THE Biden administration will finally ease restrictions at the US land borders to Mexico and Canada for fully vaccinated travelers next month, it was revealed on Tuesday.

The move covering all non-essential travel between the US and its neighbors ends a nearly two-year freeze on entry due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Those looking to make their way into the US through a land crossing must be vaccinated, new rules stipulate, after a 19-month block on vehicle, rail and ferry travel between the US and the two countries left families separated and many looking for alternatives to travel plans.

Sources with knowledge of the policy have said the White House plans to make an official announcement on Wednesday following months of pleading from the Mexican and Canadian governments.

Fully vaccinated foreign visitors from either country will be able to enter the US starting in early November for any reason, the new rules stipulate.

This marks the next step in the nation's move to ensure that all travel within the country is from vaccinated foreign nations.

By early January, the country is requiring all essential travelers entering the US to be fully vaccinated, with the delay intended to help truck drivers and other essential workers get their shots well before the policy kicks in.

The White House's move comes after both Mexico and Canada have pleaded with the US for months to lift restrictions on travel that separated families and long-delayed leisure trips since the beginning of the pandemic.

It also comes as the US decided last month to end country-based travel bans for air travel, and instead requiring all foreign nationals to be vaccinated before entering the country by plane.

The plan only applies to those looking to gain legal entry into the United States.

Should someone be caught entering illegally, they will be subject to deportation as under the Title 42 authority that was used under President Donald Trump to remove migrants before they seek asylum.

Those in the current administration have said the rule will apply given that current cramped conditions in border patrol facilities are a Covid-19 threat.

Like current rules in place for air travel into the country, visitors looking to gain entry through vehicle, rail or ferry will be asked about their vaccination status upon their CBP admissions process and must have proof of vaccination.

Unlike air travel, no negative Covid-19 test is required to enter the US by land or by sea. The CDC also stipulated any vaccines approved by the World Health Organization will be accepted, meaning many vaccines not in the US - but used widely abroad like AstraZeneca in Canada - will be permissible for entry.

Mexico has no Covid-19 requirements in place for travelers looking to enter the country. In Canada, only those who are fully vaccinated and can show a negative Covid-19 test done within 72 hours can enter.

Biden has already announced the ban on travelers from the United Kingdom will be lifted next month, although an exact date has still not been set.
