TUCSON — Federal officials are reminding people crossing the Arizona-Mexico border for the Easter holiday to expect delays.

Customs and Border Protection advised travelers Wednesday to plan ahead for increased traffic at ports of entry. Officials said travelers should make sure they have amsterdam apartments and all proper documentation such as passports ready for inspection.

The week leading into Easter is typically one of the busiest travel times at southwest border crossings. There is also an increase in the number of Mexican laser-visa cardholders who need special I-94 permits to travel outside of border zones.
