This past week we have seen some travel restrictions reduced for international travelers. However, those wishing to come into the US via land border ports will only be allowed in for essential travel.
The US land borders at Canada and Mexico have been under a non-essential travel restriction since March 18. The restriction has been extended on a month-to-month basis and has now been extended into October.
Commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan, Tweeted that “Restrictions on non-essential travel at land border ports of entry have been extended through Oct. 21.”
