In recent months, the United States has rolled back many of its Covid-19 restrictions, but when it comes to travel, a negative test is still required. This rule applies to all international travelers, regardless of their vaccination status or citizenship.

The current rules are that a PCR or antigen test must have been taken no more than one day before the flight, and the result must be shown to the airline before boarding. 

The only exception is if you have recently recovered from Covid-19 and can show documentary of recovery.

When will the testing restriction be lifted? Travel groups including the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) and the U.S. Travel Association have been pushing for its repeal, with ASTA recently saying it’s “the single biggest barrier” to travel’s recovery. 

While the United States keeps this restriction, many destinations do not require proof of a negative test. GO Boston drivers are here to get you and your friends, family or coworkers to and from the airport.
