As per Mexico’s National Immigration Institute announcement, effective immediately, individuals who require a visa to enter Mexico based on their nationality (“visa nationals”) will require a visa even if they are strictly seeking to transit through Mexico.
Visa nationals will need to apply for and obtain a visitor visa, irrespective of the duration of their transit through Mexico.
Visa nationals will remain exempt from presenting a Mexican visa (including for transit purposes), provided they have:
(1) a valid visa issued by Canada, Japan, the United States of America, the United Kingdom or any of the countries comprising the Schengen Area,
(2) a valid permanent resident card issued by Canada, Chile, Colombia, Japan, Peru, the United States of America, the United Kingdom or any of the countries comprising the Schengen Area.
