US to end COVID testing requirement for international arrivals
The United States will no longer require inbound international arrivals to test for COVID-19 prior to departure to the US. The change comes into effect beginning with Customers checking in at 0001ET on Sunday, June 12. This change is going to be a great shot in the arm for international demand across our industry, with travelers facing less hassle and worry about being stuck abroad.
While required testing is going away, there is no change to the existing requirement that non-US citizens be fully vaccinated and present proof of their vaccination prior to departure to the US.
The US will require non-US citizens to complete a new attestation form to affirm they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The new attestation form is not yet available from the CDC but is expected to be shared on Saturday, June 11; it will replace the current form that has been required of all travelers to confirm their negative test result.
