Great overview! One notable omission - Covid policies for entry into Mexico. Is proof of vaccination required?

Hi Ravi-Har! Thank you so much for the great review and feedback.That's a great point, we lightly touch on the Covid situation in the Temporary Residency section. As of today, proof of vaccination is not required, however since things are fluid and can change month-to-month, we always recommend checking this link prior to entry for planning purposes: https://mx.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information-for-u-s-citizens-in-mexico/

Thanks again! Katelyn & Howard
