The Ambrose – Torquay border crossing is the third least used port of entry along the entire US-Canada boundary. It is mostly used by personal vehicles – locals and vacationers. Commercial vehicles are allowed to pass through this port though they rarely do so.


Hours of Operations & Wait Times in Ambrose Torquay

The US Customs Office is open from 9 am to 5 pm daily for both passenger and commercial vehicles year-round. The Canadian Customs Office, however, has seasonal office hours. From the second Sunday in March to the first Saturday in November, the hours of operation is from 8 am to 4 pm. For the rest of the year, the office is open from 9 am to 5 pm. Passenger vehicles can enter Canada through this port any day of the week. Commercial vehicles, on the other hand, are limited to weekdays except for holidays.

Since vehicles rarely use this port, delays do not frequently occur, if ever. Because of this, border officials from both countries rarely post wait times for this border crossing.
