The 4 requirements to enter the United States in
The United States has weathered the current omicron wave with minimal disruption: schools and businesses remained mostly open. As the country emerges from the omicron wave, our path forward lies in maintaining and continuing to improve the many tools we now have to protect ourselves and our loved ones, from vaccines, tests, treatments, masks and more.
To ensure that people remain protected, the U.S. government will continue to use advance purchase agreements where appropriate and work closely with vaccine manufacturers to produce vaccines quickly and safely. Fully supporting this initiative to expand domestic vaccine manufacturing will require additional resources from Congress. In addition, we will maintain a network of tens of thousands of sites to ship vaccines to the American people whenever this is needed.
HHS will continue its work to equip Americans with the tools to identify misinformation and invest in long-term efforts to build resilience against health misinformation.

Which countries can I travel to without vaccination?
We travel more and more and for different reasons: tourism, work, business, humanitarian cooperation, and sometimes we travel to very distant places. In all these situations, we must take a series of precautions to protect our health.
In the same way that we organize details relating to transportation and stay, it should also be standard practice to take the necessary health measures to reduce the risks associated with travel, by consulting specialized health professionals at international vaccination centers and health centers.
If your destination is a tropical or subtropical country with endemic malaria, you should be aware that malaria is a serious disease transmitted by a mosquito (Anopheles) that injects the malaria parasite into the blood when it bites.
Although there are four species of the malaria parasite that can infect humans and produce the disease (Plasmodium falciparum, P. malariae, P. vivax and P. ovale), it is only P. falciparum that is potentially life-threatening. There is a real risk that anyone of any age can contract this disease.
