Sumas NEXUS Lane to Accept RFID Documents during Peak Periods

Sumas-NEXUS-lane-RFID-blogThe NEXUS lane at the Sumas border crossing is now accepting those with radio frequency identification documents, known as RFID, during certain hours.

The lane will be only for NEXUS pass holders from 8 to 11 a.m. weekdays. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, it will operate as a “Ready Lane,” according to Customs and Border Protection.

The Ready Lane will accept NEXUS and RFID documents such as a U.S. passport, Global Entry card or Enhanced Driver’s License. In order to use the lane, your document must have RFID.

The changes are being made to better accommodate commuter traffic, especially during peak periods, according to CBP.
