Update to travel COVID 19 testing requirement to the United States
December 13, 2021


Effective December 6, 2021 all air travelers 2 years and older are required to show a negative pre-departure COVID-19 viral test taken the day before they board their flight to the United States, regardless of vaccination status or nationality.  You must show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight.

If you recently recovered from COVID-19, you may instead travel with documentation of recovery from COVID-19 (i.e., your 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 you were cleared to travel).
