What do you know about the reopening of the border for non-essential travel? One of the things we are most interested in knowing is -when- and the answer to this question is that it is very likely to reopen by the end of July, the only thing that could change this decision of the Mexican and U.S. Health authorities is if the number of infections increases in the border cities on both sides.
Who will be able to cross into the United States? The reopening will be gradual and no further details have been provided yet, but it is believed that Mexicans with tourist visas who are fully vaccinated will be the first to be able to enter the country.
What vaccinations are likely to be accepted? If you have been vaccinated with these four vaccines, it is very likely that you will have no problem crossing the border: Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca. This is because the United States is involved in the production of these vaccines.
Which vaccines could pose a problem for border crossings? Those who have been immunized with the Chinese Sinovac, CanSino or Russian Sputnik vaccines should be aware that there is a high probability that they will not be able to cross the border, according to Baja California's Secretary of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico.
The above is due to the fact that the United States and China have trade problems derived from the Trump administration in 2018, when it raised tariffs to the Asian country. In addition, the U.S. government has not approved these vaccines for emergency use.
