US Ends Pre-Departure COVID Testing Requirement

We are delighted to communicate the news that the US will no longer require COVID-19 tests before travel.

This change will be effective from 12.01 am Sunday 12th June 2022.

The Biden Administration rescinded the requirement for pre-departure testing in light of heavy lobbying from right across the travel trade.

Jenny Rafter, Chairperson, Visit USA Committee Ireland said: ‘The decision to scrap pre-departure testing is a very welcome and positive development that will help restore our links to the USA and assist the recovery of Ireland’s transatlantic travel’.
