Service at the port was suspended on April 18, 2020, as traffic at the border crossing decreased significantly after travel restrictions were implemented in March of that year.
Tony Hall, CBP’s Columbus port director, prior to the pandemic, the port processed approximately 40 to 50 vehicles per day.
“December is usually the busiest month of the year at Antelope Wells, so it was important to get back to servicing travelers who are considering using this remote crossing, as the guidelines allow,” he said.
As with all border crossings, only U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents and fully vaccinated non-essential travelers with valid entry documents may use the facility.
