The Fast Pass program is open! The lane's hours: Monday - Sunday from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm.

Save time crossing back into the U.S. from Tijuana! The Fast Pass is a one time pass available at certain hotels, medical offices and businesses which allows you access to an expedited lane to cross back into the U.S. faster. It is also known as the Medical Lane.

A frequent question we receive from readers is if the Fast Pass still exists (and how to get one). Yes it does and most of the time it works great!
