SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

Notice of Action
On October 21, 2021, the Secretary
announced his decision to continue to
temporarily restrict the non-essential
travel of individuals from Canada into
the United States via land POEs and
ferry terminals along the United States-
Canada border.
1
The Secretary further
announced that he intended to lift these
restrictions for individuals who are fully
vaccinated against COVID–19 and have
appropriate proof of vaccination to align
with changes to international travel by
air.
2
The Secretary stated that any such
modifications to the restrictions would
be accomplished via a posting to the
DHS website (https://www.dhs.gov) and
followed by a publication in the Federal
Register.
3
On October 29, 2021, DHS posted to
its website an announcement that
beginning November 8, 2021, non-
essential travel would be permitted
through land POEs and ferry terminals,
provided that the traveler is fully
vaccinated against COVID–19 and can
present proof of COVID–19 vaccination
status. DHS stated that unvaccinated
travelers may continue to cross the U.S.-
Canada border at land POEs and ferry
terminals for essential travel, including
lawful trade, emergency response, and
public health purposes.
4
Thus, starting
November 8, 2021, when arriving at a
U.S. land POE or ferry terminal,
travelers who are traveling for a non-
essential reason should be prepared to:
(1) Present proof of COVID–19
vaccination as outlined on the CDC
website;
5
and (2) verbally attest to the
reason for their travel and COVID–19
vaccination status. The lifting of
restrictions for fully vaccinated
individuals does not affect U.S. citizens
and lawful permanent residents
returning to the United States,
regardless of whether the individual is
fully vaccinated, because such travel is
currently defined as essential travel.
Consistent with the October 21, 2021
Federal Register notice and the October
29, 2021 web posting, DHS is publishing
this notice of the lifting of the non-
essential travel restrictions for certain
individuals as described above.
