U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has opened two new offices, one in Washington state and one in Ft. Lauderdale.

In Ft. Lauderdale, CBP opened a new Federal Inspection Station at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. The airport serves the corporate, recreational and training aviation uses, as well as other activities, and ranks as one of the busiest general aviation airports in the country. The office is at 5301 E. Perimeter Road (33309), +1 954-491-5647, and open 8 a.m. to midnight every day.

CBP also relocated the Friday Harbor Port of Entry facility in Washington from the port to 100 1st St. A Friday Harbor POE was first established in 1883 and a full-time inspector was assigned to the office in 1900. Today, it processes more than 8,000 small vessels into the United States each year.
