Foreign travel restrictions to ease, but Canada land border restrictions remain

White House announces new rules for travelers by plane

The White House has announced that foreign travel restrictions will ease in time for the holidays, but as of now, the new policy does not include land travel from Canada.The White House said that beginning in November, foreign travelers can enter the United States by demonstrating proof of vaccination before boarding a plane and having a negative COVID-19 test within three days of travel, regardless of where they’re coming from, with no quarantine.Vaccinated Americans returning to the United States will no longer be required to quarantine, but those who are unvaccinated must be tested a day before returning and then again after they arrive home.There will be no immediate change to the U.S. land border policies, which restrict cross-border travel with Mexico and Canada. That’s disappointing for northern New Hampshire businesses that rely on Canadian tourists.”And it’s a pretty steady stream all summer, and all these people are coming to the area, passing through the area,” said Hanna Campbell, of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. “They’re stopping for supplies, groceries, gas — what have you — and that’s a steady, assumed income for all of our businesses throughout the summer months.”There are currently still restrictions for nonessential land travel from Canada to the United States. That policy was set to expire Tuesday, but the White House has now extended it until Oct. 21.
