Fast lane from Mexico now open


BROWNSVILLE, Texas — U.S. Customs and Border Protection opens a fast lane at the Veterans International Bridge in Brownsville. Starting this month, a dedicated lane is now open for travels from Mexico into the United States as part of a program known as the Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection (SENTRI). The program is meant to facilitate travel for pre-approved low risk travelers by skipping large lines at the bridge.

Elias Rodriguez, Public Affairs Liaison – CBP, “If travelers would like to save time and obtain front of the line privileges, we encourage them to participate in the SENTRI program. It will save them time and facilitate their entry into the United States.”

Travelers must first apply to the SENTRI program before using the fast lanes. The program will be a permanent addition to the Brownsville Port of Entry.

To apply for the SENTRI program applications are here: HTTPS://TTP.CBP.DHS.GOV/.
