International Travel to San Diego

San Diego serves as a gateway to many international destinations. Daily direct flights coming in from the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Canada and Mexico, combined with quick clearance through U.S. Customs at the San Diego International Airport (SAN), makes arriving in San Diego quick and hassle-free.

You can rest assured that exploring San Diego is easy, safe and convenient. If you're looking for things to do, tickets to attractions, and other recommendations, visit San Diego’s Visitor Information Centers, whose staff collectively speaks nine languages, and can answer any questions you may have.
