CBP Travel Advisory: Border Crossing from Canada to USA    

With Victoria Day (May 21, 2012) holiday weekend approaching in Canada, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is anticipating a substantial increase in border-traffic crossing from Canada to the United States of America (USA).  Through one of the government branches (CBP), USA being a welcoming nation, ensures and protects the safety of U.S. citizens, permanent residents as well as international travelers visiting USA for business, pleasure, studies or work.

Travelers are advised to plan accordingly such as factoring more time into their travel-commute activities or travel during non-peak border-traffic hours, and carrying proper documentation. Please see below.

  1. Documentation: For efficient or expedited border-crossing services, CBP is encouraging travelers to utilize radio-frequency identification (RFID)-enabled travel documents such as U.S. passport card, Enhanced Driver’s License/Enhanced Identification Card, Trusted Traveler Program card (NEXUS, SENTRI, global entry, or Fast/Expres).
  2. Avoid Peak Border-Traffic Hours:  Typically, peak hours are between 7:00am and 7:00pm.  Travelers may also check the wait times of various border-crossing port-of-entries at http://apps.cbp.gov/bwt/ to plan their border-crossing travels accordingly.
