  • U.S. and Canadian auto insurance is not valid in Mexico
  • The nearest locations to purchase Mexican auto insurance are in Lukeville and Ajo AZ.
  • Most rental car companies do not permit their vehicles to enter Mexico
  • The Port of Entry at Lukeville currently closes from 12am-6am
  • A valid passport is required for re-entry into the United States
