P-I-D. Stupid! The US policy continues to be reactive in the era of Covid. Finally, foreigners can come to the US. However, they will have to show proof of vaccination and a negative Covid test taken with 72 hours. Unvaccinated Americans who want to come home have to show a negative test taken within one day of departure. Somehow the incompetent US government thinks that the tight one-day window will inspire unvaccinated Americans to get vaccinated, since those that are vaccinated need to show a negative test taken with 72 hours. Who believes that having two extra days to take an unnecessary, overpriced Covid test that is not necessarily checked by the airlines/airport staff for authenticity, if it is even checked at all, will motivate someone to get vaccinated? Having a common-sense policy like vaccinated travelers don’t need a test to come home may inspire some to take the jab. Regardless, it makes no sense that the US government requires vaccinated citizens to take a test in order to come home. My nose is still sore from my last trip. Enough of this bullshit.
