Going to Tijuana without a passport?
    #11173596 - 10/03/09 07:11 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I know that you used to be able to return from Tijuana on foot and just show ID, I've done it several times before.  But I hear that they've recently changed the law.  Has anyone here tried this recently or otherwise know for sure how they are enforcing procedures?

I'm betting that they'll let me through, but if it's going to take a few hours of interrogation and/or a large fine, it's probably not worth the hassle (or having to jump the fence while my friend waited on the other side, which would probably suck).

We're supposed to go tomorrow later today, so let me know.

i have no idea.  but for future purposes, why don't you just get your passport?  it takes a month or two to process, so you wouldn't have it for a while.  but it seems like it'd be less of a hassle to simply have it.

FYI, I'm as white as they come and I'll be traveling with my Muslim roommate who has a legal passport.

Ya, it's on my to do list to spend a couple hundred bucks and a few hours in line for something I'll hardly ever use, so I can wait two months to receive it...

Note: I don't have a couple hundred bucks.

as far as i know, after 9/11 you need a passport. they'll eventually let you through when they confirm your citizenship, but don't count on being white that'll they'll let you through. you need a passport.

I'm looking for people with personal experience crossing the Tijuana border crossing since June 2009.  Even after 9/11, being white and having a driver's license has been enough for no hassle.  But this June congress passed another law, so I need to know if it's being enforced.  Googling whether the law exists isn't the same as knowing how it's being implemented in reality and how long border delays are for gringos with these recently acceptable documents.

well first off, a passport book costs $100 for a first time applicant.  not a couple hundred.  second, if you don't plan to travel internationally by air, (i.e. you only plan to cross the border to party in mexico every once in a while) you can get a passport card for $45.  it'd save a lot of headache in the future.  and it gives you another form of valid federal ID in case you lose your wallet with your driver's license or something.

No experience, but what are they gonna do? deny a white person into america? as long as they have those one-way turnstiles on the border you can always claim ignorance. any American would have no choice but believe you. I havent been to TJ in about 16 years.

put your birth certificate in your pocket.

It was a one way gate into Mexico when i was a kid. Seriously, what's a Mexican gonna care that a white guy's in his country? it's not like he planning on living there.

It would be funny if you got caught by the border patrol. They'd eventually have to let you go. Funnier if they deported you back to Mexico. Lulz.

I'm back bitches.  Chick grilled my muslim roommate about his passport and asked for mine.  I hand her my DL and she's like 'you got a birth certificate?" and I'm like "no I don't" in my best sexy norcal stoner accent, and she like "ok, welcome to California."  I'd have gotten her number because dating a border agent could be useful, but it slipped my mind.

Nah man, I passed at least half a dozen military checkpoints while I was down there.  It's a good thing I know Spanish.
