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 September 21, 2021, according to a set of notifications to be published in the Federal Register. The restrictions were due to expire tomorrow, August 21.
The Canadian government recently lifted non-essential travel restrictions from the United States to Canada to allow entry to fully vaccinated U.S. nationals and permanent residents who reside in the United States; these travelers are also exempt from quarantine in Canada.
Also, beginning September 7, fully vaccinated travelers from all other countries will be able to enter Canada without quarantine as long as the status of the COVID situation in Canada remains favorable, according to the Canadian government. The United States has not announced a similar relaxation of its border policy. U.S. restrictions will continue to be reviewed based on the status of the COVID emergency in the coming month.
