New kiosks and a pedestrian Ready Lane are now open at the downtown Calexico port of entry.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have installed six new kiosks to read border crossing documents for the Ready Lane. The kiosks are designed to facilitate faster border crossings by allowing travelers to scan their own border crossing documents before reaching the CBP officer in the inspection lane. Documents that may be used in the Ready Lane are: the U.S. passport card , Trusted Traveler cards ( SENTRI/FAST/Global Entry ) and newer versions of the legal permanent resident and laser visa/border crossing cards. All travelers over 16 years of age must have an RFID-enabled card to use the pedestrian Ready Lane. The lane will operate 24 hours a day , seven days a week.
