I am a fully vaccinated United States citizen and I am considering traveling to France or Italy next month. For international travel, how does one find a coronavirus test to get back into the country if on-site testing isn’t offered at the hotels? Alexander
Although traveling internationally has been confusing throughout the pandemic — especially in Europe, where entry allowances and restrictions continue to change — there’s been one constant since January: Regardless of vaccination status, Americans (and all other passengers) flying to the United States must show proof of a negative coronavirus test — either an antigen or a nucleic acid amplification test, taken in the previous three days — before they are allowed to board their planes. What’s changed, just recently? Come November, unvaccinated Americans will have to take a test within one day of flying and then take a second test after returning home.
