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."

What I value most about Evelyn's counsel is her willingness to think outside the box when navigating complex or stressful immigration matters. When presented with a problem, Evelyn immediately envisions herself as the client and then draws from her broad experience to design a solution. Her unshakeable knowledge of immigration law and policy is obvious. However, what distinguishes her most from other practitioners is her intuitive and action-oriented advice. She understands us and is an absolute asset to our business.
