The United States is set to lift its ban for non-essential travel on Nov. 8, but there are still several health measures in place for Quebecers to consider before travelling across the border.
The Record reached out to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), however, a public affairs officer from the federal law enforcement agency said there are a few kinks to iron out before the border opens, mainly related to the entry process for land travel.
The U.S. Embassy website provides some clarification, though, and notes that there will be more information from the CBP coming out in the following days. The embassy explains that on Nov. 8 all land travellers must be fully vaccinated, and provide vaccine documentation.
Meanwhile, airline passengers entering the U.S., ages two years old and older, “must provide a a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within three calendar days of travel.” Travellers can also present documentation of having recovered from the virus 90 days prior to travel.
