U.S. CDC Drops Testing Requirements – Impact on Business Aviation
Effective June 12, 2022, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) no longer requires air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight.
The new order rescinds the previous requirement for all air passengers, two years or older, traveling to the United States from a foreign country to present a negative COVID-19 test result from a sample taken no more than one day before departure, or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days, before boarding a flight.
Here’s what you need to know:
New U.S. entry testing rules

- Non-U.S. citizen, non-U.S. national, non-lawful permanent resident – No testing required, vaccination is required, attestation of vaccination [PDF form] is required
- Passengers UNDER 2 years of age – exempt from all of the requirements.

Required Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination for Non-U.S. citizen, Nonimmigrant Air Passengers
Directions – One attestation form must be filled out for each passenger age 2 years or older who is not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, lawful permanent resident, or an immigrant (“Covered Individual”), and who is seeking to enter the United States by air travel. The attestation may be filled out by the air passenger or on behalf of the air passenger by a legal representative, such as a parent or guardian.
