DHS Extends COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for Non-U.S. Travelers Entering the United States via Land Crossings

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it will extend temporary Title 19 requirements and continue to require non-U.S. travelers entering the United States via land ports of entry and ferry terminals at the U.S.-Mexico and U.S.-Canada borders to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide related proof of vaccination upon request.  This requirement will continue to apply to truck drivers crossing from Canada into the United States.

According to the Federal Register Notice associated with this announcement these restrictions will become effective at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on April 22, 2022, and may be amended or rescinded at any time, including to conform these restrictions to any intervening changes in Presidential Proclamation 10294 and implementing CDC orders and consistent with the requirements of 19 U.S.C. 1318.  The Federal Register Notice also indicates continuing tri-lateral discussions with both the governments of Canada and Mexico on how to best control COVID-19 transmissions over shared borders.
