No More COVID-19 Testing for USA Inbound (Vaccinated) Passengers

Read Time:1 Minute, 18 Seconds

Jun 13. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) late on June 10 officially rescinded its order requiring persons to show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States. The order was rescinded effective on June 12, 2022 at 12:01 a.m. ET.

That meant that starting at 12:01 a.m. ET on June 12, 2022, air passengers did not need to get tested and show the COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 prior to boarding a flight to the U.S. The CDC said the COVID-19 pandemic has now shifted to a new phase, due to the widespread uptake of highly effective COVID-19 vaccines, the availability of effective therapeutics, and the accrual of high rates of vaccine and infection induced immunity at the population level in the United States.

The CDC’s move to rescind the COVID-19 testing requirement for inbound air passengers to the U.S. was greeted with praise and relief by the travel industry, which has spent the last few months lobbying hard to get the Biden administration and the CDC to drop the requirement. Some surveys suggested that millions of U.S. travelers were reluctant to travel abroad because they were afraid of being stuck in a foreign country if they tested positive for COVID just before they returned, resulting in them have to potentially pay for additional hotel nights and disrupting their work and family schedules.
