Passport For Entry To Mexico?

Fri Dec 08, 2006 9:18 am

Myself and a group of 20 are heading down to Cabo San Lucas this winter for vacation. Now I have a question that I am sure the brilliance of the non-av crowd could answer for me, What is requierd for entry into Mexico? we are all Canadian citizens flying non-stop from Kelowna, Canada. Im too lazy to search it up or to call my agent.

All foreigners visiting Mexico need a passport to enter the country. No difference from visiting another country. As far as I know there are no exceptions.

I suppose you have this doubt as you only need an id to enter the US right?

Hope this helps

cheers

You can enter Mexico with just an ID until January 23, 2007 if you are a US citizen, same goes for Caymans, Bahamas etc.
