COVID-19 Test Required for Entry into U.S.

 January 13, 2021   /     203

Starting on 26 January 2021, all passengers traveling to the United States must present proof of a negative COVID-19 test result on arrival, or provide documentation of recovering from COVID-19. 

  • The negative pre-departure test must be a viral test (RT-PCR) that was conducted on a specimen collected three calendar days preceding the flight’s departure from a foreign country.

  • If a passenger has recovered from COVID-19, the passenger may instead travel with written or electronic documentation of a positive viral test result (RT-PCR) that confirms a previous SARS-CoV-2 infection within the last 90 days AND a letter from a licensed healthcare provider or public health official stating that the passenger has been cleared for travel.

  • All passengers will also be required to complete an attestation to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) of having received a negative qualifying test result or recovery from COVID-19 after previous COVID-19 infection and clearance to travel, and retain a copy of the required documentation to present to the airline and/or upon request by an agent of the U.S. government or public health authority.

The Embassy of the State of Libya in the United States recommends that all travelers planning to fly to the United States read the full public health order on the United States Center for Disease Control’s website and plan accordingly.
