The Canada-US border closure will continue until February 21


On January 12, 2021, the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau announced the extension of the border closure between the United States and Canada for another month. Therefore, COVOD-19 travel restrictions for non-essential travels between the two countries will last until at least February 21, 2021. Trudeau emphasized that this “important decision” was taken to keep citizens on both sides of the border safe. The border between the two neighbours remains closed since March 2020. Since Canada aligned the international travel restrictions with the US land border travel restrictions, we can expect the announcement of the extension of the international travel restrictions for another month in the next few days.
