Negative Viral COVID Test Required for All Travelers

Before boarding a flight to the United States, all travelers, regardless of vaccination status or citizenship status (including U.S. Citizens, Permanent Residents, and international travelers), are required to show a negative COVID-19 test result (i.e., a nucleic acid amplification test [NAAT] or a viral antigen test) taken no more than 1 day before travel.

Children under 2 years old do not need to test. There are also accommodations for people who have documented recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days. Learn more about these requirements.
