Visiting Chicago

Chicago is more than just a big city. Besides its striking downtown, which includes some of the tallest buildings in the world, Chicago has a distinctive coastline, hundreds of vibrant parks and more than 200 unique neighborhoods, and a thriving arts, culture, and food scene. It's this truly distinctive mix of global attractions and local charm that make this city second to none. Visit the Chicago visitors’ bureau’s AERA23 website for information on attractions, tours, museums, dining, getting around, and more. AERA has also curated a list of special cultural destinations that may be of interest to #AERA23 attendees. View lists of local houses of worship and hospitals and clinics.

According to the U.S. State Department, all international 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. PLEASE NOTE:  As an added measure of safety, AERA is requiring that all attendees have received at least ONE booster dose (if eligible) to attend the 2023 AERA Annual Meeting. 

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

Travelers who are flying from China, Hong Kong, or Macau, or have been in any of these areas in the past 10 days and are flying from one of these airports: Incheon International Airport in Seoul, Republic of Korea, Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada, or Vancouver International Airport in Canada: Before boarding a flight to the United States, you are required to show a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 2 days before travel. There is also an option for people who have documented recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days. Children under 2 years old do not need to test. Learn more about these requirements.

If traveling from locations where the U.S. does not require proof of a negative COVID-19 test result before travel:

  • Consider getting tested with a viral test as close to the time of departure as possible (no more than 3 days) before travel.
