US Extends Restriction on Mexico Travel

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 20, 2020

The United States government has extended its restriction on travel to Mexico, Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf said. 

The move limits non-essential travel to Mexico — including tourism. and will remain in effect until at least June 22. 

“Non-essential travel will not be permitted until this administration is convinced that doing so is safe and secure,” Wolf said.

The move included a similar restriction on travel to Canada, part of the continued fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We appreciate our partnership with Mexico and Canada in ensuring that North America is working together to combat the ongoing global pandemic,” he said. 

Mexico tourism officials, particularly in the Mexican Caribbean hub of Quintana Roo, had signaled a desire to begin reopening their destinations to tourists as soon as next month. Indeed, several resorts in Mexico, including Palace Resorts’ portfolio of all-inclusive hotels, have been planning to reopen June 1.
