CBP Announces Changes to Travel Restrictions Between Canada, Mexico, and the United States

30 Dec

On December 23, 2021, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that travel restrictions for certain non-essential travelers entering the United States from Canada and Mexico by land or ferry ports of entry will be lifted. Restrictions are lifted for fully vaccinated individuals who can show proof of complete vaccination against COVID-19. The lifting of these travel restrictions should not affect U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents.

Accordingly, international travelers entering the United States from Canada or Mexico via a land or ferry port of entry should be prepared to present the following:

  1. Proof of complete vaccination against COVID-19 as defined by the CDC; and
  2. Verbal confirmation of vaccination status and reason for travel to the United States.
