The Mexican government announced that Peruvian nationals arriving for tourism or business will soon require a Mexican visa to enter the country.

Key Points:

  • Beginning April 20, Peruvian nationals must have a visa to enter Mexico for tourism or business purposes unless they:
    • Have a valid or unexpired multiple-entry visa from Canada, the U.S., Japan, the United Kingdom, Ireland or any country belonging to the Schengen area.
    • Are a permanent resident of Canada, Chile, Colombia, the U.S., Japan, the United Kingdom, Ireland or any country belonging to the Schengen area.
  • Scheduled trips made prior to April 20 do not require a Mexican visa.

Additional Information: More information regarding visitor visas can be found here.

BAL Analysis: Peruvian nationals who do not meet one of the exemptions could face more administrative processes and incur additional costs to travel to Mexico for business and tourism purposes.
