CBP Expands SENTRI Lane Hours at Otay Mesa


Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials announced today that the hours of operation for the SENTRI Trusted Traveler Program vehicle lanes at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry will be temporarily expanded, starting Friday, June 28, 2024.

The expanded hours will be in effect on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 4:00 a.m. to midnight. From Monday to Thursday, the normal operating hours of 4:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. will continue.

“To enhance our service for Trusted Traveler Program members, vehicular traffic operating hours are temporarily expanding,” stated Rosa E. Hernandez, Port Director for the Area Port of Otay Mesa. “This extension aims to streamline wait times during the summer season while facilitating a more seamless border crossing experience for travelers utilizing the Otay Mesa Port of Entry.”

Travelers can monitor border wait times on CBP’s website or by downloading the CBP Border Wait Times mobile application on their smart devices. Wait times are updated hourly.

CBP encourages travelers to familiarize themselves with the “Know Before You Go” section of the CBP website to avoid fines and penalties associated with the importation of prohibited items. “Know Before You Go” brochures are also available at land border ports of entry.

Frequent international travelers who have not yet joined a trusted traveler program are encouraged to sign up now. For more information, please visit the official Trusted Traveler Program website.
