Yup, as of January 26, international travelers have to have a negative test to fly to the US.

What about pedestrians? We fly Volaris to Tijuana and then walk-over to San Diego using CBX. I checked their site and nothing there is posted about testing requirements.

Hope not!

We live here too, but don't have our residency yet. Keep trying to get appointments for the Consulate in San Diego while we are back there, but Covid is making that difficult.

If tests ARE required, at least they should be easier to find in TJ.

That would surely be interesting as many, many folks in El Paso, Santa Teresa, Laredo and so on cross daily. So if you were a daily crosser you would need a test every three days at 100 - 200 a pop?

US to require COVID Testing POT STIRRING!!!

OK, as I understand the US rules, a US citizen who hasn't had sanctions against them cannot be refused entry to the US.

On that note, and this is for Canadians too, what about all those people that pay extra for air evacuations??? If you test positive, in theory you can't be put on a plane for flights to the US or Canada after certain dates.

So, did you pay for nothing???:stirpot:

I don't know what is meant by sanctions but I believe a US citizen cannot be denied entry back into the US. Apparently they could be denied boarding a plane home soon though.
