U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will continue to implement the Trump Administration’s ban on “non-essential” travel across U.S. land borders and ferry travel with Mexico and Canada through November 21, according to a set of notifications to be published in the Federal Register tomorrow. The restrictions were due to expire on October 21.
The initial ban on non-essential travel across the northern and southern borders began on March 21 in response to the COVID-19 outbreak; it was originally scheduled to expire on April 20, and was extended several times. The policy may again be reviewed for possible extension in November depending on the status of the COVID emergency. The restrictions do not affect air travel.
