LAREDO, TX .- The normal vehicular movement increases by more than 20 percent, which requires customs authorities to keep all booths open as well as enable additional booths in the old batch of imports.

Joe Uribe, director of the port of Laredo office, asked for the passengers to get informed of requirements and bans on products before they reach the international bridges to avoid disappointment and delays.

The agency has a program called "Know Before You Go" which is available at www.cbp.gov web page, where there is enough information to help travelers to expedite their crosses.

At the press conference to launch the campaign this year, the Consul General of Mexico in Laredo Miguel Angel Isidro was present, as well as the U.S. consul in Nuevo Laredo, Donald Helfin, Mayor Raul Salinas and Blasita Lopez director of the Visitors Bureau and conventions in Laredo.

Uribe called on travelers to have the current immigration documents when making the crossing because it speeds up the movement towards the American side.

He recalled that American citizens must be in compliance with the Initiative for Western Hemisphere Travelers, which requires them to have a reliable document as the Pass Card or passport.

He said that passengers should know the importance of information about items that cannot cross the United States to avoid penalties and problems.

Uribe also said that it is important to declare all goods to be carried to the United States and to monitor the crossing times at international bridges.
