International covid 19 testing

Hello - I’m just trying to get a clear answer as to whether or not a rapid nasal swab test is acceptable? (Like one from CVS that comes back in hours) my previous test results say: “your Covid-19 test result is negative. Covid -19 NAT, nasal swab asymptomatic. No RNA detected by PCR.”


An online forum mentions something about the test having to say “NAAT” so I’m thoroughly confused. Any feedback is very much appreciated!

You didn't say where you were going.   The answer may depend.

 

Any test is valid for returning to the USA.
