Can international archers attend The Vegas Shoot in 2022?

(Last updated on December 17 2021.)


The Vegas Shoot is back to its normal format in 2022. It will be a festival of archery with a mix of shooters from across the USA and, hopefully, around the globe.

That said, the pandemic is ongoing and there are still changing travel restrictions, making it unclear for some whether it’s possible to attend the tournament.


So, can international archers compete at the Vegas Shoot in 2022?


Short answer: yes, mostly… but not without meeting a few requirements.


  • All air passengers, regardless of vaccination status, must arrive with a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than one day before travel to the United States.

  • All international travelers must be fully vaccinated to enter the United States.

  • Archers must still check if they require a visa, ESTA or waiver to enter the United States.


Anybody who requires help with supporting documentation should get in touch with organizers as soon as possible. Processing late requests is likely to prove difficult.


Travelers who are not United States citizens who have visited Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa or Zimbabwe in the 14 days before departure will not be allowed to enter the United States.


The Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States is reviewing travel restrictions on a daily basis.


Should any of this information change, we’ll do our best to update it here and inform participants who are already registered.


The Vegas Shoot will comply with all COVID-19 protocols put in place by the City of Las Vegas and the State of Nevada. The latest information can be found on the Vegas Smart website.
