Covid: What to take into account when entering the United States?
As of November 8, the United States frees its borders for the entry of foreigners if there is a need for an essential reason, although this release involves meeting a series of requirements.
Those who are not US citizens or permanent residents, must be fully vaccinated at least two weeks before traveling and must present a negative test for covid-19 made a maximum of 72 hours before the trip. Both PCR and antigen will be accepted.
This rule does not apply to minors under 18 years of age, who must present a negative test carried out no later than 3 days before the trip if they are traveling with a vaccinated adult or 24 hours before if the companion is not immunized.
It should be noted that at the moment the United States only accepts vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO): Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Sinopharm and Sinovac. This requirement excludes hundreds of millions of people in places like India, Russia, Mexico or Argentina, who have received the vaccine from other brands such as Sputnik V. However, approval of the Russian vaccine by the WHO is expected shortly.
Citizens or residents should not present proof of vaccination, but in that case the negative test must have been obtained only one day before the trip.
