REQUIREMENT FOR PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION FOR NONCITIZEN, NONIMMIGRANT AIR PASSENGERS
Revision of a currently approved collection   No
Emergency 06/13/2022
Approved with change 06/13/2022

OIRA approves the emergency package revising a currently approved collection (0920-1318) submitted in this email chain, which removes the test-to-enter requirement, but leaves in place the COVID-19 vaccination attestation requirement. The collection is approved with change, which occurred during review. The agency made several clarifications throughout the documentation regarding eligibility and form use. While OIRA is approving all forms submitted in the package (with the noted changes), OIRA notes that CDC is continuing to use a legacy system for its compliance checks, which may have been better suited to the previous policy requiring both a COVID-19 test (or proof of recovery from a recent COVID-19 infection) AND an FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine. OIRA requests that CDC consider how it can better operationalize a vaccine compliance check and submit a revision to the legacy process in the coming weeks. This revision will reflect lessons learned as the agency begins to work with the vaccine-only travel requirement.

The goal of this information collection is to ensure that, consistent with the terms of the Amended Order Under the Presidential Proclamation titled Advancing Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the COVID-19 Pandemic and CDC’s Order Implementing Proclamation on Advancing Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the COVID-19 Pandemic, public health authorities can confirm that non-U.S Citizen, non-U.S. Immigrant passengers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before boarding a plane to the United States. The intended use of the information is to confirm that noncitizen, nonimmigrant passengers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This confirmation will help to prevent further introduction, transmission, and spread of the virus into the United States.
On June 10, 2022, CDC announced that the Order requiring persons to show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States, will be rescinded, effective on June 12, 2022. Beginning at 12:01AM ET on June 12, 2022, air passengers will not need to get tested and show a negative COVID-19 test result, or show documentation of recovery from COVID-19, prior to boarding a flight to the U.S. CDC cannot reasonably comply with the normal clearance given the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic. After taking into account changing circumstances, including the widespread uptake of highly effective COVID-19 vaccines and accompanying vaccine- and infection-induced immunity, as well as the availability of effective therapeutics, CDC is now focused on preventing medically significant disease, hospitalizations, and deaths. Accordingly, CDC has determined that it is not currently necessary to leave the Order in place to prevent introduction of currently circulating SARS-CoV-2 into the United States.
