The US CBP continues to require vaccinations at the border crossings with Canada and Mexico

According to the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will continue to require non-U.S. citizens entering the United States through land ports of entry and through ship terminals at the Mexico-U.S. and Canada-U.S. borders to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to provide proof of vaccination upon demand.


For travelers outside the United States who are traveling for essential or non-essential reasons, these requirements continue to apply, but they do not apply to citizens, lawful permanent residents, or nationals of the United States.


Non-U.S. travelers entering the United States through land ports of entry or ferry terminals, whether for essential or non-essential reasons are required to verbally attest to their COVID-19 vaccination status and provide, upon request, proof of a CDC-approved COVID-19 vaccination.


Also, they must present a valid Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI)-compliant document, such as a valid passport, Trusted Traveler Program card, or Enhanced Tribal Card and be prepared when a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer requests additional documents.


Keep in mind that the COVID-19 test is not required when entering the United States via an entry port or ferry terminal.
