Hugh: As of Sunday, You’ll No Longer Need a Negative COVID-19 Test to Enter the U.S.
Written by Hugh Campbell on June 10, 2022
Some exciting news for travelers, as the United States are set to drop their requirement for international arrivals to produce a negative COVID-19 test. A senior official within the Biden administration has reportedly said that the change will go into effect 12:01am on Sunday. The rule was put in place a year and a half ago, and has remained one of the longest-lasting travel restrictions of the pandemic. In Canada, a negative COVID-19 test is only required for international arrivals if they aren’t fully vaccinated. International travelers arriving by land have been exempt from testing, and those in the travel industry have been pushing for the requirement to be dropped. The Center for Disease Control says the requirement is no longer necessary, but the decision will be reassessed in 90 days and the rule may be reinstated if the circumstances dictate.
