I recently (on 6/24, first day after the new EO went into effect) went to San Diego for I94 update and before i go into details, i was able to get the I94 updated.
Now for details, my old password was about to expire in Feb 2021 and i have renewed and got a new one. I parked at the outlet mall which is literally opposite to the San Ysidro West Pedestrial Port of Entry on the US side. Unfortunately it was closed, probably because of Covid 19 and the security people asked me to cross over to Mexico and come back. They didn’t/couldn’t answer any questions. I had to decide to take a chance and cross or come back home, since i traveled from DC i decided to take a chance. It took me about 20 mins to walk across a bridge to Mexico, there was a minimal security check and i was in Mexico. I right away turned and joined the queue to get back into the US it took about 2 hrs to get to the East facility on the Mexico side. The agent was very helpful and understood my situation, for I94 update we have to go to a Yellow building on the right that says Permits, before we go to the actual Entry point. I had to go back there get the I94 updated and then i was allowed to get back in.
If anyone is planning to go there, i am happy to answer any questions.
