Before going to Djibouti, make sure you are fully vaccinated and up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines.


Your risk of infection and transmission continues even after you have received all of your COVID-19 immunizations.

Anyone over the age of two should wear a well-fitting face mask in public places. While in Djibouti, make sure you follow all local norms and regulations.

Plan ahead of time to guarantee a smooth exit from the United States:


Wear a mask and provide proof of immunisation, testing, or quarantine, if requested by the airline or destination.

Foreign countries' criteria may differ from those of the United States. If you do not match the standards of your destination, you may be denied entrance and compelled to return to the United States.

Testing for COVID-19


If you are unvaccinated and have not had your COVID-19 immunizations, have a virus test as soon as possible (no more than three days) before your trip.

Do not go if...

Even if you have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 90 days or have received all of your COVID-19 immunizations, your condition has worsened.


COVID-19 was detected in your blood. Before travelling, wait at least 10 days from the commencement of your symptoms, or until a positive test is received.

Before you get your COVID-19 test results

Isolating yourself because you were in contact with someone who had COVID-19 is not an option for you.


Avoid travelling for at least 5 days after having close contact with someone who has COVID-19. You should not travel within 10 days of your most recent exposure.

If possible, avoid travelling between the sixth and tenth days after your previous exposure.

You should perform a test at least five days after your last sexual interaction. Before flying, be sure you have no symptoms and a negative test result. If you have not been tested, do not travel for at least 10 days after your last close contact with someone who has COVID-19.


On days 6 through 10 of your trip, you should wear a well-fitting mask while travelling with others. You should avoid travelling if you are unable to wear a mask on days 6 through 10.

If your test results are positive while you are gone, your return to the United States should be postponed. Quarantine may be required for your travelling companions.

However, quarantine is not advised if you have had intimate contact with someone infected with COVID-19...


The test should be performed five days after your last close contact. Before flying, be sure you have no symptoms and a negative test result.

If you have had COVID-19 validated within the last 90 days, you do not need to be tested, but you must still follow all other regulations (including if you develop COVID-19 symptoms).

When travelling with others, you should wear a face mask if it has been less than 10 days since your previous exposure. You should not travel for the entire 10-day period if you are unable to wear a face mask.

Take care of yourself and others while travelling

When you get to your destination, be sure you follow all guidelines and procedures. Anyone over the age of two should wear a well-fitting face mask in public places.

In locations with a high frequency of COVID-19, a well-fitting mask should be considered for outdoor activities that require close contact with people who are unvaccinated or are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines.

For frequent hand washing, hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol are advised. To prepare for your journey to the United States, plan and follow all regulations in place.

Mandatory COVID-19 checkup for all travellers/returning travellers

Before you can fly into the United States, you must have all of the following documents: 

A negative COVID-19 test result attained within less than one day before departure is essential.

Children under the age of two do not need to be screened for any diseases. People who have recovered from COVID-19 within the last 90 days are also eligible to apply. Learn about the preceding circumstances.

Contact information 

All passengers going to the United States must provide their contact information to the airlines before boarding. This is an expansion of an already-in-place travel plan to identify and contact people in the United States who may have been exposed to a communicable disease such as COVID-19. To keep the general public safe, federal, state, and municipal health officials in the United States will be able to convey information about passengers' health status.

Immediate check-in following departure

There's a chance. COVID-19 met you on one of your numerous adventures, whether by air, land, or sea. Even if you appear to be healthy and have no symptoms, the virus can spread. As a result, the CDC suggests the following:

If you haven't already, please obtain your COVID-19 vaccines as soon as possible. In addition to the instructions given above, stay at home and self-quarantine for five days after your vacation.

For all travellers 

There is no need for a follow-up test 3–5 days after your return if you have recently recovered from a verified COVID-19 infection (regardless of immunization status). When your trip is complete, you don't even have to quarantine yourself. If you encounter COVID-19 symptoms after travelling, a healthcare expert can make testing recommendations.
