All travellers entering the United States need a passport upon arrival (regardless of their country of citizenship). International travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the country.


While no specific vaccinations are required, we recommend that your routine vaccinations are up to date and that you visit a local travel health clinic or doctor for advice prior to the trip.


If you are traveling through immigration and customs, all prescription medications should be in their original containers with doctor’s prescription printed on the container. It is advised to travel with no more than personal use quantities, a rule of thumb is no more than a 90-day supply.


The Women's Travel Club recommends travelers to be fully vaccinated against COVID. Some countries will require COVID vaccination to enter, it is the traveler's resposibility to insure they meet all requirements.
