At press time, most countries in the world allowing US travelers to enter required that passengers each present a negative COVID-19 test regardless of vaccination status. Likewise, US travelers must present a test when returning to the US. With the website TestforTravel (, travelers can search for their nearest testing center in cities across the globe.

When searching for testing centers by city, each search result includes a map pinpointing the testing center plus information on what kinds of tests are available and how long it takes to get test results. Locations can also be searched for by the kinds of tests offered (PCR, antigen or antibody), if a country requires a specific kind.

Travelers can also research the COVID-entry rules for their destination on the Global Travel Requirements page, where by inputting their departing and arriving countries and vaccine status, they will be shown what paperwork is required for travel.
