Where do upload or complete attestation of a negative test for arriving back into the US before we arrive at the airport?

I don't think there is a place to 'upload" test results.

 

You just have to have proof with you so you can show it when you get your boarding pass  at the airport.

Then is there no checking in online?

@megedav Whether or not you check in online, you still need to show a passport at the airport before they will let you board an international flight. They also check visas if required and other entry requirements. A negative test, if required, is just one more document to inspect.

@bwallet So they let you check in online without proof of test but they inspect the copy of test at the airport.  AA uses Verifly so you can not even check in without proof of a negative test. And that is all done online before you go to the airport.

@megedav I don't know. I've never flown Southwest internationally. I flew Qatar to Saudi Arabia in October, and the first leg was on American. At the airport, American checked my passport, my visa, my vaccination card, and my negative test.
