The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a notice announcing changes to current restrictions entitled: Notification of Temporary Travel Restrictions Applicable to Land Ports of Entry and Ferries Service Between the United States and Canada / Mexico – 19 CFR Chapter 1.
This means that effective January 22, 2022, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will be processing for entry into the United States only those noncitizen non-Legal Permanent Residents who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and can provide proof of being fully vaccinated upon request. This action does not apply to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, lawful permanent residents of the United States, or American Indians who have a right by statute to pass the borders of, or enter, the United States.
In the Trade environment, this applies to commercial operators that enter thru our 8 ports of entry. This requirement does not differentiate between essential and non-essential travelers.
Points of Interest:
- All commercial operators must be vaccinated and be able to provide proof of acceptable vaccinations/immunizations.
- COVID Testing with results are not required at time of entry thru land ports of entry.
- Port personnel will work with licensed custom house brokers and importers on commercial issues that may arise as a result of this requirement.
