PRESS RELEASE — The Government of Mexico again calls on all Mexican citizens to avoid international travel for recreational purposes or tourism, especially between Mexico and the United States. This is to reinforce the measures taken to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the community and its complications.
Furthermore, the steps taken to contain the virus and the continued reduction in the number of flights and air routes have created a great number of logistical complications that will continue over the coming weeks.
Mexican citizens living abroad permanently, especially in the United States, are asked to follow the instructions of their local authorities. They are highly recommended to stay home and avoid all international travel, including to Mexico.
Mexicans with permanent residence status in the United States who want to travel to be with their families are urged to temporarily avoid nonessential trips to Mexico. Measures to contain the virus have recently been put in place in both countries, including limitations on border crossings and fewer flights.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will continue to provide all possible consular assistance and protection within the current limitations on travel and access.
