US Northern and Southern Land Borders to Reopen In Early November To Fully Vaccinated Travellers

US Northern and Southern Land Borders to Reopen In Early November To Fully Vaccinated Travellers

Update October 15, 2021: The United States is reopening its land borders to nonessential fully vaccinated travellers beginning November 8.

The United States Southern and Northern land borders will reopen to nonessential fully vaccinated travellers in early November. The Canada and Mexico borders have been closed for non-essential travel since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. The exact date of the border reopening has not yet been announced by the U.S.

Businesses and local governments on both sides of the border welcome the reopening of the borders to boost the local economies.

"Kudos to President Biden for doing the right thing and increasing cross border travel between Canada and the U.S. The high vaccination rates on each side of the border have opened the door of safe cross border travel and will now safely increase the rebirth of the economic energy of upstate NY.”

- U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer

Proof Of Full Vaccination Status

U.S. officials have not yet announced what the requirements will be for Canadians to prove their vaccination status.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas released a statement outlining the reopening plan:

"We are pleased to be taking steps to resume regular travel in a safe and sustainable manner."
