San Luis Border Crossings Wait Times & FAQ’s

Connecting San Luis in Arizona, the United States with San Luis Rio Colorado in Sonora, Mexico, there are two official border crossings. These border crossings are known as San Luis and San Luis II. The difference between the two passes is that San Luis I does not allow commercial vehicles. Instead, it only allows personal vehicles. However, San Luis II is a border crossing exclusively for commercial vehicles.

The San Luis border crossing connects US 95 highway with Calle 1 highway in Mexico. The San Luis II crossing connects the SR 195 highway with the Federal Highway 2 in Mexico.

If you are in a commercial vehicle and try to cross at San Luis I crossing, you will be redirected to San Luis II. Similarly, if you are in a passenger vehicle trying to cross the border at San Luis II, you will be redirected to the other border crossing. San Luis border wait times can be viewed below.
