To travel to Mexico, everyone must have a current Passport that does not expire within six months of the last date before returning to the United States. Please make sure that you have uploaded a color copy of your passport to the Miss USA.com Contestants’ Portal.

 

Flights

We are in the process of booking all of the flights for all 2022 state titleholders who have been crowned so far.

With the exception of Miss Hawaii USA 2022, Kiana Yamat, and Miss Alaska USA 2022, Courtney Schuman, all of our 49 state titleholders will depart their preferred airports on Friday morning, June 24, 2022, and return on Monday, June 27, 2022. Because of the travel distance, Kiana and Courtney will depart their respective airport on the evening of June 23, 2022 and arrive in Cancun on June 24, 2022.

Please ensure you provide us with your airport preference in the Miss USA.com Contestants’ Portal.

 

Schedule

After our 2021 retreat to the gorgeous NIZUC resort, we listened to the suggestions of some of our state titleholders as well as other attendees. This year we are providing a little more down-time for our state titleholders while in Cancun. Since the MISS Academy is providing on-line training for all of our state titleholders, limited training will be conducted while in Cancun. This allows for more free time for our state titleholders to relax.

We will post a detailed schedule of all NIZUC activities in the Contestant section on the Miss USA website.

 

Photoshoot

We will be conducting the Miss USA state titleholders’ photoshoots for the website and program magazine while we are in Cancun.

State Miss Titleholders’ Reminder #2

 

State Titleholder Zoom Orientation Session – May 25, 2022, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Central Time

The Miss USA Organization will be conducting a 2022 State Titleholder Orientation on Wednesday, May 25th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Central Time in preparation for our 2022 Miss USA and Miss Teen USA Pageants later this year. In addition to the May 25th orientation, we will be conducting two more sessions after May 25th and we request that you attend one of the sessions. Because we have so many important topics to discuss, we would prefer that you attend the first session following your crowning. Attending the earliest session possible provides you with more time for preparation.

 

The three upcoming Miss USA/Miss Teen USA State Titleholder orientation sessions will be held as follows:

Online Orientation Sessions (via Zoom)
Date Day of Week Time
May 25, 2022 Wednesday 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Central Time
