How Florida resorts will treat visitors who cross the border
The Florida Keys resorts have started offering a new program for visitors coming to the U.S. from Canada and Mexico.
The resort’s chief executive officer, Steve Ross, said in a statement Tuesday that guests with valid visas will be allowed to stay for 90 days in the U.
“Ross added that guests arriving from Canada, Mexico or Puerto Rico would be treated the same as anyone arriving from the U., but they would not be allowed into the resort for 90 consecutive days.”
Government’s policy has been that no U. S. citizens are permitted to come to Florida for 90 continuous days, and we are happy to offer this opportunity for our guests to enjoy a short stay,” Ross said in the statement.”
Florida Keys resorts is committed to welcoming guests from across the country.
We are committed to treating all of our guests fairly and with respect.
“The resort has long offered such a program.
But the new program, which is part of a broader policy to limit the number of visitors coming from the Caribbean to Florida, could be a game changer for the resort.
The U, and to a lesser extent Canada, has seen a surge of illegal border crossings, as people travel from Mexico to the United States, or vice versa.
But those who are not from the United Kingdom or France have been coming to Florida to seek work, visit relatives and stay in their country for longer periods.
It has also been seen as a lucrative source of revenue for the resorts.
But Ross said the U of M program was meant to help boost the tourist industry in Florida.”
We are going to have more visitors from the UK and France coming to our resort, and they will be able to stay there for the 90 days,” he said.”
And that’s going to increase the tourism in the Florida Keys.
“He added that the U is still in the process of testing the program with about a dozen U. of M students.
