US warning on travel to Mexico


Dental tourists and medical tourists looking to make a trip to Mexico can still travel by car, if they can persuade the border authorities that the dental or medical treatment is urgent, but authorities are tightening up on non-essential travel.

Mexico is also open to air travel for all countries, but the USA is warning its citizens that they should not travel to Mexico.

There are currently no quarantine periods for travellers entering Mexico. Mexico does not require COVID-19 tests before or after arriving.

The Quintana Roo region has launched Clean & Safe Check Certification programme, which covers all links on the chain for tourists, including hotels and resorts plus transport, attractions, tour operators, and other tourism sectors.

Several of the most popular destinations along Mexico’s Pacific Coast (Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit) and in the Mexican Caribbean (Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Yucatan) have earned the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) ‘ Safe Travels Stamp’ certification, awarded in recognition of their destination-wide adherence to the highest-level COVID-19 prevention protocols in the hospitality sector.

Resorts and hotels are required to implement specific cleanliness and sanitation protocols established by the Mexican federal government, and monitored by local authorities.

Many tourism boards and sector providers are also working to qualify for the Mexican Government’s Clean Point Quality Seal V2020, designed for small- and medium-sized businesses related to hospitality.

Los Cabos is the first destination in Mexico to partner with international standards organisation Intertek Cristal to integrate its Protek Destination Assurance programme on top of protocols already in place.
