Fully vaccinated Canadians will be allowed to enter the United States at land and ferry border crossings starting in early November.

On October 12, U.S. officials announced a plan to reopen the land borders with Canada and Mexico, which have been closed for non-essential travel since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canadians have been allowed to travel by air to the U.S. throughout the pandemic and trade and business travel at land borders has not been restricted.

The land border reopening will be rolled out in two phases. The first phase, starting in November, will allow fully vaccinated Canadians to enter the U.S. at land and ferry entry points for non-essential reasons. This includes visiting friends or family, or tourism.
