Unaccompanied minors traveling to Mexico no longer need a notarized letter from their parent or guardian authorizing the trip.
The regulation has been suspended for a year by the Ministry of Tourism and National Institute of Migration.
Prior to the temporary suspension, anyone under 18 traveling alone or accompanied by a single parent or legal guardian had to carry a notarized letter signed by both parents or by the one not traveling with the minor granting permission to enter/exit the country.
The regulation had proved to be a cumbersome roadblock for student groups entering Mexico or for kids traveling solo or with just one parent. Follow Gay Nagle Myers on Twitter @gnmtravelweekly.
