A CDC Order, which took effect November 8, 2021, requires all non-immigrant, non-citizen air travelers to the United States to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to the United States.

 

Travelers should monitor the State Department and CDC websites for the latest guidance on international travel and entry into the United States:

Networking Event 

No visit to Memphis, TN will be complete without a tour at Graceland. 
 

Graceland, home to the King of the Rock – Elvis Presley. If you are an Elvis fan, you don’t need more persuasion to visit Graceland. If you are not an Elvis fan, here are a few reasons why you should visit:

  • It is the second most visited private resident in the US (the first being the White House, which now requires tour submission via your Member of Congress for Americans, or via your embassy for non-Americans). 

  • It is not just a house – admission includes Presley Automobile Museum, ICONS: The Influence of Elvis Presley Exhibit, Fashion King Exhibit, Private Presley: Elvis in the Army Exhibit, Elvis’ Tupelo Exhibit, The Fair Grounds gaming center, Elvis’s personal airplanes and more. 

  • To travel back in time to 1977 – Graceland is not a movie set or a reproduction of the Elvis era; Graceland is the Elvis era, diligently preserved over time.

  • To legally write your name on a US National Historic Landmark – bring a sharpie!

  • Since you ain’t an Elvis fan, you might as well learn the story of Elvis Presley, from his humble beginnings to becoming one of the biggest international rock stars.
