International travel restrictions extended

September 24, 2020

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has extended coronavirus-related cross-border travel restrictions through October 21, limiting arrivals from Canada and Mexico.

Notices published September 23 in the Federal Register detail the extensions of limits on nonessential travel from Canada and Mexico.

The restrictions, first implemented in March, continue to allow for the return of U.S. citizens from the respective countries, as well as travel for medical, education, military, and diplomatic purposes.

The United States declined to extend measures implemented in March that funneled international arrivals through designated airports where passengers would be subject to additional health screening.
