US End Negative Covid-19 Test Requirement

June 12, 2022

The United States CDC has officially announced that the requirement for a negative Covid test for airline passengers to enter the US has been rescinded, effective today [June 12].

The matter was previously reported by multiple media outlets, and the official announcement from the CDC said, “On June 10, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] within the Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] rescinded the Order titled ‘Requirement for Negative Pre-Departure Covid-19 Test Result or Documentation of Recovery from Covid-19 for All Airline or Other Aircraft Passengers Arriving in the United States from any Foreign Country.’

“This rescission takes effect for flights departing to the United States from a foreign country at or after 12:01am ET [4:01am GMT] on June 12, 2022, and will be published in the Federal Register.

The CDC website also listed some Frequently Answered Questions, and one was ‘Is the proof of vaccination requirement for noncitizen nonimmigrants still in effect?” and the reply stated, “CDC’s Amended Order: Implementing Presidential Proclamation on Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the Covid-19 Pandemic requiring proof of Covid-19 for noncitizens who are nonimmigrants is still in effect.”
