Is a negative COVID-19 test required for entry?


Are there health control procedures at airports and other ports of entry?


  • Passengers and crew members arriving at Mexican airports may be subject to health checks, including temperature controls. Those with symptoms may be subject to further testing and/or quarantine.

    • For US citizens who have participated in higher risk activities or think they may have been exposed, the CDC encourages you to take the following additional precautions to protect others for at least 14 days after arrival:
    • Stay home as much as possible.
    • Avoid staying around people who are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19.
    • Consider getting tested for COVID-19.
    • In the US, quarantine requirements and recommendations may vary by state. Therefore, travelers should review each state’s entry requirements before traveling.

COVID-19 Signs and Safety

  • The symptoms of COVID-19 (such as fever, cough, headaches, sore throat, or constant sneezing) are very similar to other respiratory illnesses.
