The US government is set to impose a mandatory PCR test for travelers arriving in America starting Jan. 26. The test must be conducted less than 72 hours in advance, announced the United States Embassy in Amman Tuesday.

Alternatively, recovered COVID-19 patients can provide proof that they have recovered from coronavirus during the 90 days prior to their travel date. Proof must be issued by a licensed medical institution.
