All beneficiaries 6 months of age and older are now required to have a certificate confirming that they received their COVID-19 vaccinations both prior to travel to the United States and upon arrival, unless they are eligible for an exemption.
Previously, beneficiaries under the age of 5 were eligible for an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement because the vaccine was not approved or licensed for use in this age group.
• Prior to traveling to the United States: To obtain a travel permit under the Uniting for Ukraine program, all beneficiaries 6 months of age or older must provide a certificate confirming that they have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, if only they are not exempt.
• Upon arrival in the United States, all children 6 months of age and older must have a certificate stating that they have received or will complete their COVID-19 vaccination series (in other words, they will be fully vaccinated) within 90 days of arrival or within 90 days after reaching age suitable for vaccination according to current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, unless they qualify for an exemption. Attestation must be completed in the USCIS online account. Beneficiaries are responsible for vaccinations.
