Note that AFAC is working under reduced staffing hours, so application processing will take longer than normal.

  • There is a no-touch Covid-19 health assessment form, which is required on arrival/departure. After completing the form, print or screen cap the QR code that is generated for easy access. You’ll need to present this to the health inspectors upon arrival into Mexico.

A 14-day quarantine at residence may be necessary; however, popular tourist zones in the typical vacation cities (e.g., Cancun, Los Cabos, PV, Cozumel) are excluded.
  • Restrictions on non-essential travel for USA/Canada/Mexico remain in place until May 21, 2021. CANPASS / CBSA (CANADA) is by far the most stringent enforcer of this policy in regards to air travel.
