I will be flying LAX -> FRA -> VCE at the end of this coming week, and then back again a few weeks later. My understanding from talking with another traveler is that I need to have a covid test, taken with 48 hours of travel, in order to expect a smooth trip from LAX to VCE. However, I also understand that I need a covid test to re-enter the USA. United airlines recommends using eMed; the idea is that you order the test kit before leaving the USA and then use it within three days of the return back to the USA. However, apparently eMed won't ship to my address in California.
How have others successfully traveled to and from Italy from California while meeting covid testing requirements?
