The last to years may not have brought an immediate end to the coronavirus pandemic, but it brought a renewed sense of hope when it comes to traveling. And many Americans are taking advantage of that feeling, looking ahead, and planning their next vacations.
The options for those who want to add another stamp to their passport have steadily grown since the world was first put on hold last year — albeit often with more paperwork, testing, and pre-planning required. Now, foreign national air travelers to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of vaccination status and a negative test prior to boarding an airplane to the United States. The United States’ new international air travel policy, replaces the existing country-by-country restrictions, putting in place a consistent approach worldwide.
Those who fly back to the United States will also be required to show a negative test before boarding a flight home. To provide even greater peace of mind to travelers, many airlines and airports have started offering on-site rapid COVID-19 tests.
