Traveling to Mexico During COVID

panama airport covid rules

Mexico’s standard entry requirements apply in addition to the requirements listed below.


Travelers are not required to show a negative COVID test when entering Mexico. You also are NOT required to show proof of vaccination.

You should also check with your airline to see if they have any additional COVID restrictions.

Health Questionnaire

When you arrive in Mexico, you will need to fill out a Health Questionnaire. We have written instructions on how to fill it out. Click on the link below.

How to fill out Mexico’s health questionnaire.


Mask mandates vary by state. For example, in the state of Jalisco masks are not required except for when using public transportation and in hospitals.

Each individual state can mandate their own requirements. To stay on top of the mandates for the state you’ll be visiting, I suggest visiting and going to the individual page for the state you are interested in.

Some retailers may still give you sanitizing gel as part of their health protocol. Please do your part, and comply with the establishment’s rules before entering.

During your private relocation tour, your tour guide may request that you wear a face mask in their vehicle. Please comply with your local tour guide’s request. Also, you are welcome to wear a face mask at all times. However, we do not require our recommended tour guides to wear face masks unless you are going to a public place where they are required.

COVID Test IS Required to Fly to the United States

FROM THE CDC WEBSITE All tourists and foreigners who are not from the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status to fly to the United States. There will be very limited exceptions to this vaccination requirement for certain non-U.S. citizens who are not immigrants, including children under the age of 18.

Fully vaccinated air passengers, regardless of citizenship, will continue to be required to show a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test taken no more than 1 day before they board their flight to the United States. For passengers who are not fully vaccinated, the rules will tighten to require a test taken no more than one day before departing to the United States.

All air passengers to the United States will also be required to provide basic contact information to airlines before boarding flights to the United States. This will allow airlines to better coordinate with public health agencies to share information when needed to keep the public safe and informed and strengthen their ability to rapidly identify and contact people in the U.S. who may have been exposed to a communicable disease, such as COVID-19.

Foreigners who wish to enter in Canada must be fully vaccinated.
