COVID-19 Vaccine Will No Longer Be Required for Non-US Travelers Entering via Land and Sea Ports of Entry

May 2, 2023

The United States’ nationwide public health emergency, declared in January 2020 amid the early spread of COVID-19, is set to expire on May 11, 2023.

On May 1, 2023, the Department of Homeland Security announced that, beginning May 12, 2023, in alignment with the end of the public health emergency, DHS will no longer require non-US travelers entering the United States via land ports of entry and ferry terminals to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide related proof of vaccination upon request.

The lifting of these Title 19 vaccination requirements for land- and sea- entrants also coincides with the termination of the Presidential Proclamation on air travel  which imposed COVID-19 vaccine requirements on non-US air travelers to the United States.
