  • The test must be negative.
  • The test must also include where the test was performed and the name and contact information for the lab or healthcare provider who performed the test.

I assume the thinking is that if someone was negative on day zero, they won't be infectious on day three in the plane. I further assume quarantine on arrival for the rest of the incubation period of a theoretical infection after the negative pre-flight test.

For better safety, don't travel unvaccinated.
