Do I need to get a test to travel to the US?

No. As of Jun 12, 2022, a test is no longer required to enter the USA. However, travelers with flight connections should check for transit protocols for that country before travel.

IATA is a great resource for checking travel protocols. Just select any country from the map that you will transit through to see if any restrictions apply.

Anyone whose trip is affected by government travel ban or border closure will be entitled to a rebook credit.  Remember that this is changing daily with travel bans being put in place and lifted on a day to day basis. Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
