Important International Travel Updates by CDC

Starting on November 8, foreign national air travelers to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to fly to the United States, with only limited exceptions.

The CDC has determined that for the purposes of entry into the United States, accepted vaccines will include those approved by the FDA, as well as vaccines with an emergency use listing (EUL) from the World Health Organization (WHO). See the State Department’s FAQs and CDC’s FAQs for more details.

COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation/Exemption Requirements

To protect the health and safety of the Bellevue College campus community and the public, the College requires all faculty, staff and students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with an authorized vaccine unless an individual receives an authorized exemption.  

All online and in-person students must complete the vaccination attestation (confirmation) or request an exemption.
