Essential or not, foreign national students, truckers, workers, etc, must show full proof of COVID-19 vaccination by presenting full vaccination proof crossing international ports of entry from Canada or Mexico.
This new regulation, by the Biden-Harris Administration, goes into effect starting Saturday, Jan. 22, in which only non-essential travelers were previously asked to show full COVID-19 vaccine documentation when crossing ports of entry. The Department of Homeland Security implemented this new regulation to protect American citizens and communities across the north/south border region and nationally.
Permanent residents and American citizens re-entering the United States from north and south border entries are not required and still exempt to show vaccination proof.
“Starting on January 22, 2022, the Department of Homeland Security will require those non-U.S. individuals entering the United States via land ports of entry or ferry terminals along our Northern and Southern borders be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and be prepared to show related proof of vaccination,” said DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
