US reopens borders for the fully vaccinated
Next month, America’s borders will reopen to vaccinated nonessential travelers, bringing an end to a 19-month stoppage due to the pandemic.
The Biden administration said the policy would take effect in early November and only applies to legal entry.
Officials say travelers entering the US by vehicles, rail, and ferries will disclose their vaccination status as part of the standard admissions process. Officers may verify travelers’ proof of vaccination at their discretion.
According to the CDC, the US will accept any vaccine approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization — including the AstraZeneca vaccine, widely used in Canada.
