RT-PCR Testing for Travel
At the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, several countries that once welcomed U.S. citizens with few restrictions closed their borders. In other words: they rolled up the welcome mat and packed it away. It wasn’t just other countries, though. Many U.S. states all but closed to visitors by mandating 14-day quarantines upon entry.
Many countries and some states require negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests taken within a certain amount of time — usually 72 hours —before departure. Even if you’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19, you’ll need to provide a negative test before boarding. Airlines must confirm the negative result (or recovery from COVID-19) for all passengers, and travelers without documentation, either printed or digital, will be prohibited from flying to the United States.
If you get a negative test, travel, and return within three days, the test taken before departing the U.S. will be accepted.
There are several exemptions to this rule. Travelers flying back from U.S. territories; travelers arriving via a land border such as Mexico or Canada; and flight crew members will not need to present a negative COVID-19 test.
Also, keep in mind that test results delivered over the phone, which likely won’t be suitable for boarding an aircraft or entering a country.
