You no longer need to test negative for COVID-19 prior to travelling to the US
The United States have lifted a Coronavirus entry rule that obliged air travellers reaching the US from a foreign country to present negative results of a COVID-19 test last Sunday, June 12
Subject to the rules have been all travellers aged two and older, including those vaccinated, as well as US nationals travelling home from a foreign country. Travellers aged 18 and over still need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination, unless they are US citizens, US permanent residents, or qualify for one of the exceptions to this requirement.
In spite of no longer having to get tested to travel to the US, travellers from Europe who currently do not have a valid American Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) will need to apply for a new one, paying higher fees than in the past.
Since May 26, the fees for an ESTA have increased from US $14 to US $21, also affecting the nationals of the 26 Schengen Area countries, Croatia, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The fee is set to remain the same until 2027. Travellers who currently have a valid ESTA do not need to apply for a new one, as they can use the one they own until it expires.
