However, it is important to note that, unvaccinated minors or dependent adults who are traveling with fully vaccinated travelers must still quarantine for 14 days and follow all testing requirements. They are not required to stay at a government-authorized hotel.

- accepted vaccines include Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson).
