28 Jul Mexico confirms passports needed as of March 1, 2010
Canadian citizens travelling to Mexico will need valid passports as of March 1, the Mexico Tourism Board announced January 20th, 2010.
Permanent residents in this country, in turn, will be required to present either a permanent resident card or certificate of identity or refugee travel document. The tourism board says the move aligns Mexico with all the security measures established by the International Civil Aviation Organization.
Visas won’t be required for either Canadian citizens or permanent residents of this country. Meanwhile, the tourism board said that the move isn’t likely to affect many people as out of the 1.2 million Canadian tourists that visited Mexico in 2009, only 10,000 didn’t have a passport.
