How do new Border Crossing requirements affect first Responders or medical emergency situations?


There have been no changes to standard processing of first responders or medical emergency personnel.

The Department of Homeland Security has had and will continue to have procedures in place to ensure prompt processing for these individuals.

Special consideration will continue to be made for urgent medical issues, first responder situations, and cross-border emergency services. However, presenting an acceptable document is likely to be the most expedient means of crossing the border for personnel who routinely cross the border.
