Release Date: 
July 11, 2014

Point Roberts, Wash. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announces a modification to the NEXUS program at the Point Roberts, Washington, port of entry.  Effective today, July 11, the dedicated NEXUS-only southbound lane will operate between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT seven days a week.  The hours of operation have been extended two hours from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily.   The extended hours will remain in effect through the Labor Day weekend.

The NEXUS program allows pre-screened, low-risk travelers expedited processing by United States and Canadian officials across the U.S.-Canada border at designated air, land, and marine locations. Approved applicants are issued a Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology-enabled membership card.

To participate, both the United States and Canada must approve an individual’s application.  Denial of an application by either country will keep an individual from participating in the NEXUS program.

Additional NEXUS information can also be obtained on the NEXUS webpage or visit the Global Online Enrollment System to begin the application process.
