Important resource for international travelers

If you're traveling to Boston from outside the U.S. and are unsure if you're eligible to board an international flight, we recommend taking a short travel assessment developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Based on your answers about your COVID-19 vaccine history, the assessment can tell you whether or not you will be able to board a flight to the U.S. and it will also provide details on the documentation you need to present to your airline before boarding.
