The United States Embassy in Trinidad and Tobago has clarified whether a U.S.-approved COVID-19 vaccine is required for those wishing to travel to the United States—it is not required at this time.
According to a brief statement issued in its social media pages, only a negative PCR test is required at this time, but the Embassy does indicate that the current requirements could possibly change in the future, given the dynamic situation that surrounds the COVID-19 pandemic.
The full statement from the U.S. Embassy, follows…
For those asking: Is the United States only allowing entry to people who have been vaccinated by U.S.-approved vaccines?
“As of today, June 1, 2021, the United States does not have any vaccine requirements for entry. The only federal requirement is a negative PCR test that was administered within 72 hours of arrival. Please also check the public health agencies of the state that you are entering to see if there are any additional quarantine or entry requirements. However, at this time, you are not required to get a vaccine to travel to the United States.
Please keep in mind this information could change in the future. We recommend you follow our social media pages (facebook.com/ttusa) and check our website (tt.usembassy.gov), to get the most up-to-date travel information.
