International travel requirements and recommendations change as new variants of COVID-19 emerge.
As of December 6, all air passengers, regardless of vaccination status, must show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 1 day before travel to the United States. Monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for the most recent guidance regarding travel requirements and recommendations.
RIT advises against traveling outside the U.S., unless it is critically important. There may be an increased risk of being stuck or delayed if the U.S. adds more entry restrictions.
International travelers should also have a plan in case you get stuck outside the U.S., or you experience a delay of weeks or months. In addition, there may be new entry requirements going to your home country. Please check in advance for the latest rules to enter your country.
Acceptable COVID-19 Vaccinations
RIT's acceptable vaccines include those approved for use in the U.S., accepted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or approved by the World Health Organization. These are currently the same as the U.S. entry requirements.
