While pressure has mounted on U.S. President Joe Biden and his government to re-open land borders with neighbouring countries, that won’t be the case for at least another month. On Monday, the Biden administration announced the U.S.-Canada and Mexico borders will be closed until at least October 21. The border has been closed since March 2020.
While travel restrictions for Canadians remain strict, the U.S. is looking to ease foreign air travel restrictions, which will allow fully vaccinated foreigners to enter the country.
Starting in November, any air traveler coming to the U.S. will need to provide proof of negative COVID-19 taken at least 72 hours prior to boarding and certification of their double-vaccination status.
The new policy announced on Monday will no longer limit travelers from specific countries like the U.K., China and India.
For unvaccinated U.S. citizens, the rules will also be tightened. Any unvaccinated American will need to be tested one day before traveling to the U.S. or leaving. Fully vaccinated passengers will not need to complete a quarantine.
