U.S. and Canadian Customs Border Patrol Stations
At each end of the FDR International Bridge is a Customs Border Patrol Station for each country. U.S. or Canadian citizens enjoy easy access to either country with only a Driver’s License provided it has a photo. In 2008 passports will be required. At both checkpoints, customs agents usually ask where you were born, where you currently live, the purpose and duration of your trip and whether you are crossing with any alcohol, tobacco, firearms or meat products. They will usually ask you to pop your trunk so that they can take a quick look. Once that’s done, you’re allowed to pass. It is rare when the line is more that a few minute wait.
