U.S. Land Border Restrictions on Travel From Canada and Mexico Extended Through October 21

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will continue to implement the ban on “non-essential” travel across U.S. land borders and ferry travel with Canada and Mexico through October 21, 2021, according to a set of notifications to be published in the Federal Register. The restrictions were due to expire today, September 21.


The initial ban on non-essential travel across the northern and southern borders began on March 21, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 outbreak; it was originally scheduled to expire in April 2020 but has been extended continuously in one-month increments. The restrictions do not affect air travel.
