End of the Covid test from June 12, 2022

  • The American authorities are further relaxing the set of restrictions adopted during the Covid-19 crisis! After having decided, on November 8, 2021, to open the borders for vaccinated people, the US government has announced that travelers over the age of 18 to the US will no longer need to present a Covid-19 test. This new provision comes into force from June 12, 2022. Good news for millions of visitors, tourists and business people!
  • Since December 6, 2021, all travelers over the age of 2 had to present a negative Covid-19 PCR or antigen test carried out the day before or the same day of departure to be able to enter the USA.
  • It should be noted that this relaxation will be the subject of an assessment in 90 days, according to the spokesperson for the American presidency, Kevin Munoz, according to the evolution of the health situation. Enough to guarantee a stability of the rules for the whole summer season!
  • On the other hand, the American authorities maintain the vaccination obligation. Visitors must present proof of the injection of 2 doses of vaccine against Covid-19 to be able to enter American territory. Go to our article dedicated to the rules for traveling to the USA.

And for children from 2 to 17 years old?

  • And for the children? Unvaccinated children ages 2-17 must take a Covid test within 3-5 days of arriving in the United States, or self-isolate for 5 days. In the event of symptoms or a positive Covid test, children must be isolated for 5 days.
