U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will open the Andrade port of entry two hours early Monday through Saturday, starting November 10 through December 27, to accommodate the seasonal influx of agricultural workers from Mexico. Hours of operation at the port will be from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the two-month period.

Currently, hours of operation at the Andrade border station are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The two-lane port normally processes as many as 12,000 pedestrians and 3,000 vehicles daily during the peak winter season.

The expansion of hours of operation at the Andrade border station is designed to offer another option for travelers who usually cross into the United States in the early morning hours through the San Luis, Arizona, port of entry.

“We’ve worked to expand the hours of operation at the port of entry to mitigate wait times during peak hours and better serve the Yuma area communities,” said Raymond Nagy, CBP port director at the Andrade facility.

Currently, the San Luis port of entry screens and processes approximately 5,400 pedestrians and 2,200 vehicles daily between midnight and 8 am.
