The land and sea border shared between the United States and Canada will reopen to non-essential travel in November.
The White House confirmed Tuesday night that fully vaccinated Canadians will be able to cross into the U.S. next month, however some details on what vaccines will be recognized and accepted by U.S. officials are still scant.
When asked, the White House officials confirmed that AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, which has not been approved for use in the U.S., would be accepted under the travel eligibility guidelines, with guidelines from the Centre of Disease Control forthcoming at an undisclosed date. The same goes for individuals who have received mixed doses.
Land and sea border restrictions on non-essential travel at the U.S. border have been in place since March 2020, while air travel has been allowed with certain conditions.
The Canadian borders have been open to fully vaccinated Americans since August 9th.
