US announces reopening of Mexico-Canada border

The United States has announced that its borders with Mexico and Canada will reopen to fully vaccinated travelers from November.

The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that passengers would be allowed to travel through land and ferry crossings for non-essential purposes.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Myorgas said he was “pleased to take action to restart the routine and safe journey”. But he did not say when the changes would take effect.

From January 2022 onwards, it has been stated that vaccination certification is required for essential or non-essential crossings.

The United States has banned travel from its northern and southern neighbors since March 2020 due to the Covid epidemic.

But President Joe Biden’s administration recently revealed that restrictions on full air travel would be relaxed in November.

Last week the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said all visitors must receive vaccines approved or approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Currently, vaccines developed by Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer-Biontech and Moderna are approved in the United States.

Developed by AstraZeneca-Oxford, Sinopharm and Sinovac, all three are supported by the World Health Organization.
