NOTICE TO TRAVELERS:

  • New Jersey's travel advisory is no longer in effect. The CDC, however, has recommendations for both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers. Travelers leaving New Jersey should check with the travel destination and transportation carrier to see if there are additional health and safety protocols or requirements. Travelers should also check with their employers, schools, and other entities that may have quarantine policies for individuals returning from travel. Currently, the CDC recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated. For more information, refer to the CDC's guidance for domestic travel.
  • Negative COVID-19 tests are no longer required for air travelers entering the United States as of June 12th, 2022.
  • If you are not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, lawful permanent resident, or immigrant, you must be fully vaccinated to travel to the United States by plane. Limited exceptions apply. For more information, refer to the CDC's guidance for international travel.
  • International travelers should also refer to guidance published by the CDC and check the CDC's COVID-19 travel recommendations by destination.

Airports

Airports are open.

The Department of Health recommends wearing a face mask whenever you have symptoms of COVID-19, tested positive, were recently exposed to someone with COVID-19, or live in a county with elevated or "high" COVID community levels.

For flights, cancellations, or rerouting, please contact your airline directly for the latest information.

For additional domestic travel information, please visit the CDC, and for additional international travel information, please visit travel.state.gov

Bridges and Tunnels

Bridges and tunnels are open.

Cash toll collection has been restored at the Lincoln Tunnel and upper level of the George Washington Bridge. Customers using cash must use a staffed toll lane. Failure to use the designated cash lanes at these facilities will result in a Notice of Violation Enforcement.

Cashless tolling was activated at the Holland Tunnel. Drivers without an E-Z Pass account will have images of their license plate captured by overhead cameras, and a bill for the toll amount will be sent by mail.

There are no changes to the toll operations at the Port Authority's three Staten Island crossings (the Goethals and Bayonne bridges and Outerbridge Crossing) and the George Washington Bridge's Lower Level and Palisades Interstate Parkway toll lanes, which are also permanently cashless.

Discount programs that require in-person administration by toll attendants, such as the carpool discount program, are reinstated at the upper level of the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln Tunnel while those toll booths are staffed.
