Yikes! Sounds like everyone’s worst nightmare right? As more and more Americans become vaccinated, the travel industry is beginning to pick up again and more and more people are starting to vacation and vacation abroad. But what happens if you travel abroad and develop symptoms or test positive?

First, the CDC recommends only traveling abroad once you are fully vaccinated. However, if you must travel internationally and have not been vaccinated as yet, there are travel rules and recommendations from the CDC.

All air passengers coming back to the United States are required to have a negative Covid-19 viral test no more than 3 days before travel or documentation of recovery from Covid-19 in the past 3 months before they board a flight to the U.S. The same applies for those are fully vaccinated as well.
