Mexico Travel Updates :- No COVID Test to Fly

Plenty of countries around the world have strict entry requirements in place, such as mandatory quarantine, extensive PCR testing, and/or filling out travel forms.

However, that’s not the case with Mexico. In fact, Mexico has some of the most relaxed border restrictions at the moment, and all travelers are welcome to enter the country for business or leisure. There is no need for PCR and/or antigen testing, nor are there any self-isolation measures in place.

Mexico is open to travelers. There is no need to provide a negative PCR test or quarantine on arrival, though most resorts ask guests to fill out health questionnaires.

The land border between Mexico and the United States has been reopened to nonessential travel since November 8, 2021.

Since December 6, all American air travelers 2 and older returning to the US need a negative Covid-19 test taken within one day their departing flight, regardless of vaccination status. It’s part of a general tightening of US travel rules because of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

The US Embassy says results for PCR and antigen tests are reliably available within 24 hours in Mexico.

As of December 30, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintained Mexico’s travel advisory rating at level 3 — “high” risk. Level 4 is “very high” risk. The CDC advises travelers to be fully vaccinated before traveling to Mexico.

Mexico is currently open to travelers, and the land border between the U.S. and Mexico reopened to non-essential travel on November 8, 2021. That means you can visit the country via train, car, flight, cruise ship, ferry, and pretty much any other mode of transportation that comes to mind.

The Mexican government does ask that tourists still wear face masks in public spaces and continue to social distance. Some states also enforce a curfew, so be sure to check the specific guidelines of your destination before you plan too many late-night excursions.

Mexico COVID tests for Travel


Do you need to provide a negative COVID test to enter Mexico?

No Need to Provide Covid Test Result for Mexico

But you still need to complete a declaration of health, which asks general questions about your health and recent potential exposures to COVID.

There are also health screening procedures at airports and other ports of entry, and people showing symptoms may be subject to further restrictions. According to the U.S. Embassy’s website: “Passengers and aircrew members arriving at Mexican airports may be subject to health screenings including temperature checks. Those exhibiting symptoms may be subject to additional health screening and/or quarantine.”

However, you do need to be tested to return to the United States. As of December 6, the State Department requires a negative viral COVID test (PCR or antigen; it can be an at-home test if it’s one supervised by a telehealth service) taken no more than one day before travel. This applies to anyone traveling by air into the country, including U.S. citizens and people who are fully vaccinated
