Tampa International Airport (TPA) on January 31, 2021.

Traveling for the holidays through Tampa International Airport? Here’s what you need to know.

The transportation mask order has been extended to March 18, 2022. That means all travelers, guests and employees need to wear a face covering on planes and inside airports. If you don’t have a mask, you can get one at the information kiosk on Level 3 of the Main Terminal. Several shops in the airport also sell them.

For those flying into the U.S. from another country, starting today, you’re going to need to prove you don’t have COVID-19.  You must take a test within a day of your flight. You do not need to be vaccinated though.  In fact, you don’t get out of the testing requirement just because you’ve been vaccinated. And yes, this includes children ages 2 and up.

For visitors from other countries, you’ll need to be fully vaccinated, with a few exemptions. Foreign visitors will also need to disclose if they’ve been to any of the restricted countries within the past 2 weeks. These countries include Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.  If they have, they won’t even be able to board the plane.
