The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an order that as of 26th January all international passengers will have to test negative for Covid-19 before travelling to the USA. All air passengers, including US nationals and permanent residents, will now be required to take a Covid-19 test up to 72 hours before their departure to the USA.
The CDC have stated that only a viral Covid-19 test (NAAT or antigen) will be accepted and that antibody tests will not be accepted. Passengers will need to provide written documentation of their negative test result or document of recovery (electronic or paper copy) to the airline or they may be denied boarding.
It is also highly recommended by the CDC that passengers should get tested again three to five days after arriving in the USA and quarantine for seven days post-travel.
President Joe Biden announced via his press secretary Jen Psaki that the government will not be lifting the current travel restrictions that are in place. This includes the suspension of entry to the US from the EU, UK, Ireland and Brazil.
