Hello world! U.S. reopening borders to vaccinated travelers from Canada and Mexico in November

In more positive news for the travel industry, the U.S. will open its borders in November 2021 to fully vaccinated “nonessential” travelers from Canada and Mexico. In a breaking article from the New York Times, the Biden administration decided to open the Canada and Mexico borders to fully vaccinated travelers. This action combines with a recent earlier decision to allow international travel to the U.S. to resume for fully vaccinated travelers, also in November. Once complete, these actions will essential open the U.S. fully to the world again, but only for those people who can demonstrate that they have been fully vaccinated.

“This is wonderful news for everyone in the travel business,” said Paul Hardersen, CEO of Seadog Travels. “This move indicates that we are hopefully entering the beginning of the end of the pandemic, as well as an indication that nations are adjusting to the current pandemic situation and allowing people to begin resuming some semblance of their normal lives. As the U.S. and international travel industry recovers in the coming months and years, this is a unique time to reimagine how people travel. It is imperative that travel providers offer venues where people can travel more sustainably, more thoughtfully, more immersively, and contribute to the health of our planet.”

Seadog Travels has been busy transitioning to its new brand while also producing a variety of videos from our travels last week. From yurting in Joshua Tree, California, and seeing Alanis Morrissette in concert in Phoenix to spending a few glorious days at Hotel California in Palm Springs, we had an epic trip to to usher in the return to travel. We had it all — a massive thunderstorm in the desert, witnessing the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park, and toasting life in the presence of hummingbirds, butterflies, and the best pool we’ve found in quite some time.
