Passengers who are not U.S. citizens and do not have a migration visa must still submit a certificate of vaccination before departure
The American authorities have canceled the mandatory testing for the presence of coronavirus for those arriving in the country. The corresponding order of the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) came into force on Sunday at 00:01 East Coast time.
The CDC website notes that within the specified period, the authorities “cease to require air passengers traveling to the United States from other countries to present a negative COVID-19 test result or a document confirming recovery before boarding the plane.” At the same time, as the medical regulator explains, passengers who are not U.S. citizens and do not have a migration visa still have to submit a certificate of vaccination before departure.
In November last year, a requirement came into force for foreigners to present an immunization certificate and a negative test result made no earlier than three days before the trip before boarding a plane bound for the United States. In December, the U.S. authorities tightened this requirement, reducing the time frame for passing the test before departure from three to one day.
