Non-essential travel to the U.S., including tourism and visits to friends or family, were blocked by land and a boat from Mexico and Canada during a major covid-19 epidemic. But as all three countries are increasingly being vaccinated, the U.S. government You have decided that it is time to end the restrictions.

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas made the announcement Tuesday and stressed that this new international freedom applies only to those who are vaccinated against covid-19.

"In line with the new international airline program that will take effect in November, we will begin allowing covid-19 travelers from Mexico and Canada to enter the United States for non-essential purposes, including visiting friends and family or tourism, across international borders and by boat," he said. Secretary Mayorkas in a statement.

“Crossing the border creates significant economic activity in our border communities and benefits our wider economy. We are pleased to take steps to continue to travel safely and sustainably, ”Mayorkas said.

Surprisingly, key personnel going to the U.S. currently do not need to be vaccinated as an entry point and the Department of Homeland Security does not need to vaccinate those people until January 2022.

"This approach will provide ample time for key travelers such as trucks, students, and health workers to be vaccinated," DHS said in a statement.

The US covid-19 immunization rate currently stands at 56.8%, with Canada at 72.2%, and the Mexican vaccine at only 37.6%. And even though the U.S. vaccine rate is much lower than in Canada, the northern neighbor opened up to full-time American vaccines back in August.

Countries are opening their borders more and more and this is to be expected and it seems to me to be one of the best decisions at the border level.
