San Ysidro - Tijuana Border Crossing Information

The San Ysidro Border Crossing at San Diego is home to the world's busiest land border crossing. It is where U.S. Interstate 5 crosses into Mexico at Tijuana. The San Ysidro Border Crossing is one of three ports of entry in the San Diego–Tijuana metropolitan region.

Otay Mesa - Tijuana Border Crossing Information

The Otay Mesa Border Crossing is one of three ports of entry in the San Diego–Tijuana metropolitan region. Otay Mesa Port of Entry is primarily commercial in function and trucks are generally instructed to cross there as opposed to the San Ysidro Border Crossing. Commercial crossing through the port accounts for billions of dollars worth of freight.

Tecate Border Crossing Information

Tecate is a small city in Baja California, Mexico. It is located on the border with Tecate, California, United States and Tecate, Mexico in the San Diego–Tijuana metropolitan area. This small port of entry serves as a calmer alternative to the bustling port of Tijuana. Although the city is only 64 kilometers (40 mi) from San Diego and the road to the border crossing traverses mountainous terrain making Tecate a viable alternative to the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
