Travel Advisory Level Updated For Mexico Travel: Here’s What You Need To Know

According to reports, the U.S. State Department last week raised their travel warning for two states within Mexico but also downgraded four other Mexican destinations. As of press time, the U.S. has raised its warnings from Level 2 to Level 3 and is asking Americans to reconsider their travel plans to Baja California and Guanajuato. 

“Violent crime and gang activity are common. Of particular concern is the high number of homicides in the non-tourist areas of Tijuana. Most homicides appeared to be targeted; however, criminal organization assassinations and territorial disputes can result in bystanders being injured or killed. U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) have been victims of kidnapping,” the State Department said.

There are also new travel advisory downgrades for Nuevo León and San Luis Potosí. They are currently at Level 2 while Campeche and Yucatán have gone to Level 1, which means travelers are expected to “Exercise normal precautions.”

However, the advisory also warns U.S. citizens to stay away from Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas, all due to crime and kidnapping.

Meanwhile, the U.S. has also extended its Covid-19 restrictions on non-essential travel at land and ferry crossings with both their neighbors to the north and south.

The White House said in a statement, “DHS also notes positive developments in recent weeks and is participating with other US agencies in the White House’s expert working groups with Canada and Mexico to identify the conditions under which restrictions may be eased safely and sustainably.”
