Important Travel Document Information – Please Read

A Border Crossing Card is a piece of paper that permits Mexican nationals to enter the United States. The BCC, sometimes known as the DSP-150, is the Mexican counterpart of a B1/B2 visitor’s visa. It’s presented as a card with better visuals and technology.

A BCC allows its holder to enter the United States for reasons like as visiting, shopping, or doing business. It does not, however, allow them to work or remain for more than three days (72 hours).

Who can apply for a Border Crossing Card?

A person must meet certain requirements in order to be eligible to get a Border Crossing Card. These credentials are as follows:

  • The candidate must be a Mexican citizen who currently resides in Mexico.
  • The applicant must demonstrate sufficient evidence that he or she has no plans to stay in the United States and that they must return to Mexico following their visit.
  • The applicant must also fulfil all of the B1/B2 visa eligibility requirements, which include:
    • having sufficient funds to pay their stay in the United States
    • have a record or a statement from the authorities saying that they have never been convicted of a crime

How to apply for Border Crossing Card

A BCC is applied for in the same way as a B1 Business Visa or a B2 Tourist Visa. You’ll need to gather all of the necessary documentation, including the DS-160.

All cards issued after October 1, 2008 have a ten-year validity term. Children under the age of 15 have their BCCs expire after 10 years or when they become 15, whichever comes first. Cards issued before this date, on the other hand, are valid until the expiry date listed on the front of the card.
