Good News for Non-Citizen Travelers to the U.S.: DHS Releases Entry Guidelines

Fully vaccinated non-citizen travelers will now be allowed to enter the U.S. beginning November 8th, 2021, after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released its guidelines for entry into the U.S. via land ports of entry and ferry terminals.

Fully vaccinated non-citizen travelers will need to provide the following:

  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website
  • Verbally attest to the reason for travel as well as vaccination status

Beginning in January 2022, all inbound foreign national travelers entering the United States via land ports of entry or ferry terminals – whether for essential or non-essential reasons – must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and be able to provide proof of vaccination.

Travelers should expect long lines and longer-than-normal wait times, so the DHS urges them to be patient and plan accordingly.
