Frequently Asked Questions 

All attendees and exhibitors will need to show proof of vaccination in order to attend CES in Las Vegas.  Find answers to frequently asked questions below. This page will be updated on a regular basis. 


CES will require all in-person attendees to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. CES will be working with a third-party platform to verify vaccine information. 

U.S.-based attendees can use CLEAR to share proof of vaccination. CLEAR’s free mobile app and Health Pass feature provides a simple and secure way for this information to be shared. Additional guidance on how to use the CLEAR Health Pass to gain admittance to CES will be provided in the coming weeks.  

For international attendees, CTA will also work with a third-party platform, and we will share further instruction to submit proof of vaccination in October. CES will accept all vaccines approved by the FDA or WHO or all vaccines approved by the FDA or WHO for emergency use against COVID. 

Attendees will download the CLEAR app from the iOS or Android app store, upload their CDC card or proof of vaccination to their Health Pass within CLEAR and will present the QR code to collect their badge at CES. We will provide detailed instructions in the coming weeks. CES will have a different process for those vaccinated outside of the U.S. and will make that information available in October. Due to the health screening procedures for CES 2022, group badge pick up will not be available for CES 2022. Each person must present a government-issued photo ID to pick up badge.

Per the CDC, people are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after their second dose of multi-dose vaccines and 14 days after the single-dose vaccines. CES will strictly enforce this schedule.

CES will accept all vaccines approved by the FDA or WHO or approved by the FDA or WHO for emergency use against COVID. A list of approved vaccines can be found here.

At this time, the CDC has yet to issue formal guidance on boosters and many countries will implement their own policies regarding booster shots. CES is closely monitoring the situation, but at this time a booster shot is not required to attend CES.  

CES will not offer testing for admittance into the show. We will provide information as to local testing sites as we get closer to the show. 

CES continues to consult with medical professionals to determine how to accept proof of antibodies. More information will be provided once we define the process for proof of antibodies. We expect to share this information later in October.
