San Diego is one of the main transit points for people traveling between the United States and Mexico with millions crossing the international border here annually. It is very important for US residents to carry the passport, as this is required while returning to the US even if not needed it while entering Mexico. Along with the passport, it is also very important to have proper international travel health insurance since domestic US health insurance does not provide good coverage outside US borders. US based business travelers who travel to Mexico often can buy the annual multi-trip travel insurance to supplement their domestic US health insurance. This insures US travelers while outside the United States for the whole year, with each trip however limited for a fixed period of time depending on the annual plan chosen.
Mexicans traveling regularly to the United States can also buy the Annual multi-trip insurance plans as long as they have domestic health insurance in Mexico.
