New Rules Ease Visa Requirements for Visitors to Mexico

Mexico recently expanded the list of individuals who can visit Mexico without a visa. Now anyone who holds an unexpired visa or is a permanent resident of the United States, Canada, Japan, United Kingdom, or a Schengen member country may visit Mexico for up to 180 days without a visa as a non-remunerated visitor. Non-remunerated visitors may carry out any activity – including work – as long as they are paid outside of Mexico. This new rule renders nationals who would otherwise need a visa to enter Mexico exempt from this requirement as long as they are able to present proof of permanent residence in or an unexpired visa of the United States, Canada, Japan, United Kingdom, or a Schengen country.
