USA Covid travel rules

In America, Covid testing requirements were put in place last year, as it moved away from restrictions that banned non-essential travel from several dozen countries — most of Europe, China, Brazil, South Africa, India and Iran — and instead focuses on classifying individuals by the risk they pose to others.

It was coupled with a requirement that foreign, non-immigrant adults traveling to the United States need to be fully vaccinated, with only limited exceptions.

Despite ending the testing requirement, the CDC will continue to recommend Covid-19 testing prior to air travel of any kind as a safety precaution, according to the senior administration official.
