Re: USA Seattle Summer Holiday Travel with my spouse and son (non US citizens)

Hello,

We have recently traveled to the US, and my husband is EU (I am US/kids are US/EU). We were required to show a copy of our marriage license to establish our relationship, in order to board/enter as per the presidential proclamation from Jan 2021 (excerpted in part below). We were not asked about the purpose of our trip.

I don't know whether partners would be allowed per se, but if your child is US, then yes, your partner could enter. I assume you would then need to bring the child's birth certificate as proof.


It is important to bring proof to establish the relationships required for entry, this was not made clear when we left but luckily we had the documentation on hand. Even then, you might expect some secondary screening upon arrival.


All the best.
