Add a test kit with video observation and valid results for return travel to the United States?

Travelers returning to the United States by air need to be tested no more than 3 days prior to departure. Show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight or be prepared to show documentation of recovery. We offer the approved Ellume COVID-19 Home Test which satisfies this requirement when taken with ID verification under video observation. You can take this test from anywhere.


When taken with video observation and ID verification, the Ellume COVID-19 home test meets the CDC requirements for return travel to the United States.
