Briefing

  • On March 21, 2020, DHS implemented restrictions on entry through U.S.-Canada and U.S.-Mexico land borders to prevent the spread of coronavirus.  The original measures were originally in place for 30 days, and subject to reevaluation and further extension in light of the fluid nature of the coronavirus pandemic.
  • DHS has extended these restrictions several times.  The latest extension was issued on September 18, 2020, and restricts entry through the land borders until October 21, 2020.
  • Legitimate commercial trade, border crossings for workers, and other essential travel continues to be permitted. Read our summary of approved “essential travel” here.
