California has no travel restrictions or requirements at this time. Help keep California open and our communities healthy by following CDC travel guidelines.

Current travel recommendations

Whether your travel is domestic or international, follow CDC travel guidelines for testing, masking, and quarantine:

  • Delay travel until you’re fully vaccinated.
  • If you’re not fully vaccinated, but choose to travel, get tested before and after.
  • No matter your vaccination status, wear a mask indoors while on public transportation or in a transportation hub.
  • Wearing a mask outdoors while traveling is no longer required, but still recommended for unvaccinated individuals.
  • Whether you’re vaccinated or not, get tested 3-5 days after returning to California.

Cruise ships

If you’re planning travel on a cruise ship, get vaccinated. The state is recommending that 95% of crew and passengers on cruise ships be vaccinated before docking at ports in California.
