Officials with the White House COVID-19 response team are expected to discuss the reopening of the U.S. land borders with Canada and Mexico, which will take place in early November for fully vaccinated travellers. A specific date has not yet been announced.
Senior White House officials said details of the new rules would include the kind of vaccines that will be accepted. Earlier this week, the U.S. also said it would accept the use of international visitors of COVID-19 vaccines authorized by U.S. regulators, or the World Health Organization. It is not yet known if this will also apply, however, to non-essential travellers from Canada and Mexico. There is also no information yet on whether those who received mixed doses of COVID-19 vaccines would also be allowed entry.
Under the new rules, White House officials said non-essential travellers will be asked about their vaccination status at land border crossings, and only those fully vaccinated will be allowed through. Proof of vaccination will not be required unless selected for random screening. A COVID-19 negative test will not be required, unlike air travel, provided travellers meet the vaccine requirement.
