International travelers can now use Covid-19 home tests to meet the U.S. reentry requirement.

The CDC made the change on May 7. 

Since January, travelers coming from abroad have had to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test conducted within 72 hours of departure. Home test results are now eligible as long as the particular testing product has emergency authorization from the Food and Drug Administration. The procedure must include remote, real-time supervision by a telehealth service associated with the manufacturer. 

The CDC is warning travelers that some countries might restrict importation of home Covid-19 tests that are not authorized there. Travelers should contact authorities in their foreign destination prior to departure.
