Traveling to Mexico During Covid-19: What You Need to Know Before You Travel

If you are planning to travel to Mexico, here’s what you need to know and expect if you want to travel during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The basics

Mexico is open to travelers. There is no need to submit a negative PCR result or quarantine upon arrival, although most resorts ask guests to complete health questionnaires.

The land border between Mexico and the United States was reopened to non-essential travel from November 8, 2021.

Vaccinated American air passengers returning to the United States must test negative for Covid-19 within three days of departure. Unvaccinated Americans will be required to present a negative test result within one day of leaving the United States.

The U.S. Embassy says the results of PCR and antigen tests in Mexico can be obtained within 72 hours.

As of November 19, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintained a travel advisory rating for Mexico at 3 – “high” risk. Level 4 – “very high” risk. The CDC recommends that travelers get fully vaccinated before traveling to Mexico.

What is offered

You will find incredible cuisine, gorgeous beaches, charming cities and historic sites. While the beach resorts around Cancun attract the majority of visitors, those looking for more than just flying and flopping head to Mexico City’s cultural hub, the Baja California coast and traditional cities like Oaxaca.

Who can go

Mexico has some of the toughest border restrictions in the world, and anyone can travel by air for business or pleasure.

What are the limitations?

Travelers in the country must complete a health declaration form and scan the QR code it generates upon arrival.

There is no need to get tested before leaving or go through any kind of quarantine. Those who are concerned about the onset of symptoms should contact the Sanidad Internacional medical organization.

What’s the situation with Covid?

As of November 19, Mexico had about 3.85 million Covid-19 cases and nearly 292,000 deaths (although some believe the actual numbers are higher). President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has been criticized for his laid-back approach to the virus. The restrictions were not far-reaching, and for many, life went on as usual, which critics say led to high death and infection rates.

As of November 19, more than 130 million doses of the vaccine have been administered in Mexico, or about 100 doses per 100 people.

What can visitors expect?

Mexico has a four-tiered traffic light restriction system: red means maximum restrictions, orange means limiting bandwidth in public places and at work to 30%, yellow allows all work to resume and public gatherings, and green means there are no restrictions. See the color-coded map here.

As of November 19, all but one states have been classified as green. This includes Quintana Roo, where the popular tourist destinations Cancun and Playa del Carmen are located; Baja California Sur, home of Cabo San Lucas; and the bustling capital city of Mexico City. Only Baja California, home to the border city of Tijuana, was orange.

Visitors are likely to find that situations differ depending on the country they are traveling in, with different local restrictions. See the Local Resources section of the US Embassy website for specific information.
