Covid Travel Info

Kidscreen has put in place Covid protocols for delegates’ protection at the event.  You can see those here.  

Now that the US has lifted travel restrictions for fully vaccinated international visitors, here’s some useful info about entering the country on your way to Kidscreen Summit.

Who is eligible to travel to the US?
Fully vaccinated travellers can now enter the US if they can show proof of vaccination and the results of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of travel.

Which vaccines are accepted?
Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, as well as any vaccines that have been cleared for emergency use by the World Health Organization—AstraZeneca, Covaxin, Covishield, BIBP/Sinopharm and Sinovac.

Who is considered to be fully vaccinated?
Anyone who has received either the first dose of a single-dose vaccine or the second dose of a two-dose vaccine 14 days before departing for the US. The CDC also considers those who have received the second dose of a mix-and-match combination of accepted vaccines to be fully vaccinated, as long as the doses have been given at least 17 days apart.

What documentation is required as proof of vaccination?
Both printed and digital records of vaccination will be accepted. And if you do not have your original record, a photocopy or photo is fine. These documents must include your full name and at least one other identifier, such as your date of birth, or the name of the agency or provider that has issued the vaccine. It must also include the name of the vaccine manufacturer and the dates of vaccination.

Onsite PCR Testing for the Return Trip
For travellers flying home to non-US destinations, you must also present a negative COVID-19 test result taken within three days of boarding your return flight. For your convenience, our testing facility at the event will be offering PCR tests for $140, with results delivered within 48 hours. No appointment required!
