JAL has been testing the digital health credential application "VeriFLY" (*1) since the end of April 2021 for safe and seamless travel experience, and full-scale operation began in October for flights from Japan to the U.S.
mainland (excluding flights to Guam and Hawaii).
All travelers entering the U.S. on or after November 8 (U.S. time) will be required to complete vaccination

process will be even smoother.
