The while system is messed up; but getting back to normal soon hopefully.
Yeah, we did that to get my kids' passports faster this summer. Felt like a scumbag, but it worked.

We're supposed to go in a couple months but with what looks like increasing cases etc it's kind off stressing me out.

I'm not worried about the getting sick part but the rules around catching while you're there being able to come back etc.

I'd personally cancel it if I could and have enquired about it but I doubt I can without losing a ton of money..
Are there any rules? Iíve yet to see any. Iíve flown probably 20 ish times this year and there are always sick people on the flights.

There's nothing to stop you taking a flight

It's not the flight (although I HATE flying), or getting sick or anything like that. I think many countries still check you on arrival and departure no? Like if you catch covid while there, you're stuck there even if asymptomatic.

I think every country is different. I read that the Domincan still randomly tests (although that could be old, getting a straight answer was tricky) and that you have to stay for 7 days if you test positive, even if asymptomatic.

We've travelled during this as well, but just to the US. We're going since I don't think changing is an option anyway, it just popped into my head the other day. I hadn't really thought much about it then for some reason.

Looks like no testing or vaccines required to travel there. Some random testing happens but you are exempt if you are vaccinated.

Sorry having some last minute anxiety causing questions I just need some clarification on to put my mind at easy. My family (wife, myself and kids aged 10 & 6) are flying to LA and I just want to confirm.

- Any proof of vaccine still needed to fly into the US ? And if Kids are under 18 and are exempt if there are.

- Masks still required in the airport and on the plane ?

Sorry, Iím sure these are all in the thread but the wife has my anxiety dialed up to about 12 at the moment about this.

Not totally sure about vax requirements, but it would’ve been asked for when you checked in. If it wasn’t you should be fine. Customs never asked, even if it was required. It was put on airlines to validate during the check in process.

But I can assure you masks are NOT required in airports or on planes.

See: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...tml#noncitizen for the official USA rules

Over 18s need to be vaccinated to enter the USA, under 18s are exempt. I've gone numerous times and haven't been asked about it for a long time, but I still carry my proof of vax anyway. The online check-in has never asked, even when quarantines were required iirc.

We're heading to Hawaii in a few weeks and my 2-year old is only partially vaccinated... do we still have to produce a negative test within 5 days of landing? According to the CDC website that seems to be the case, is that still the case?

I'm reading something about unvaccinated children needing to take a test within 3-5 days of arrival into the U.S. and quarantine ?

That is something that is technically mentioned on the CDC website and on the attestation form (if your airline asks for one).

But the reality is that a test after arrival (or quarantine) is something that has never been checked for in the U.S.

At check-in they might want to verify that you filled out the form, but there has never been any kind of enforcement after arrival in the U.S.
