Do You Need a Rapid PCR Test Before Getting Back into the US?

Whether you are an international visitor traveling to the United States or simply a citizen who is returning home, there are requirements that are necessary for entering the country. You will need a rapid PCR test for traveling to the US.

It is a wise idea for travelers to get tested before and after their trip to be on the safe side, especially if you traveled to an area with a high number of cases or that was very heavily populated.

Testing Requirements

Travelers who are visiting the U.S. or returning home must be tested for COVID no more than three calendar days before the departure of your flight to the United States. You can get a rapid PCR test for traveling into the U.S., as PCR tests use the NAAT technique. Antigen tests are also accepted.

Foreign passengers should check with their airline to determine what language they can submit their test results in. These testing requirements apply to everyone who enters the U.S, including those who are just meeting a connecting flight.

If testing is not available in the country you are in, you should visit the Embassy website to determine where you can obtain a test overseas. You may find testing exemptions at this link. Before traveling, check that the requirements have not changed at the U.S. Department of State website.
