CALEXICO, Calif. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at the Calexico ports of entry are advising travelers in recreational vehicles (RVs) and vehicles towing trailers to enter the United States from Mexico through the Calexico East port of entry.

The Calexico East port of entry provides easy access for RVs and vehicles towing trailers and avoids the congested downtown areas of Mexicali and Calexico.  Inspections of RVs and trailers at the east port is a more efficient process therefore reducing wait times to enter the U.S.

The Calexico East border crossing hours of operation are from 3 a.m., until midnight, Monday through Friday, and 6 a.m., until midnight on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.  RVs and vehicles with trailers will be processed at the downtown port of entry during the hours the Calexico East port is closed, from midnight to 3 a.m., Monday through Friday, and weekends and holidays, from midnight to 6 a.m.

For additional information on what to expect when entering the U.S. at a port of entry, document requirements, and prohibited or restricted items, travelers can visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website at  Travelers can also tune their radios to 1610 AM for hourly wait times and other border crossing information.
