At the time of posting (April 2022), travellers to the US are required to obtain a negative COVID test result no earlier than the day before they fly*.
To be frank, waiting to take these tests is terrifying - if you fail, you ain’t travelling!
We were lucky in that, with the exception of Dan (who had to go into work), we were able to isolate for around 12 days before our tests.
(This did however trigger flashbacks from lockdown #1, stuck at home alone with both boys 😂)
As it’s an FAQ over on Insta, I thought I’d share a review of our testing experience.
This will soon be followed by a second post sharing our experience using Virgin FlyReady, flying from Manchester to Orlando with 2 children.
*Unless they have an exception - of which the only common one is having had COVID within the previous 90 days AND being able to satisfy the CDC Documentation of Recovery requirements.
