Now it will be possible to cross from north to south towards Mexico and Tijuana through the PedWest pedestrian border installations, with the start of operations next week, according to authorities.
The opening was contemplated for the last days of June, but it has been delayed because they were some details to take care of, as well as the introduction of a Banjército office so that foreigners can pay permits to cross to Mexico.
According to Síntesis, some Mexican authorities assured that this crossing was authorized in the El Chaparral Port of Entry without the intention of being bidirectional, although Indaabin, during the opening of the PedWest last year, had confirmed to the media that there would be an entrance to Mexico, which was scheduled for December of last year.
Nevertheless, a southbound entrance is now being considered and near opening, in large part due to demands from the San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce.
According to the Consul General of Mexico in San Diego, Marcela Celorio, this entrance will open Monday, July 31 if there are no objections from some other Mexican federal agency. The National Institute of Migration is the one who would administer this new entrance.
In the area you can already see the signs that indicate the new crossing to Mexico by the area.
