On December 6, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will implement a one-day COVID-19 testing requirement for travelers over age two coming to the United States.
Regardless of vaccination status or nationality, any individual coming to the United States must show a negative pre-departure COVID-19 viral test taken the day before they board their flight to the United States.
Passengers must show a negative result to the airline before boarding a flight.
Those recently recovered from COVID-19 may instead travel with documentation of recovery from COVID-19 (i.e., 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 the passenger is cleared to travel).
These requirements are for all air passengers two years of age or older boarding a flight from a foreign country to the United States.
