Entering Mexico with a passport expiring in less than 6 months

Jump to last reply

Does Mexico have the "six-month rule?" That's the rule some countries have that you cannot enter if your passport will expire within the next six months.

I have found very little on this topic - it has been said that Mexico DOES have the rule, but it is never enforced. Also that the airlines will deny boarding if your passport will expire in less than six months, but I have not seen that on any airline websites regarding documentation requirements.

I am traveling to Mexico in February and in April 2011 (two trips) ... my passport expires the end of August. It's just annoying to consider that i would have to renew before May or June. Kind of like passports are really only good for nine and a half years, just another rip off.
