The Mexican Government has always required foreigners to carry their Residente visa cards (Residente Temporal or Residente Permanente cards) and their passports when travelling inside Mexico. In the past these rules have only been sporadically enforced, but all that has changed as a part of Mexico’s efforts to stop illegal immigrants from crossing Mexico to enter the USA.

As a result of the new enforcement program, many bus travelers this past week have been required to show their passports & Mexican-issued visas as they get off the bus inside Mexico.

ADO offers this specific warning – advice:  “To all our travelers:
Based on the request of the various state and federal authorities and the National Institute of Migration (INM), in the face of this extraordinary situation of migratory flow that the country is currently going through, we want to inform you that as of October 1, In 2021, the protocol for the presentation of official identification will be implemented in the sale and boarding of the trip. As well as a document that proves the immigration status in the country, for those of foreign nationality. In advance, we offer an apology to all our travelers for the inconvenience that this may cause, recognizing our commitment to always comply with what is requested by the Mexican authorities. In case of any doubt about the immigration documents authorized for foreigners, we recommend contacting the National Migration Institute.”

Travel safe, Travel well, and Keep following our laws …Read On … MacDuff !
