Mexico, even though it is geographically located in North America, belongs ethnologically to Latin America. Even though we know the country as Mexico, the official name is the United Mexican States.
Apart from the Federal District, Mexico has 31 socially and physically diverse states.
The US and Canada welcome many international students every year. Many of these international students who come to Canada often wonder if they can travel to Mexico? Can they travel to Mexico on their Canadian Student Visa?
Let’s find out.
According to the Mexican Embassy in India, the following people do not need a visa to travel to Mexico. They can travel to Mexico for transit, tourism or business for a maximum of 180 days if they have present any one document at the port of entry:
- Any valid visa of Canada, the US, the UK, Japan or Schengen Visa
- PR (Permanent Residency) Card of the UK, the US, Canada, Schengen, Japan or the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Columbia, Peru)
However, it is important to note that only multiple-entry visas are acceptable.
You may, however, still be denied entry into Mexico despite holding one of the above documents. Granting or denying entry is at the sole discretion of the Mexican immigration authorities at the port of entry in Mexico. They have the final say in this regard.
