The exit requirement for Mexican and foreign minors (under 18 years of age) travelling alone or accompanied by a third party of legal age (grandparent, aunt/uncle, sibling, or other), that states the need to present a notarized letter of consent from both parents or the minor’s legal guardians or those with parental authority, duly legalized by the Mexican Consulate or Embassy in Canada and translated into Spanish, has been suspended until January 24, 2014.

In the aim of facilitating the travel of national and foreign tourists, Mexican immigration authorities will allow the entry to and departure from Mexican territory, of minors travelling with at least one parent; with the person who holds parental authority; alone or accompanied by an adult who does not hold parental authority; with the presentation of the minor’s valid passport.
