New York City is arguably one of the best cities in the world with incredible views and an abundance of places, sites and cuisines to explore. This year, The Big Apple took a hard hit from COVID-19, but has shown it’s resilience and bounced back. 

Thanks to New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, strict lockdown restrictions were put into place and NYC was able to stabilize its positive COVID-19 cases.

Many are looking to travel to the city that never sleeps, but there are key guidelines to know before planning your trip. 

Here are the most updated COVID-19 entry requirements for those traveling to NYC.

Currently, travelers coming from Brazil, China, Iran, Ireland, the UK and the EU are not allowed to enter NYC.
