To open America to more tourists, the U.S. is set to will lift a requirement that international travelers flying into the U.S. receive negative coronavirus test results within a day before lift-off.

The move reportedly came as COVID cases worldwide fell sharply this spring.

Sources said the requirement is expected to end at midnight Sunday.

According to reports, the U.S. first implemented a COVID testing requirement for flights into the U.S. in January 2021.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Travel Association, a trade group, expressed joy about the order.

“Today marks another huge step forward for the recovery of inbound air travel and the return of international travel to the United States,” Roger Dow, the president of the U.S. Travel Association, said in a statement.

“The Biden administration is to be commended for this action, which will welcome back visitors from around the world and accelerate the recovery of the U.S. travel industry,” Dow added.
