Canada-U.S. will reopen border to fully vaccinated visitors in November

Home News Canada-U.S. will reopen border to fully vaccinated visitors in November

The United States land and sea border will reopen to non-essential travel in November after a record long closure due to concerns over COVID-19.

The White House confirmed Tuesday night that fully vaccinated visitors from Canada and Mexico will be welcomed at land border crossings next month; however, officials would not specify what vaccines would be accepted or if mixed doses will meet eligibility tests.Canada border

CTV News asked White House officials whether AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, which has not been approved for use in the U.S., would be accepted under the travel eligibility guidelines and was told the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention is working on the guidelines, but has no definitive answers at this time.

The question of whether or not mixed doses would be accepted was met with the same answer.

The restrictions on non-essential travel at the U.S. border have been in place since March 2020, when the novel coronavirus first began its worldwide spread.

It’s largely unknown why the U.S. has upheld its land border closure for so long – an issue hotly contested by both snowbirds and the travel industry. In contrast, fully vaccinated Americans have been able to enter Canada for non-essential reasons since Aug. 9.
