The United States is extending travel restrictions in Canada and Mexico for COVID-19.

US extend travel ban

The highly contagious variant of the Delta is spreading rapidly across the United States, with deaths reaching more than 600 a day.

The United States government has extended a month-long ban on non-essential travel along the borders with Canada and Mexico to curb the growing spread of COVID-19 despite mounting political pressure to lift the restriction.

US border communities that rely on buyers from Mexico and Canada and their political representatives have urged the Biden administration to lift the ban.

After Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s administration lifted restrictions earlier this month, American travellers who are completely vaccinated against the coronavirus are now able to enter Canada.

Travel restrictions in the United States have been in place since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, and they have been regularly extended while allowing commercial traffic and vital crossings to continue.

In addition to the land border limitations imposed by Canada and Mexico, the United States prohibits most non-US individuals from entering the country if they have spent the preceding 14 days in the United Kingdom, Ireland, 26 European countries, China, India, South Africa, Iran, or Brazil.
