Had a friend cross both ways at Lukeville three weeks ago and it was his first time not using Nogales. Says that if he has to go back to the US again it will be through Lukeville.

Here in Guerrero, and possibly for the entire country, we are supposed to wear masks all the time, and the police hand out masks to those that don't have one on.

Getting into Mexico is no problem but Canadians cannot enter the USA by any land borders. I may ship my truck to MN. and fly to MSP. But getting back to the USA could involve flying. With the virus completely put of control I would not be shocked if land borders were closed to everyone. Or if that violates the US constitution quarantine could become mandatory

The US cannot close their borders to everyone. Isn't allowed.

Does Mexico or Canada have a CDC???? My 2nd VA test today showed me still negative and yes I have been vaccinated and wear mask like a good little boy. I guess one can still fly to MX or is that now forbidden???

Yes, we having something like that here in Mexico. What information are you looking for?

To come to Mexico, you need nothing. In order to fly back to the US or Canada you have to have a negative COVID test within three days of arrival in that country. Both countries require different tests.

Come visit beautiful Mexico!!!!

Regarding the Mexico border, do you mean driving across? We heard this all last year yet crossed back and forth at both Nogales and Laredo with no issues. Just crossed at Nogales last month. Where or in what way is it closed?

Moisheh wrote "to Canada and Mexico". This for whom it is closed. They can't cross into the US.

There was a trilateral agreement signed in March 2020, closing both US land borders for tourists in either direction. Mexico didn't comply with the agreement from the day one, they never closed it for tourists. The closure was being extended by the US and Canada every month since then, no tourists across this border, only 2 weeks ago Canada allowed US tourists on the condition that they are fully vaccinated. US didn't reciprocate, both their borders are closed for tourists. People can still fly into the US from Canada (or Mexico) which doesn't make sense to me because the risk of spreading infection in the plane is much higher than when travelling in a car. CDC recently admitted that Canada is a lower risk than the US since vaccination rate in Canada is 70%, compared to 50% in the US.

To fly from Canada directly to Mexico, you need to be fully vaccinated. You won't be allowed to board the plane in Canada without this. This is now Canadian requirement for all flights, including domestic.

US require antigen test from all air travellers, so if you fly from Canada to Mexico via the US, you need full vaccination and antigen test, cost about CAD 100.

To return to Canada from Mexico, you need a PCR test. Those are more expensive, starting from 4,000 pesos, and take 24-48 hours, not 1 hour like antigen test. Canada also accepts NAAT test, can be done in 2 hours, but it's not very common in Mexico.

If you think the USA and Canadian travel restrictions are tough now, just wait a couple of months for the new lock downs. Peoples freedom to travel will disappear in the name of saving lives.

Folks, you should leave NOW and go to the location you want to ride this HYSTERIA out while you are able to.

Vaccinations won't stop the restrictions that are coming
