U.S. Downgrades Mexico Travel Advisories From Highest Level
The United States has downgraded its travel advisories for Mexico, which rose to the highest level during the pandemic. It’s among dozens of countries that have seen warnings lowered.
Mexico has been dropped down from Level 4 to Level 3 on both the State Department and CDC’s travel advisories.
It’s one of more than 60 countries removed from CDC’s highest risk level — which advises all travelers to avoid visits. Now at Level 3, it warns that only people who have been fully vaccinated should travel to those destinations.
The State Department is also advising U.S. travelers to reconsider travel to Mexico now instead of a blanket do not travel, because of factors including both the pandemic and crime.
The department still cautions against all travel to five of Mexico’s 32 states because of crime and kidnapping.
