NO NEGATIVE COVID TEST REQUIRED

As of this past Sunday, June 12, international travelers are not required to show proof of negative test results for COVID-19 or recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days to board a flight to the U.S. This change came as a result of the CDC rescinding its 17 month order due to the pandemic having "shifted to a new phase." However, the testing/proof of recovery requirement is subject to change as the CDC will continually reassess the situation. The vaccination requirement still remains in effect for those who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents. The CDC does recommend for people traveling to the U.S. to get tested for COVID-19 as close as possible to the intended departure date and not to travel if sick.


If you have questions or concerns regarding entry requirements to the U.S., you may wish to consult with an immigration attorney. Attorney Rebecca Carcagno offers a free initial intake consultation which can help you determine if you are admissible to the U.S. You may schedule this free initial intake consultation with Attorney Carcagno at (734) 999-0360 or through the website.
