It’s a Good Idea to Get Your Permit at the Border, It’s the Law and It’s Free!

By law, every foreigner that comes to Tijuana needs to get a 1, 7 or 21 day Permit sleep at Mexicans customs, weather you are traveling in car or on foot. This is given at no extra cost to you. If you are thinking on coming twice per week, then that’s two Permits, not one 7 days Permit

TRAVELING IN CAR THROUGH SAN YSIDRO BORDER

Once you have reached the end of freeway 5 or 805, make sure you form on the right side lane (If you are Mexican take any other lane) under AUTODELCARACION sign and ask for the permit sleep. It’s no problem if you tell the officer that you have a dental consultation scheduled with us.

To get this Permit you will be asked for your passport card or passport book (no green card, etc). If you don’t have it with you, more than likely you will just get a slap on your wrist, a verbal warning not to forget it on your next trip; but then again you might get a moody officer who can give you a hard time about it.

TRAVELING ON FOOT THROUGH SAN YSIDRO BORDER

Once inside the Mexican Customs building, form a line at your right side under the sign that reads EXTRANJEROS / FOREIGNERS to get your free PERMIT SLEEP (If you are Mexican take the left line). It is highly recommended that foreigners get this Permit and avoid any trouble and, heck, it’s free. You can get a 1 day, 7 days or 21 days Permit.

See you really soon!
