The US Extends Border Crossing Closure for Canadians

August 19, 2021 Update: The United States extends restrictions on non-essential travel across both land and ferry borders with Canada and Mexico to September 21st.

On Wednesday, July 21st, the United States government announced plans to extend the closure of land borders with both Canada and Mexico to August 21st. This will only be in effect to non-essential travelers such as tourists and visitors.

There has been much discussion about whether the US government also plans to require all visitors to be completely vaccinated for COVID-19 before entering the United States. Many meetings were held in the past week to discuss this topic, but no final decisions have been made.

Although the US land border has remained closed to all non-essential travel, some Canadians have been permitted to travel to the US by air if they can show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. This is the case for almost all air travelers heading for the United States. Americans have not yet been permitted to do the same in Canada.
