POE seeking general advice tips

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We got our tracking number today for the visa being shipped to our pickup location. So we will be soon going to be leaving. The POE in el paso. What is the best way to get there? Will there be taxis available on the US side to get to the El Paso Airport? I am looking for basic logistical advice on crossing there? Thanks.

Hi Mark, I'm from El Paso.

Regarding your question on taxi's being available on the US side, I have not seen taxi's just sitting at the border waiting (taxi's aren't common to just drive around like here in Mexico), but you could always order an Uber via smart phone app, and it's generally cheaper than city cabs and more timely than the El Paso city cabs.

I know about the visa issue. What I am asking her is logistical planning on the POE but Ciudad Juarez. Taxis information etc. Getting from the POE to El Paso Airport.

Once you enter the US side upon turning in your POE package to immigration, there will be Taxi's available in the area nearby. We seen several that were open for business and had one take us to the parking lot where I left my vehicle in downtown El Paso.

You should spot a few but not sure what their going rate to the airport would be? Best of luck on your travels back home! :)

Lastly, please follow the advice that I sent you via message just prior to last weekend.
