Land and Ferry Travelers to the US No Longer Need to Present a Negative COVID-19 Test to Enter
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced a minor change to travel restrictions regarding land travel and ferry ports of entry.
In December, the DHS announced that they would restrict land and ferry travel to only vaccinated travelers, individuals under the age of 18 or lawful US residence could enter the United States by land or ferry. This announcement made it so that unvaccinated essential travelers were no longer allowed to enter the United States. You can read more on that in our previous blog.
All vaccinated travelers, individuals under the age of 18, and lawful US residents were also required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
Now, the Department of Homeland Security has announced that individuals entering the United States via land or ferry are no longer required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test. They only need to present proof of vaccination.
This announcement will surely make it easier for travelers to enter the US through land or ferry by allowing them to save time not having to take a test before entering. This new announcement only applies to land and ferry travel for not, but it may set a precedent for how air travelers will be able to enter the United States in the near future.
