Detailed Tourist Information

The United States and Mexico entered a joint initiative March 21, 2020, restricting non-essential travel along the U.S.-Mexico land border to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Non-essential travel includes travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature. The restrictions are in place until at least September 21, 2021.

A negative COVID-19 test is not required for entry to Mexico.

 

Lockdown Details

Mexico’s government has announced a nationwide lifting of coronavirus social distancing measures — with the exception of areas marked as red zones.

A government map (https://www.gob.mx/salud/documentos/informacion-internacional-y-nacional-sobre-nuevo-coronavirus-2019-ncov?idiom=es) shows nearly the entire country marked in red. While in a red zone, people should remain at home wherever possible, and particularly the over 60s, those with underlying medical conditions, and pregnant women.

Under red phase: Only the essential activities will operate.

Under orange phase: Non-essential activities and public gatherings may resume but at a small scale. Vulnerable workers, such as pregnant women, older adults and people with a compromised immune system, may return to work but should be given maximum protection.

Under yellow phase: Non-essential activities may resume at a normal rate without any kind of restriction. Public gatherings will only have minor restrictions. Restaurants, churches, movie theaters, and museums may reopen.

Under green phase: Classes may resume. Every aspect of the everyday life will return to normal.
