Positive Report on New Tijuana Border Crossing - I went thru the new and improved site around 7 am on Thursday. It is very nice and has planty of lanes to speed you thru. I had to drive over to the Declare holding area as had a trailer crammed tight with many of our household belongings, everything from a new freezer to lawnmower, clothes and tools.

They were very polite and asked me to let them look into my trailer if possible since I had a canvas tarp strapped down very tightly and chains and padlocks securing it. I lossened up 2 straps so they could try to see what was inside. They asked if I had a list of my belongings which I did and we reviwed it together and they seemed to be ok with it all and made 2 notes on their form about the freezer and lawnmower. I had already showed them my FM-2 and CFE bill explaining that I lived full time in TS and was only bringing down my husehold belongings.

They asked me to pay a 500 pesos import fee which frankly I was happy to do as I had planty of new things and lots of undeclared items stashed in the trailer like we all do. I recieved and official stamped receipt to show the border guard as we left. I want to stress that they were professional and friendly to us at all times and it was an easy crossing with no problems or attempts at bribes ever! - Larry Crowson, todoslarry [- at -] gmail.com, Todos Santos
