UK and US will require PCR test on all arrivals

In the UK, the requirement will come into force on January 18, in the United States of America on January 26, 2021.

Starting January 18, the UK will require all arriving passengers to present a negative COVID-19 test no more than 72 hours prior to arrival. This was reported on the website of the British government.

If the requirement is violated, the passenger may be fined £ 500. Note also that having a test does not eliminate the need to go through 10-day self-isolation, which all newcomers are now forced to undergo. The only alternative to it is the Test to Release scheme. The scheme consists of passing a 5-day quarantine and testing in a commercial laboratory.

The United States, in turn, will require a negative test starting January 26. The test must be completed no later than 72 hours before arrival. The certificate of passing the test can be presented in printed or electronic form to the airline employees. Only passengers with a negative test result and marked “Negative” are allowed on board.

If the passenger has already been ill and has a written confirmation of this, he may not take the test. In this case, before flying to the United States, you will need to show a doctor’s certificate stating that the person had suffered COVID-19 earlier.
