Vaccination Entry Requirement

All attendees are required to show valid proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 in order to enter the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. In order to do so, all players, fans, staff, volunteers and vendors must obtain a Digital Vaccine Card from CLEAR and show each day on-site at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

The CLEAR app is available (for United States and Canadian Residents 18+ years of age) in the App Store (iPhone) and Google Play Store (Android), and you will need to enroll in a free CLEAR account to upload your proof of vaccination. These initial steps only need to be taken once.  Those who are 17 years of age and younger and not a resident of the United States and Canada will need to go through an alternate screening process on-site at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden and show proof of vaccination using their original CDC documentation.

Enroll and complete your CLEAR Digital Vaccine Card. Here’s how:

  1. Download the free CLEAR Mobile App on your cell phone and press on the blue Digital Vaccine Card tile in the CLEAR Mobile App.
  2. Begin by accepting the terms and uploading a photo of a government-issued ID into the mobile app. Then snap a quick selfie to confirm your identity.
  3. Search for your vaccine provider from the list and enter your vaccination record. You can also take a photo of your CDC Vaccination Card.
  4. Next create an account in the CLEAR Mobile App to secure your account.
  5. Once you have provided a photo, uploaded you government issued ID, and provided proof of vaccination you have completed your Digital Vaccine Card.

Please note, this process must be completed by all patrons before coming on-site for Nationals. 

Issues with installing the CLEAR App on your cell phone?
Please contact your cell phone provider or a technical resource. (Example: Best Buy Geek Squad, Apple Genius Bar, AT&T/Verizon/T-Mobile Support)

Issues navigating/obtaining a Digital Vaccine Card on the CLEAR App?

The requirement will remain in place until state and local restrictions related to masks and social distancing are lifted. We will continue to enforce this policy following recommendations of health authorities and in keeping with State of California and Riverside County directives.

Children are subject to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden Vaccination Entry Requirement. Children will be required to show full proof of vaccination.

A person is considered “fully vaccinated” when two weeks have passed since they completed a COVID-19 vaccine series (for example, one (1) dose of the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, or two (2) doses within no more than 12 weeks of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine).

No, there is not any exemption to the Vaccination Entry Requirement.

We accept all globally approved vaccines.

No, you do not need to carry your vaccination card with you. Your Digital Vaccine Card located on your smartphone is all you need to show proof of vaccination to enter the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
