DHS will Require all Non-Citizens to be Fully Vaccinated to Enter the United States!…

The department of Homeland security said beginning Saturday, it will require all non-citizens to be fully vaccinated to enter the U.S at all ports of entry with Mexico and Canada, including ferry terminals.

• All individuals must present proof of vaccination, and the rule will apply to all non-citizens traveling into the U.S. for essential and non-essential travel.

• The changes were first announced in October of 2021 and made in consultation with the Biden Administration and the CDC.

• In a statement, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said: “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,” he went on to say “These updated travel requirements reflect the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to protecting public health while safely facilitating the cross-border trade and travel that is critical to our economy.”

• The agency added that any non-U.S. individuals attempting to enter the U.S. irregularly – either illegally or without the proper documentation – will “continue to be expelled pursuant to CDC’s Title 42 public health order.”

• Air travelers ages two and older – regardless of nationality or vaccination status – are required to show documentation of a negative viral test result taken within one day of the flight’s departure to the U.S. before boarding.
