Canada and North America reopen borders

Amsterdam – over a year and a half after the COVID-19 outbreak, Canada and the USA are reopening their borders. Good news for the logistics industry.

The reopening of borders is good news for on board couriers and the entire logistics industry. Since the announcement that the United States will reopen to vaccinated travelers, more has been revealed about the conditions. What will the entry requirements be? And what is still unclear? An overview.

First of all, the date: since the end of last week, the specific date on which the US will reopen its borders has been known, namely November 8. From then on, citizens of the Schengen countries, the UK, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil are welcome again for an essential and non-essential trip.

US and Canada reopen borders

 

If you want to board a plane, ship or train in Canada will have to prove they have been vaccinated or show a negative test result as of October 30. One month later, travel in the land of the Maple Leaf is only possible for those who have been fully vaccinated.

Reopening the borders is important for On Board Couriers and the entire Air Freight industry. As airlines restore their flight networks to the US and Canada, belly cargo capacity recovers. This creates opportunities in NFO services and regular air freight.
