THE WHITE House announced it will be opening its doors to Canadians and Mexicans traveling for nonessential matters, ending a nearly two-year freeze on entry due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Those looking to make their way into the US through a land crossing must be vaccinated, new rules stipulate, after a 19-month block on vehicle, rail and ferry travel between the US and the two countries left families separated and many looking for alternatives to travel plans.
Fully vaccinated foreign visitors from either country will be able to enter the US starting in early November for any reason, the new rules stipulate.
This marks the next step in the nation’s move to ensure that all travel within the country is from vaccinated foreign nations.
By early January, the country is requiring all essential travelers entering the US to be fully vaccinated.
The White House’s move comes after both Mexico and Canada have pleaded with the US for months to lift restrictions on travel that separated families and long-delayed leisure trips since the beginning of the pandemic.
It also comes as the US decided last month to end country-based travel bans for air travel, and instead requiring all foreign nationals to be vaccinated before entering the country by plane.
