Starting from October 22, 2023, you won’t be able to use visa-free transit through Mexico, which was previously allowed.
This announcement was made by the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs, citing Article 37 of the Migration Law.
This means that even if Mexico is not your final destination and you are traveling to a third country, you will need a Mexican visa.
This rule closely mirrors the rules of the United States. It is well-known that even for a transit flight through the U.S., you need an American visa.
Currently, the same rule applies in Mexico. Airlines will not allow you to board a flight if you are transiting through Mexico and do not have a Mexican visa.
Remember that citizens of Ukraine and some other countries can obtain an electronic Mexican visa. This is sufficient to enable transit through Mexico.
A Mexican visa or electronic authorization is not needed if you have a valid visa from the U.S., Canada, Japan, or permanent residency in the EU, U.S., Canada, Japan, the UK, Northern Ireland, or countries in the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Peru, Colombia).
