The U.S. intends to require a vaccination certificate from all foreigners upon entry into the country

Since January 22, the U.S. authorities intend to expand the requirement to provide a certificate of vaccination for foreigners crossing the land border of the country on necessity, and not for tourism purposes.

This category includes foreign nationals who have to cross the border for official reasons, such as truckers, representatives of foreign countries and their authorities to combat various emergencies. The rule does not apply to persons with residence permits. A certificate, according to the source, will also be required when crossing water borders.

The measure for this category has been delayed for several months because of concerns about disruptions in cross-border trade flows with Mexico and Canada. Some industry representatives have already reacted negatively to Washington’s plans. On November 8, the U.S. began requiring foreigners entering the country to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. Only certificates of vaccination with drugs approved by the U.S. health regulator or the World Health Organization will be accepted.
