US drops COVID-19 testing requirement for entry into country

The US dropped the COVID-19 testing requirement for inbound air travellers from abroad at 12:01 a.m. ET on Sunday, June 12, 2022 ending one of the longest-running travel restrictions of the pandemic.

The rule, imposed in early 2021, most recently required inbound travellers, including U.S. citizens, to show proof of a negative COVID test a day before boarding U.S. bound flights. Other countries, including the U.K., had previously abandoned COVID testing entry rules.

The CDC will reportedly reassess the decision in 90 days with a warning that “if there is a need to reinstate a predeparture testing requirement — including due to a new, concerning variant — CDC will not hesitate to act.” – Extract from the CARICOM BUSINESS Newsletter, Vol 5. No. 24
