Immigration News

The Centers for Disease Control in April clarified that noncitizen children under 18 who are non-immigrants traveling from foreign countries to the U.S. are not currently required to show proof of vacation from Covid-19. The order takes into account the global availability of the vaccine and the potential difficulty posed to families traveling together.

However, children ages 2 – 17 unable to present proof of vaccination must present a completed “Covered Individual Attestation” to airlines before embarking on an aircraft destined for the U.S. Noncitizen nonimmigrant children between these ages without proof of vaccination will be required to attest (or have a parent or guardian attest on their behalf) to arrange to get a post-arrival viral test and self-isolate if the test result is positive or if the child develops Covid-19 symptoms.
