According to the White House, Friday’s announcement by Biden announced that Covid-19 tests will be dropped for international inbound travelers.

Airlines and members of the travel industry had been repeatedly recognized. pushedFor months, the Administration tried to eliminate the requirement, saying that it would hurt international travel demand.

This rule was established in 2021 by Trump and then tightened later by Biden. It required that all inbound passengers, U.S. citizens included, show evidence of negative Covid testing before they could board U.S. bound flights.
