We realize there are probably a few of you who neglected to apply for or renew your passport or passport card.
The good news is, YOU CAN STILL GO TO CIRCUS MEXICUS!!!!
But you need a valid driver's license AND a receipt proving that you have purchased a passport and it's "in the mail," but you just didn't get it in time for Circus Mexicus.
On June 1, 2009, U.S. citizens crossing the border were required to present either a passport, passport card, Enhanced Driver's License (EDL), or Trusted Traveler Program Cards. Recently, however, on his way back from Rocky Point, Roger stopped at the Lukeville Port of Entry and talked about his I.D. card with the border guard. According to them, you can STILL cross the border as long as you have a valid driver's license along with a receipt showing that you have applied for a passport and paid for it. We still would advise everyone to get a passport or passport card and not rely on your driver's license each year. But for next week, it appears a driver's license and receipt is all you need.
Circus Mexicus weekend promises to be the biggest RCPM fiesta of the year. You won't want to miss it. Make your plans now to attend Circus Mexicus 2010!
