Santa Teresa

The Santa Teresa Port of Entry, situated at the border between Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and San Jerónimo, Chihuahua, has been a vital gateway since its establishment in 1992. Its primary purpose was to alleviate the congestion at the bustling El Paso Bridge of the Americas Port of Entry. This strategic move came to fruition on January 12, 1993. The Santa Teresa Port of Entry is owned by General Services Administration (GSA) in the U.S. side and Government of México in the Mexican side.

The Santa Teresa Port of Entry boasts three dedicated commercial vehicle lanes and four passenger lanes. Northbound commercial vehicle lanes are in operation from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Commercial vehicle drivers can utilize the FAST lane, if qualified.

This border crossing is located approximately forty-two miles south of Las Cruces, New Mexico, and just a quick twenty-minute drive from downtown El Paso, Texas. Its strategic location contributes to its importance in facilitating trade and travel between the United States and Mexico.
