Mexico Entry Requirements

Airline Requirements

The requirements listed on this page are Mexico’s requirements for visitors to enter the country. It’s possible your airline may have slightly different requirements for allowing you to board a flight to Mexico. It’s important that you check with your airline to understand their requirements for allowing you to fly to Mexico.

You must meet both Mexico’s requirements and your airline’s requirements in order to come to Mexico.

COVID-19 Test

Mexico does NOT require a negative COVID-19 Test to enter the country.

HOWEVER- Tour guests on the Mexico Relocation Tour ARE required to provide us with a negative nasal swab COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken no more than 72 hours prior to the tour start date. If you are arriving in Mexico days before the tour start date, we can give you recommendations for a COVID-19 test in Mexico.

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