Can I travel to Mexico with passport that expires in one month?

by Nikkie
(Dallas, Texas, USA)

Question: My husband,son and I have a 7-day all-inclusive trip planned for Mexico this coming July 17th. We were not aware of the 6 month passport validity rule for many countries and trying to find out if Mexico requires a 6 month validity beyond the travel date is difficult to find.


Will we be okay to travel since our passports are valid for the time of our trip and do not expire until well over a month upon our return to the United States? Paying for a passport expedited within one week is nearly impossible at this late date and extremely expensive. We would prefer, if possible, to renew at a leisurely pace upon our return.

Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Answer: Mexico does not require the six months validity in your passport in order to enter. You can renew the passports once you return from your trip.
