Beginning November 8, 2021, F-1 and J-1 nonimmigrant student visa holders are required to show proof of being fully vaccinated in accordance with CDC guidance before flying to the United States.
Individuals who completed a primary vaccine series outside the United States and received FDA-approved, FDA-authorized, or WHO-emergency use listing COVID-19 vaccines as a series or mixed dose regimen are considered fully vaccinated as per CDC guidance. An individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or the first dose of the one-dose vaccine. If you are vaccinated and have not shared your record with University Health Services, upload your vaccine record in MyUHS.
A negative viral COVID-19 test result is also required before flying to the United States. Fully vaccinated travelers must have a negative test within three days of travel.
