Canada-US Land Border Set to Re-Open November 8

The land border between Canada and the United States is set to reopen to fully vaccinated travelers for non-essential travel on November 8, meaning Canadians will again be able to drive to the United States for family, business, or leisure reasons.

Canadians crossing at a land border will be required to attest that they are fully vaccinated, and some may be required to show proof of vaccination if requested by a border agent, but no negative COVID-19 test is required for land entry.  Upon return to Canada, the Canadian government is still planning on requiring a negative COVID test and for Canadians to upload necessary documents to the ArriveCAN app.

For short trips, that are less than 72 hours, Canadians are allowed to take their pre-arrival COVID-19 test before they leave Canada. If the test is more than 72 hours old when they re-enter Canada, they will be required to get a new pre-arrival molecular test in the United States.
