital copies may be accepted, but backup is a good idea.
  • As the U.S. reopens and more travelers return to the skies, wait times at the airport and security checkpoints may be longer than normal. Early arrival is recommended.
  • Travel restrictions are changing frequently. We recommend that you check your destination’s specific requirements, as well as confirming directly with the hotel their policy regarding Covid testing and more.

TESTING QUESTIONS:

What type of test is required?

According to CDC, passengers ages 2 and above entering the United States, or transiting through the United States, must have proof of a negative Coronavirus (COVID-19) test. The timing of the test requirements depends on vaccination status. Fully vaccinated travelers require a negative test result from a test taken within 3 days of departure. Unvaccinated travelers require a negative test taken within 1 day of departure.

The test can be a molecular test, nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), RT-PCR test, LAMP test, or a viral antigen test (including a rapid antigen test). Antibody or serological tests will not be accepted. 

Documentation may be paper or electronic copy and must include the name and contact information for the laboratory or healthcare personnel who performed the test. Test results may be required to be shown again upon landing.

Alternatively, passengers who had a positive COVID-19 test (Recovered passengers) may produce a positive specimen from a test taken within 90 days of departure and a letter from a licensed health care provider or public health official stating that the passenger has been cleared for travel to fulfill the testing requirement (they are still subject to the vaccine requirement as described above).

 

What else has changed about the test requirements?
Most details of the test requirement are unchanged from the current rule. Additional points to note:

  • Children between 2 and 17 who are not fully vaccinated may board with a 3-day negative test if traveling with fully vaccinated parents or guardians.
  • If traveling unaccompanied or if one or more of the parents/guardians are not fully vaccinated, the child must have a one-day negative test.
  • Trips less than 1 or 3 days can use a U.S.-based test to qualify for re-entry, as long as the specimen was taken no more than 1 or 3 days, depending on vaccination status, before the return flight.
  • Connecting flight grace period is capped at 48 hours.

What are the testing time limits for delayed flights?

If the first flight in a passenger’s trip is delayed past the 1-day or 3-day limit of testing due to a situation outside of their control (e.g., delays because of severe weather or aircraft mechanical problem), and that delay is 24 hours or less past the 1-day or 3-day limit for testing, they do not need to be retested. If the delay is more than 24 hours past the 1- day or 3-day limit, then they will need to be retested.

If a connecting flight in a traveler’s trip is delayed past the 1-day or 3-day limit of testing due to a situation outside of their control (e.g., delays because of severe weather or aircraft mechanical problem), and that delay is less than 48 hours past the 1-day or 3-day limit for testing, they do not need to be retested. If the delay is more than 48 hours past the 1-day or 3-day limit, then they will need to be retested.

What is the cost of the test and do travelers have to pay for the test?
Depending on the destination/location, test costs will vary. Most hotels that are offering in-hotel testing are covering the cost or it is included in the package price. For others, the cost will be the responsibility of the traveler.
This information is changing rapidly, so it is advised to check with your hotel directly for their most updated policy on testing.

Are children exempt?
All passengers two years of age and older traveling into the U.S. must provide proof of a negative test.

What if you’ve already had COVID-19?
Recovered passengers may produce a positive specimen from a test taken within 90 days of departure and a letter from a licensed health care provider or public health official stating that the passenger has been cleared for travel to fulfill the testing requirement (they are still subject to the vaccine requirement as described above).

What if you’ve already been vaccinated?
At this time, even if you’ve been vaccinated, you’ll need to provide a negative COVID-19 test before boarding, taken no more than three days prior to departure.

Is a negative antibody test sufficient?
No. A negative test result from a viral test (excludes antibody tests) within three days of your return flight to the U.S. is required. You must bring a paper or electronic proof to the airport. 

What happens if travelers get a positive test?
Travelers are required to quarantine before returning to the U.S.  For travelers flying with Delta, Delta’s Health Acknowledgment (completed at check-in) requires customers to certify that they have not been exposed to, diagnosed with or tested positive for COVID within the past 10 days.

Will there be monetary assistance to help offset the cost of having to quarantine?
Delta Vacations is not offering monetary assistance for those required to quarantine; however, please check with your travel insurance policy to determine if there is any support included. Please contact a Delta Vacations Specialist at 1-800-800-1504 to modify your trip and rebook your return flight. Terms and Conditions apply.

What will travel protection cover?
Coverage will depend on the coverage provided in your purchased travel protection policy. If you have purchased travel protection coverage through Delta Vacations, please click here for more information.

How long do travelers have to quarantine before allowed re-entry to the U.S.?
If you or someone in your booking test positive for COVID-19, you are required to self-isolate for 10 days before returning to the U.S., based on current CDC guidance. Please note that Delta’s Health Acknowledgment (completed at check-in) requires customers to certify that they have not been exposed to, diagnosed with or tested positive for COVID within the past 10 days.

If travelers do not get test results within the set number of days (depending on vaccination status), will they be denied boarding?
If a traveler does not provide documentation of a negative COVID-19 test or recovery, or chooses not to take a test, the airline must deny boarding to the passenger.

Are U.S. territories, like U.S. Virgin islands & Puerto Rico considered international under this new policy?
U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are not considered international travel, and therefore they are exempt from this testing requirement.

How long will these requirements last?
There is no stated end date at this time.

When did the new requirement go into effect?
The requirement for COVID-19 testing for all international arrivals is effective as of January 26, 2021. The Presidential Proclamation and CDC’s Orders regarding inbound U.S. travelers is in effect as of November 8, 2021.
