Question – Can I drive down to Tijuana, Mexico for my bariatric surgery?

Yes, we have clients who drive from Arizona and California to Tijuana, Mexico for bariatric surgery.

Most of them park in the San Diego airport parking area and are picked by the company driver who transports them to the hotel in Tijuana.

Main Border CrossingSan Ysidro

Timings – Open 24 hours

Documents Required – Passport (Proof of Citizenship)/Valid Photo ID, enhanced driver’s license. The authorities accept the birth certificate or passport in case of children or minors.

American citizens should have a valid passport upon entering Mexico. One needs a tourist visa in case the stay is for more than 180 days.

If the Mexican destination is more than 25 kms from the entry border, it is compulsory to get an entry permit called Forma Migratoria Multiple. This is available at the port of entry.
