    Testing before arrival

    Quick question. What are the time requirements for testing when entering? Is it a strict 72 hours before departure time or can you test any time of day 3 days before your departure date? Thanks! I just know when I went in July it was a strict 72 hours and didn't know if that changed. It can be a pain to get time of day on test results here sadly.

    Saw this but was more looking for clarity on what 3 days means. Does it mean anytime on the third day before departure or more strictly 72 hours before departure? Thanks!

    3 days

    Here is an example............ you could test at 12:01 am on a Monday and the third day can be as late as 4 hrs prior to flight on Thursday..............actually by following the DAYS....you get more time than the 72 hrs. as long as you take the test within 3 days and submit the test results within 4 hrs prior to flight, you will be good.
