1:25 New US COVID Testing Requirements for International Travel What You Need To Know
The United States will require all inbound international travellers, regardless of citizenship or vaccination status, to test negative for COVID-19 within one day of departure starting on Monday, 6 December.
President Joe Biden announced the rollout of the stricter requirements in response to the recent discovery of the Omicron Covid variant
“All air travellers, regardless of citizenship or vaccination status, will be required to show a negative pre-departure COVID-19 viral test taken the day before they board their flight to the United States ” The US CDC
2:57 Type of Acceptable Test
Travellers must take a viral test,
which includes antigen tests and nucleic acid amplification
tests such as:
* Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests
* Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) tests
* Transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) tests
* Nicking enzyme amplification reaction (NEAR) tests * helicase-dependent amplification (HDA) tests
4:12 One Day Instead of 24 hours Timeframe
Different tests yield different wait times, ranging from fifteen minutes to several days.
With a tight one-day turnaround, it’s necessary to take a test that delivers results within the appropriate window.
The one-day period offers more flexibility than a 24-hour time limit and allows travellers to take a test any time the day before departure.
