Parents with minor children studying in California will be able to cross the border


TIJUANA.- The CPB in San Diego confirmed that parents whose minor children study in the United States can cross the border to accompany them, since now with the return to face-to-face classes in California it is considered an essential trip. 

In the event that minors are under the guardianship of another person, for example, grandparents, they may also cross into the United States to accompany them to their homes of study. 

Since September 2020, the Consulate General of Mexico in San Diego and the CPB reported that as the schools reopen, parents accompanying their children could cross into the United States because it is considered an ESSENTIAL trip.
