As of January 26, all passengers on international flights bound for the United States, including those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine, will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen) or written documentation of recovery following a COVID-19 infection prior to boarding.
This follows similar regulations issued by the Canadian government requiring a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or LAMP) for all inbound international passengers as of January 7, 2021.
Tests for entry into both countries must be conducted no more than 72 hours prior to departure. Travelers who test positive for COVID-19 but exhibit no major symptoms will be required to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine which can be completed in their hotel on a designated floor (if available) or room.
