MANILA — The United States Embassy on Monday clarified that travelers are not required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter their country.
"The United States does not require vaccination against COVID-19 as a condition of entry," US Embassy Press Attaché Heather Fabrikant said.
The Embassy issued the response after reporters sought comment on information circulating that travelers inoculated with China-made Sinovac vaccines have allegedly been denied entry to the US.
Fabrikant said all air passengers 2-years old and above entering the US, including US citizens and legal permanent residents must only present certain documents.
"[They] must present a negative COVID-19 test, taken within three (3) calendar days of departure, or proof of recovery from the virus within the last 90 days," she said.
