The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has announced that effective January 5, 2023, airline passengers traveling from mainland China, Hong Kong, or Macau must provide either a negative COVID test or documentation of COVID recovery in order to travel to the United States. The new requirement will apply to airline passengers two years and older, regardless of nationality and vaccination status – including U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.
- A revised version of the existing policy authorizing interview waivers for certain F and J visa applicants will be extended to December 31, 2023.
- Through that same date, U.S. consulates will have the authority to continue to waive the in-person interview requirement for foreign nationals applying for any type of nonimmigrant visa in the same classification, where the prior visa has expired within 48 months.
If you plan to leave and re-enter the United States, be sure to review U.S. and U-M COVID-19 Policies: Pre- and Post- Arrival Information, as well as Re-entry to the U.S.
