    Sorry, I meant leaving the country, in this case Ireland. Why would Ireland care if you were + when you returned back to the US? The US would care but that's why I wonder if vaccine status is taken into account.

    Due to delta variant, thatís why. Itís spreading fast among youth group, I believe especially in England/Ireland region. Also Iím hearing itís dependent on airline specific too, although canít confirm that.

    So, who is requiring the test? Again, I am just trying to figure out how it all fits together. In your example, I would have successfully traveled to Ireland, vacationed, and now it is time to leave. I am required by Ireland to test before being allowed to board a flight home to the US? I have no problem with the extra testing but I am just trying to understand it.

    Iím trying to find articles to verify that too. Itís all rather to be confusing as some are saying itís dependent on airline thatís requiring the test, some said itís the U.S but Iím not seeing it anywhere so far though. Itís not the Irish government that is requiring the test, only inbound there and duration of the stay.

    Not every country requires a COVID test to enter. Many simply require you to be vaccinated.

    The US, however, still requires a COVID test for all international arrivals, regardless of vaccination status. So while you might not require a test to travel internationally, you do have to take a test to return to the US.

    ETA: Here is the specific quote from the CDC:
    • All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens and fully vaccinated people, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 3 days before travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months before they board a flight to the United States.

    Thanks! That would be something that requires investigation. On the ground testing availability and turn around time.

    The UK still requires a 10 day quarantine upon arrival and 3 tests (preflight, day 2 and day 8) regardless of vaccination status. An optional 4th test allows you to get out of quarantine on day 8 instead of 10, but if anyone on your flight tests positive that option evaporates. I expect this will change eventually but Iím not sure when.

    This depends not simply on the country, but also the hotel. For example, staying at a resort in the Bahamas or Mexico - the resort typically has testing on site provided for free as part of your travel visa or hotel fee. Traveling around with short stays in different hotels - you will likely have to arrange your own testing.

    Yes this. My sister is vaccinated and had to test negative before she could return to the US from Mexico

    We are going to the Galapagos. Ecuador requires either proof of vaccination or a negative test. The Galapagos requires a negative test vaccinated or not. We have tests scheduled before our return to the US too.
