AIBU?

Shameless request - New York!

Posting for traffic, asking for forgiveness in advance.

DH and I are going to New York for a late honeymoon (we got married earlier this year) in October, the week before half term.

We'll be there for 4 nights flying back on the 5th day.

I'm beyond excited but have no idea about season there right now or how to structure the sight seeing. Aargh, just realised will need to look at Covid stuff too. DH is vaccinated, I'm not.

Well covid vaccination status is your priority as you currently cannot enter the country without being vaccinated. I believe there are some waivers but these would be very hard to get.

You have to have been fully vaccinated 14 days BEFORE travel to the US unless you are medically exempt (the rules for being medically exempt in the US are very strict).

This is your priority as you will be denied boarding.

Yes you need to be vaccinated. And you don't have time now I hope you can rearrange things.
When you do take plenty of money! It is ridiculously expensive.

You won’t have time to have two vaccines before you go so you will need a medical exemption.

Yes your vaccination status is going to be a pretty serious issue here. If they didn’t waive it for Djokovic they are unlikely to waive it for you…

You need to be FULLY vaccinated 14 days before your flight. For this, you need 2 doses, 4 weeks apart.

Most likely outcome: you're not going to New York.

What is your AIBU? I would vote YABU for considering international travel without having researched vaccination requirements but you haven't enabled voting.

unless you are a US citizen or things change in the next few weeks your not going to new york or the USA, vaccine status gets checked before you can check in for your flight and if your not vaccinated then its a no go

Why did you book a trip without looking at the country entry requirements? You need to be fully vaccinated, which you don't have time to do anymore..

You are not going to New York in October if you are not vaccinated.

Is there a reason why you’re not vaccinated? If you have a medical contradiction and can get that certified by a doctor, there is an exemption. The rest of the exemptions I doubt would apply to your honeymoon since it’s all stuff like diplomatic travel or military spouse. I really hope you haven’t booked anything non refundable!!

How will you get fully vaccinated before you go? Aren’t they really strict on it?

Please tell us that you haven’t booked this yet so that you have time to get vaccinated, or change destination

Thank you for the info guys. We haven't booked the trip yet so nothing lost there.

Vaccinations weren't at the forefront of my mind so I'm not particularly distressed, we've had a busy year.

We'll look at somewhere else and I'll also look at getting vaccinated, or not. The world is a big place =)

Why on earth didn't you check the COVID requirements before you booked it? I hope you can reschedule, or ultimately what you've done is wasted a load of money

Even Canada has dropped vaccine requirement so pressure is building on USA to do the same. Hope they do soon.

We are checking requirements. Iceland is our next destination. We're not too fussed with the location, we'll happily go anywhere.

I'll sort the rest.

Thank you for the responses, guess NY will be for Christmas 😊
