International travelers may skip the test

International travel will become much easier.

The White House announced Friday that the United States will no longer require a pre-departure COVID-19 test for entry into the country, starting Sunday.

The requirement will be lifted at 00:01 ET, according to a senior administration official. The rule change comes more than a year after the county began requiring a negative test for entry, and more than two years after the pandemic began.

Under current entry requirements, air passengers must test negative for coronavirus no more than one day before boarding a flight to the United States. The rule applies to all travelers, regardless of vaccination status or citizenship, who have recently recovered from the virus.
