Sí. El delegado del Instituto Nacional de Migración para Baja California anunció en septiembre del 2015 que en Baja California la FMM ya funciona para entradas múltiples para las vias terrestres.

¿Qué ocurre si se pierde la tarjeta de turista/un permiso de turista?

Desde enero de 2015 de acuerdo con el Instituto Nacional de Migración, entregando la tarjeta de turista (FMM) ya no es necesario en Baja California si viajó por via terrestre. Aunque hay una declaración que dice que uno se la tiene que entregar, no existe ningún procedimiento acerca de cómo y dónde entregarla cuando está cruzando de modo terrestre. Pueda ser que el delegado federal del Instituto Nacional de Migración en otras regiones requiere que se la entreguen y que le sellen su salida. Si no va a estar en la peninsula de Baja California, es mejor que verifique con una oficina local de Instituto Nacional de Migración.

Sugerencias de la tarjeta de turista/un permiso de turista:
  • Asegúrese que los oficiales mexicanos sellen su permiso.
