Starting on November 8, non-citizen, non-immigrant air travelers to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to fly to the US, with only limited exceptions. Air travellers must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated and have tested negative for COVID-19 within the last 72 hours.  International seafarers are eligible to travel to the US if they are not fully vaccinated, provided they have a D and C1 (transit) visa, present a negative COVID test within 24 hours of scheduled airline departure, and sign an attestation upon arrival in the US stating that they will take another test within 3 to 5 days. The website Requirements for Air Travelers to the US recognizes seafarers as emergency travelers who do not have timely access to a vaccine.
