If your trip is less than 180 days, it isn’t required. When preparing to travel to Mexico, double check the expiration date of your current passport if you have one. It must be valid on day of entry. If it set to expire before that date, or come close, your passport must be renewed. Occasionally there’s a need for additional stamps in your passport. So ensure you have at least one blank page remaining for use. Vaccinations may be required for entry please consult with your medical professional for more information. If you are planning an extended trip and expect to carry more than $10,000 with you, be aware that upon entry and exit, the amount will need to be declared to customs.
