If only one dose of a two-dose vaccine has been administered without proof of the previous infection, travelers will not be considered fully vaccinated but are exempt from pre-departure testing requirements. These travelers must still undergo testing 3-5 days after arrival. Foreign travelers with only one dose will require an essential reason to enter.
