Mexico Will Not Require Vaccine Passports for Tourists, says President
Mexico has been one of the most open countries during the entire pandemic. Even now, there are no requirements for entry, not even a test or quarantine. With most bars, clubs and restaurants open, it’s no wonder they are number one on our lockdown list.
The president has just announced at a press conference that vaccines won’t be required for for visitors to enter Mexico, and all other requirements will remain the same.
“We will not require that type of proof whatsoever,” President Obrador stated. “I want to be very clear about that.” He also mentioned the ongoing protests in Mexico as a concern and cause not to implement mandatory vaccine passports. Even though cases are still rising in the country, no restrictions are planned, other than some curfews in tourist areas such as Cancun or Puerto Vallarta.
The only place in Mexico that currently requires proof of vaccination is Mazatlan. All residents and visitors must present proof of vaccination or a negative test no older than 8 days old to enter restaurants, hotels and shops.
The Governor of Jalisco announced new restrictions for Puerto Vallarta where all bars and nightclubs must close by midnight and capacity is reduced to 50%. The delta variant cases are surging in Jalisco.
