If you’ve traveled to Mexico over the last few months, you know that you have to complete the Mexico Tourist card form and the COVID health questionnaire form, but Traveloffpath.com is reporting that Mexico is doing away with the COVID health questionaire form!
“Mexico—the world’s most popular travel destination throughout the COVID-19 pandemic—has now dropped all COVID-19 entry requirements as of January 1, 2022. El Salvador was the world’s first nation to drop all COVID-19 entry requirements in November 2021, with Mexico now joining El Salvador as the world’s second nation to drop all covid-related entry restrictions.
Unlike most of the world, Mexico has kept its borders open throughout the whole pandemic. As a result, it’s become the world’s most popular destination since 2020.
Before January 1, 2022, Mexico still had a health questionnairerequired for all flights, including international flights and domestic flights. The Mexican authorities called it the Vuela Seguro.
The form asked health-related questions, such as if the passenger has been in close contact with anyone who’s tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous two weeks. The questionnaire would also ask if travelers have had coughs, fever, and other COVID-19 related symptoms.
Once travelers had completed the digital form, they would receive a QR code to be scanned at the airport. It would allow the passenger to pass through security freely, without airport security taking them for further screening if the responses on the questionnaires contradicted authority sanitary measures.
As of January 1, 2022, Mexico has officially discontinued this form.
Therefore, Mexico has zero COVID-19 entry requirements. Visiting Mexico is now no different from visiting Mexico in 2019.”
I’m glad that Mexico has decided to stop requiring this health questionnaire form. It was a pain in the neck to complete this form on the day of travel. Many of my friends tried to download and complete the form at the Cancun airport which is notorious for slow internet!
