US Travel Association Lauds U.S. Plan To Ease Border Restrictions


The U.S. Travel Association has lauded the U.S. Government's plan to lift the border restrictions along Canada and Mexico for travelers who are fully vaccinated against coronavirus, thus ending close to 18 months of restrictions on non-essential travel.


Praising the move, which is expected to come into effect from November, U.S. Travel Association CEO Roger Dow said in a press announcement, “U.S. Travel has long urged a reopening of the U.S. land borders, and we applaud the Biden administration’s plan to ease entry restrictions for vaccinated visitors. This action will bring a welcome surge in travel from our two top source markets of inbound travel.”

This action will bring a welcome surge in travel from our two top source markets of inbound travel.”

Noting the impact of restrictions on the economy, Dow said, “Declines in international visitation since the start of the pandemic have resulted in more than $250 billion in lost export income and more than a million U.S. jobs. The closed Canadian and Mexican land borders alone costs the U.S. economy nearly $700 million per month.”


“The full reopening of international travel to the United States to fully vaccinated individuals is overdue and will provide a jolt to the U.S. economy, travel businesses large and small, and to destinations across America,” he concluded.
