Frequently Asked Questions

The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

Do I need a Passport?

Yes, you will need to bring with you a US Passport or Passport Card, Sentri Card, or an Enhanced Driver’s license. These documents have a RFID chip, (Radio Frequency Identification), which allows you to bypass the regular line, and go through the “Ready Lane” (15 to 45 minutes).

Is it safe in Tijuana, Mexico?

Tijuana is a safe city. As in any major city, there are areas that we don’t recommend that you visit late at night. But contrary to rumors, the crime levels in Tijuana are lower than in many US cities, like Chicago, Los Angeles, or New Orleans. Tijuana is certainly much safer than another border city. In fact, there are an estimated 20,000 Americans living in Tijuana.  This is because they feel safe in Mexico, and the cost of living and price of services are much lower here.
