Minors in Mexico - Mexico Loosens Travel Rule
According to findings on the Secretaría de Relaciones de Exteriores (SRE) (www.sre.gob.mx) site the following is the summary of the new rules for minors (as the SRE site is in Español:
- It is a fact that Mexico tried to implement a new law (Article 49) about Traveling Minors on Nov 9, 2012 HOWEVER
- This law really only made it to beta test from November 29th 2012 to February 15th 2013 (the government tried it out) AND
- As of Feb 1st 2013, the implementation of this new requirement is being “delayed” until January 24th, 2014
o So, the law states unaccompanied (without parents) minors CAN travel as before without written permission from parents.
