When crossing from USA to Mexico by Car or Motorcycle you will require all of the following documentation:
Valid US Drivers License
Mexican Liability Insurance **
When you are crossing back into the USA from Mexico you will require one (1) of the following four (4) options:
- On June 1, 2009, U.S. citizens returning home from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or
Bermuda, by land or sea, will be required to present one (1) of the travel documents listed below.
U.S. Passport - This is an internationally recognized travel document that verifies a
person's identity and nationality. It is accepted for travel by air, land and sea.
U.S. Passport Card - This is a new, limited-use travel document that fits in your wallet
and costs less than a U.S. Passport. It is only valid for travel by land and sea.
Enhanced Driver's License (EDL) - Several states and Canadian provinces are issuing this
driver's license or identification document that denotes identity and citizenship. It is specifically
designed for cross-border travel into the U.S. by land or sea.
UN-OFFICIALLY - Prior to the Official June 1, 2009 requirement a
copy of your Birth Certificate and a Valid Drivers License were acceptable documents for re-entry back
into the US. It has been reported that approximately 30% of persons are still crossing with a Birth
Certificate and a Valid Drivers License. However, you will experience additional questioning, most
likely a secondary inspection, and receive some type of verbal or written notice about the new requirements.
Valid Drivers License & Copy of Birth Certificate.
** A few US insurance providers will extend collision and comprehensive coverage into Mexico, but the only
valid liability insurance in Mexico is one that is issued by a Mexican Carrier. Liability Insurance
is mandatory in Mexico and must be issued by a Mexican Carrier! Please use the link below to purchase now online.
