To visit México as a tourist and plan to stay more than three days at the border, or will pass the second checkpoint, or to hunt it is a must to get a Visa at the port of entry (at the bridge).
The cost is about $21 dolars for 180 days. According to the U.S. Deparment of Homeland Security, US Citizens traveling by land and sea CURRENTLY need to present either (a) a passport, passport card or WHTI-compliant document; or (b) a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, along with proof of citizenship, such a birth certificate.
Remember to declare your guns and ammo using the DECLARATION LANE at the bridge. Look for specifics traffic signs for hunters at the bridges #2 & #3 (Colombia). Ammo can be imported only the first time, when you check your guns in. Remember to check yor guns out on your last trip, AVOID PENALTIES.
The ranch owner or the Outfitter will have the tags available at the camp. Be sure to attach a tag to you game. US Fish & Wildfire requires you to declare your game at the port of entry, and the hide must be dipped for parasites or hard rock frozen for 48 hours. ANGADI at its facillities will have the services for dipping the cape. On birds you will need to leave a wing attached to identify species. Only the hunter can cross his/her trophy. Be sure to keep a copy of the declaration made at the bridge for future references on the U.S. side.
Formats to import game to the US will be readilly available at ANGADI offices.
