Here is some very good news from the United States: as of June 12, 2022, at 12:01 a.m., it will no longer be necessary for air travellers to provide a COVID-19 test result to enter the United States.
Previously, this screening test had to be performed the day before arrival in the United States.
This news comes just over two months after completing the test required to return to Canada. But also a few days after the announcement of a significant tourism plan in the United States to boost tourism to reach 90 million visitors annually.
As a reminder, it was already no longer necessary to provide a COVID-19 test when crossing the land border as of November 17, 2021.
It is now much easier to travel between Canada and the United States, but also to other destinations around the world (although staffing issues make it difficult in some airports such as Toronto or Amsterdam, and that the influx of travellers seeking new passports has clogged Canadian services).
Most countries now consider COVID-19 endemic: we will have to learn to live with it without paralyzing economies, especially the tourism industry.
