December 6, 2021

Travel UpdateThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced new rules for COVID testing prior to travel to the United States.  This new testing requirement will help protect the United States and travelers from the continued impact of the pandemic and new variants.
Beginning on Monday, December 6th, 2021, ALL air passengers traveling to the U.S. must present a negative viral COVID test administered within one day prior to air travel to the U.S. This requirement applies to citizens of all nationalities, including U.S. citizens, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated.  
Either a PCR or antigen test can be used; self-tests do not qualify.
The COVID vaccination requirements remain in place: all passengers, except U.S. citizens or green card holders, traveling to or transiting the United States will have to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status before boarding an aircraft to the United States (with very restricted exceptions).
