Travel Requirements

Mexico Entry Requirements

Similar to most U.S. domestic air travel, a negative COVID-19 test is not required for entry to Mexico at this time. However, we strongly recommend that all guests opt to take a COVID-19 test prior to their departure. Passengers arriving at Mexican airports may be subject to health screenings, including temperature checks. Those exhibiting symptoms may be subject to additional health screening and/or quarantine. U.S. citizens are not required to quarantine upon arrival in Mexico. 

U.S. Return Travel Requirements

CDC Air Travel Requirement for Proof of Vaccination as of November 8, 2021:

  • Non-citizen air travelers will be required to be fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine and to provide proof of vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to fly to the United States, with only limited exceptions.

  • Fully vaccinated air travelers (including U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents (LPRs), and foreign nationals) will continue to be required to show documentation of a pre-departure negative viral test from a sample taken within three days of travel to the United States before boarding.

  • Unvaccinated U.S. citizens, LPRs, or the small number of unvaccinated foreign nationals with approved travel exceptions – will now need to show documentation of a negative viral test from a sample taken within one day of travel to the United States.  Unvaccinated nonimmigrants who do not fall within the limited exceptions will not be able to enter the United States by air.


CDC requirement for Negative COVID-19 test prior to air travel:

  • A negative viral COVID test or documentation of recovery is required for anyone traveling by air to the United States, including U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents of age two and over, and regardless of vaccination status.

  • Air passengers are required to take a viral test (PCR/NAAT or antigen test for current infection). If they are fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine, the test must be taken no more than three calendar days prior to their flight departure. If travelers are not fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine, the test must be taken no more than one calendar day prior to their flight departure to the United States. Antibody tests are not compliant with the requirement.

  • CDC requires that air passengers arriving in the United States have a paper or electronic copy of their test result for review by the airline before boarding and possible review by public health officials after arrival in the United States. Passengers must provide written documentation of their laboratory test result (paper or electronic copy) to the airline prior to boarding.

  • In addition to presenting a negative test result or documentation of recovery (in English or Spanish), it is recommended that each passenger print and present their attestation form to the airline. We recommend printing your attestation form before you depart the United States.
