CBP Announces Revised Hours of Operations of the NEXUS Lane at Sumas, Washington

Release Date: 
December 7, 2012

Sumas, Wash. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announces a modification to the NEXUS program at the Sumas, Washington port of entry. Effective December 10, the dedicated NEXUS-only lane will operate between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. seven days a week.

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.

The revised hours of operation will permit continued service to morning commuter traffic and allow normal non-NEXUS traffic to be facilitated during peak travel periods.

Additional NEXUS information can also be obtained online at CBP or visit the Global Online Enrollment System to begin the application process. (CBP.gov) (Global Online Enrollment System)
