Mexico loosens travel rule for unaccompanied minors

By Gay Nagle Myers
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.
