What do I need to know before moving to Tijuana?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tijuana, they said...

"Tijuana has 1,400,000 inhabitants, has few attractions and is a dirty, ugly border town. There are few job opportunities and most jobs pay about $20 (US)/day!!! If you are an American citizen, you can cross the border (fast crossing with Sentry or Global Entry cards) and work in the U.S. We HAD to move here, (long story) or I never would have left Puerto Vallarta. This should not be a destination for families with children. It's a last resort for those down and out, trying to save a bit of money, while working in the U.S," wrote a member who made the move to Tijuana, Mexico.

"Expatriates should do some research before moving to Tijuana. It is a large and complex city with a range of demographic and economic patterns, so understanding it helps to make informed decisions. Expats should also familiarize themselves with the language, as it is rarely spoken elsewhere in Mexico or in many parts of Latin America. Additionally, as Tijuana is close to the US border, it is important to be aware of visa regulations and laws regarding crossing the border and obtaining necessary permits. Healthcare is another important factor to consider; while there are many excellent medical and dental facilities in Tijuana, it is still wise to review the quality of care and obtain any necessary travel insurance in advance. Safety is a common concern for expats, and it is always wise to research the area thoroughly before committing to a move," explained one expat living in Tijuana, Mexico.
