USDHS Announces Extension of “Non-Essential” Travel Restriction Between Canada-U.S.-Mexico
Update 07/21/2020: Travel restriction between U.S.-Canada-Mexico extended to August 21, 2020.
USDHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf released a statement that the restrictions on “Non-Essential” travel between Canada, the U.S., and Mexico has been extended for an additional 30 days (to May 20, 2020).
“Non-Essential” is defined in the notice as including “travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature”. While this does not reference entering the U.S. as a student, scholar, or worker, it will be important to evaluate travel plans if there is an urgency to return to the U.S. in the event the restrictions are enhanced and include students/scholars.
