Travel Restrictions with Canada & Mexico Extended Until May 21, 2020

Nonessential travel restrictions between US, Canada and Mexico will continue for another 30 days until May 21, 2020, according to an announcement by the Trump Administration yesterday. These restrictions were initially put in place on March 21, 2020, for 30 days. 

“Non-essential” travel includes travel that is recreational in nature.  Essential travel refers to transportation activities that will preserve support chains of essential items such as food, fuel and life-savings medicines. Daily travel between these countries to perform essential work is also allowed. 

Holders of US visas such as TN, F-1, H-1B, L-1, R-1, O, etc., are advised to refrain from traveling to Canada or Mexico to apply for visas.  Instead, they should file applications from inside the US to extend or change their status.
