First of all, you should know that Mexico s one of the few countries that did not close its borders despite the COVID-19 pandemic, making it easier to enjoy a well-deserved vacation. In addition to this, it is not mandatory to present a PCR test or vaccination schedule. It is only necessary to comply with health protection measures.

Essential documentation

Let’s continue with the official documents requested for entry into Mexican territory. If you are an adult, they will ask you for a valid official identification with an original physical photograph (no copies or digital) as well as: Valid passport, current residence, or some other official identification.

If you plan to travel with minors, you must present the following options in original and physical (no copies or digital): Birth certificate and valid passport. In the case of babies seven days old, the original and physical birth certificate is accepted.
