As US-bound British holidaymakers prepare for the first transatlantic summer since 2019, the pre-departure Covid test rule is about to be dropped.
At present international arrivals by air must take a Covid-19 test on the day of departure to the US, or the previous day.
But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed that fully vaccinated passengers boarding flights bound to the US from Sunday 12 June will no longer need a pre-departure test.
The move will reduce the cost – typically around £30 – as well as the hassle for UK visitors to America this summer.
It will also cut the risk of potential disappointment if a traveller tests positive and has to cancel the trip
