CDC Tightens COVID Testing Requirements for Travelers
Effective December 6, 2021, all international travelers must take a COVID-19 viral test, regardless of vaccination status or citizenship, no more than 1 day before travel by air into the United States. Travelers must show a negative result to the airline before boarding their flight. For those who have recently recovered from COVID-19, they may instead travel with documentation of recovery from COVID-19.
Required documentation of recovery includes a positive COVID-19 viral test result on a sample taken no more than 90 days before the flight’s departure from a foreign country and a letter from a licensed healthcare provider or a public health official stating that individual is cleared to travel. Further details regarding CDC travel guidance and testing requirements are available here.
Due to frequently changing country conditions and global entry requirements, all travelers should check with airlines and investigate restrictions imposed by their destination country when making travel plans and immediately prior to departure.
