The temporary restrictions on non-essential travel across shared ports of entry between Canada, the U.S., and Mexico have been extended for an additional 30 days to July 21. As businesses have begun to reopen, the Chamber has urged U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to restore operating lanes and staffing at our ports of entry. This will decrease wait times at the border and ensure our cross-border workforce continues to have an access to the ports of entry.
Normal operating hours at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry have been restored. Vehicle and pedestrian lanes have resumed operating 24 hours a day. Please visit the official website and social media pages for updates on port operations.
Cross Border Xpress (CBX) will resume 24 hour northbound operations starting July 5. Its southbound operations have remained open 24 hours a day. For more information, visit the CBX website.
