U.S. Consulate General Tijuana


The U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana advances the bilateral relationship in the Baja peninsula – the most populous and interconnected area along the U.S.-Mexico border. Strong social, linguistic, historical, and business ties contribute to extensive cross-border cooperation in many areas and to a broad sentiment that northern Baja/southern California is one integrated, dynamic region where economic well-being is interdependent.  Through more than 125 years of cooperation in the Baja peninsula, the U.S. Consulate General has become an integral part of the community and a vital actor in the US-Mexico relationship.
