The U.S. government will soon require individuals traveling to the country by air to test negative for the COVID-19 virus.
Additional Information: The testing requirement will be in addition to “physical presence” bans and other COVID-19 travel restrictions. The physical presence bans bar entry to most travelers who have been in Brazil, China, Iran, Ireland, the United Kingdom or any of the 26 Schengen Area countries in the 14 days before entry. The Trump administration also recently extended the immigrant visa ban and nonimmigrant work-visa ban through March 31, 2021. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, spouses and children of U.S. citizens and a limited number of others are exempt from both the physical presence and work visa bans.
