US CDC removes COVID-19 testing requirement for inbound international travellers

13 June, 2022

US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) repealed (10-Jun-2022) COVID-19 testing requirements for inbound international travellers, effective 12-Jun-2022. Travellers are no longer required to present a negative COVID-19 test result of documentation or recovery from COVID-19 prior to boarding a flight to the US. CDC attributed the decision to COVID-19 shifting to a "new phase", noting the widespread adoption and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines, the availability of effective therapeutics and high vaccination rates.
