Travel Tips – Orient / Fosterville Customs and Border Crossing

  • It appears that PortPASS/CanPASS Credentials are still useful during certain periods but we suggest you confirm this directly with the border offices before attempting a border crossing. The penalties for illegal border crossings are significant and neither accident or ignorance will excuse you from their imposition. The Canadian border services have this notation on their website – “After hours entry is restricted to CANPASS Remote Ports Permit Participants only, during the following hours until further notice “December 1, 2009 to May 14, 2010” 8:00 am to 9:00 pm and 5:00 am to 6:00 pm Sunday-Friday. We have also seen this explained as meaning that you can use PortPASS/CanPASS credentials at this port when the US border gates are still open and Canada Customs have closed. No access is allowed when the US gates are closed.
  • You can get Maine road advisories and construction information 24 x 7 by calling 5-1-1 or 866-282-7578.
