CBP temporarily reducing hours at several North Dakota ports of entry
PEMBINA, N.D. ― Due to a significant reduction in privately owned vehicle and pedestrian traffic along our northern border, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will temporarily reduce the hours of operation at several ports of entry in North Dakota beginning Monday.
With the “essential only” travel restrictions imposed on March 21 in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, cross-border travel has significantly declined. Reducing the hours of operations at ports of entry along both land borders will allow CBP to continue to provide service to these communities as we work to keep our employees safe from exposure and community spread.
The following ports are slated for a reduction in hours:
Carbury 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Daily
Fortuna 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Daily
Maida 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Daily
Neche 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Daily 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Daily
Noonan 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Daily
Northgate 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Daily
Saint John 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Daily 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Daily
Sherwood 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Daily
Walhalla 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Daily 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Daily
Westhope 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Daily 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Daily
Travelers considered essential should adjust their travel according to the new hours of operation.
These reduced hours will remain in place until April 30, or until the Administration lifts the current travel restrictions. CBP will return to previous hours once the COVID-19 emergency has subsided.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP is charged with securing the borders of the United States while enforcing hundreds of laws and facilitating lawful trade and travel.
